Tellico Police Chief Russ Parks told The Knoxville News Sentinel that the man took out his.380 caliber Ruger handgun, after which he removed the magazine and cleared the chamber, following proper health and safety protocols when handling firearms.

The couple was transported to University of Tennessee Medical Center by helicopter for non-life threatening injuries, according to Parks.

Around 20 people had gathered at the church on Thursday afternoon for a Thanksgiving lunch not affiliated with the church. What I will not applaud are the idiots who sully these conversations with idiotic acts, like one of these churchgoing guys in the aforementioned Tennessee church, who ended up busting a cap in himself and his wife while trying to make a point. Another person asked to see the gun and the man pulled it out a second time.

The gun was lying on its side on a table, and the bullet sliced the man's palm and entered the left side of his wife's abdomen and exited the right.

His wife is in surgery, but is expected to survive. "It was an accidentally discharged handgun", the Tellico Plains Police Department said in a statement on Facebook.

Mistin said the injured man is a lifelong gun-owner who practises every week.
