(S.D.)-Gun Show Re-Enactor Used Real Bullets, Sentenced To Prison

By: Associated Press Posted at: 04/10/2012 10:35 AM

     RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - An Old West gun battle re-enactor in
South Dakota who wounded three onlookers when he fired live rounds
instead of blanks has been sentenced to seven and a half years in
prison.
     Paul Doering of Summerset was taken into custody immediately upon
sentencing at federal court in Rapid City on Monday. Doering had
faced up to 20 years in prison.
     Doering pleaded guilty in January to a charge of tampering in a
plea deal with prosecutors. Under the deal, prosecutors dropped the
original charge of being a felon in possession of a firearm.
     Doering admits in court documents that he tried to hide two guns
and ammunition after the June 17 shooting in HillCity.
