Re-Enactor Pleads Not Guilty To Weapons Charge

RAPID CITY, SD -
An Old West gun battle re-enactor has pleaded not guilty to a federal weapons charge stemming from an incident that injured three South Dakota tourists when live ammunition was fired instead of blanks.
Forty-nine-year-old Paul Doering of Summerset is charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm because of his previous criminal record. He entered his plea Thursday.
Doering says he thought he long ago left his troubled past behind. He says he borrowed guns he thought were loaded with blanks and was shocked and terrified when he realized live rounds had been fired.
U.S. District Judge Jeffrey Viken scheduled a jury trial for Oct. 18.
