Critical Personnel: Weapons Master

From an AP story in today's Miami Herald:
One actor picked up a pistol he had borrowed from another cast member and fired it at the head of fellow actor Fred Kellerman.
When using guns onstage, you NEVER stage it so an actor ACTUALLY points the gun at another person, be it actor, stagehand, or audience.  Oh, what happened to Fred?
The bullet only grazed Kellerman's ear.
Lucky man.  No play is worth dying for.  Not even Of Mice and Men.
