For my brother Tom, his wife Rebecca, sent us this text last night. I have not heard back from them since.



Just wanted to tell you tom accidentally shot himself in the leg w/granddaddy's smith & Wesson. Went thru & thru from back of leg at knee to outer thigh. In ER in local hosp. Will be transported to Norfolk Gen tonight.

He will be fine. Very scary though.
Was home from Outer Banks & unpacking. .38 was in zipper pouch in dresser drawer. Picked it up to ck if I had unloaded i. Speed loaders were in the pouch too, & I was holding pouch w/left hand & unzipped it with right hand. Pistol fell out onto bedroom floor. Evidently the hammer struck first & went off hitting me @ back of knee, with round entering medial and exiting laterally. I failed to have hammer over an empty chamber.

He is doing well and healing . He said the bullet passed through his leg, through the foot board of the bed, went through the dresser and lodged in the wall. Glad no one else was in the room with him. Could have been a lot worse.

It's a wonder he's still here. This is a post from Facebook.

Gigged once by Terry, shot at twice @ 8 years old by Ken and again at 14 with .410, reported killed in the Candlestick Park tornado in 1964, KIA twice in Vietnam, and now this! God is great!! He watches over His own. ;)

By the way, we were fighting as brothers often do. He was jabbing the frog gig at my feet telling me to dance. As he walked away I threw the gig about a foot or two from him. My brother Ken, hollered for him to watch out, and he ran right in front of it. That was the worst day of my life. He would never go frog gigging after that.
