Richard Henkes, 55, was working at Dalton Outdoors repairing a gun when he went outside around 4 p.m. to test fire the weapon. When he pulled the trigger, the shell discharged before it was in the chamber, pushing the wad out of the weapon and into the man's thumb and cheek, according to Dalton Outdoors Co-Owner Mike Evavold.
