ORANGEVILLE, Pa. (AP) A woman wounded at a central Pennsylvania gun show during the weekend says she doesn't blame the vendor who shot her accidentally while demonstrating a concealed carry wallet holster.

In fact, 25-year-old Krista Gearhart told the (Bloomsburg) Press Enterprise (http://bit.ly/1nXOBLd ) on Sunday that her heart goes out to him for what she calls the "horrible accident."

Police in Columbia County say Gearhart was shot in the right thigh on Saturday at the Eagle Arms Gun Show at the Bloomsburg Fairgrounds. She was treated at Geisinger Medical Center and released. Prosecutors will determine whether criminal charges will be filed.

Gearhart says "it's very ironic" to be shot at a gun show. But she says if there's another gun show in Bloomsburg next year, she and her husband will be there.
