Re-enactor Shooter Says He’s No Outlaw

RAPID CITY, S.D., Aug. 7 (UPI) — A Western re-enactor who accidentally shot three tourists in South Dakota says his brushes with the law could give people the wrong idea about him.

Paul Doering, 49, of Summerset, S.D., says he is “not an outlaw” and was as shocked as anyone when the pistol he used in a staged gun fight earlier this summer turned out to be loaded with live ammo.

Doering, who served time for burglary in Minnesota, told the Rapid City Journal he had turned over a new leaf after moving to the Dakotas and joining the Wild Bunch Re-enactors.

“Just because I’m a felon and have made mistakes when I was younger doesn’t make me a terrible person,” said Doering, who now works as a truck driver and faces arraignment in federal court Thursday on a charge of being a felon in possession of a gun.

The spectators were injured when the re-enactors opened fire with what were supposed to be blanks during a June benefit show at a guest ranch.
