Man learns he accidentally shot himself 3 days after the incident occurred
Many people have accidentally taken a bullet while cleaning their firearms, but one man in Florida may be among the very few to not realize he's done so, reports The News-Journal.
Michael Blevins of Deltona went to an area emergency room on Saturday after noticing there was a fairly fresh gunshot wound on his arm.

He later told deputies that he'd likely been injured on Thursday, as his gun had gone off in the midst of a routine maintenance.
Though he recalled experiencing a great deal of back pain just prior and hit his head on the coffee table while falling to the ground, he did not feel the gunshot itself.
According to UPI, Blevins noted that could be due to the pain medication he takes for an ongoing condition.
Authorities have closed the investigation into the incident.
