An Oregon man who was in line at a Lincoln City supermarket accidentally shot himself in the groin while flaunting a handgun and just missed hitting his femoral artery, a report said.

According to the Oregonian newspaper report, the police said Nicholas J. Ellingford, 29, accidentally pulled the trigger of the Glock 9mm while putting the firearm back into his pants. The shot reportedly entered through his groin and exited his thigh.

Fox 12 reported the incident occurred inside a McKay’s Market in Lincoln City, the police said. Ellingford was showing the gun to a friend, police said.

Ellingford was taken to an area hospital and then flown to Legacy Emanuel Medical Center Portland for further treatment, the Fox 12 report said.

“Ellingford did not have a concealed handgun license and his act was found to be reckless since it placed several people in danger,” police said, according to Fox 12.
