Back in February, we brought you the viral video of a DEA agent shooting himself in the leg while giving a gun safety demonstration. Today, we bring you the video of a man shooting himself in the leg while having a duel with a fake silhouette.
The video, it should be noted, contains some graphic language. After all, the man does shoot himself in the leg. So for those who do not want to play the raw footage, the Daily Mail offers a non-vulgar play-by-play:
Standing not six-inches from the target, its was a surprising shot to miss.
Sporting a cowboy hat, he pulls the gun from his pocket* at some speed.
Pulling it out, it goes off and he shoots himself in the leg.
He hollers: 'I just f***ing shot myself,' cowering in pain.
Hobbling away for the target, he wails: 'Ahh son of a b****, I just shot myself.'

According to Business Insider, the shooter/victim is gun enthusiast is Tex Grebner. He posted the video of the incident online in order to show people what not to do.
In an explanation, Grebner said the incident was in part due to practicing with a different holster than the one he used in the video. Still, he wants this to be a lesson.
"Negligent discharges happen," Grebner says, "and I don't want them to happen to anybody else. Gun safety is everybody's business."

*We realize it's a holster and not a pocket. However, the Daily Mail has it listed as the former rather than the latter.
