She was taken to Nassau University Medical Center in East Meadow with a nonlife-threatening flesh wound.

The accident occured about 10:40am when the woman, not a law enforcement officer, was in the process of putting her weapon into the holster.

The course was taught by an outside contractor, and the rifle and pistol range “operates standard safety procedures.”
