    VAN METER, Iowa (AP) - A 29-year-old Iowa man is recovering after accidentally shooting his own finger during target practice.

    The Iowa Department of Natural Resources is investigating the incident that happened Sunday afternoon at Badger Creek State Recreation Area in Madison County.

    Authorities say Zach Sainz inadvertently let one of his fingers get in front of the 9mm handgun he was firing.

    Sainz was taken to a Des Moines hospital for treatment of a non-life threatening injury.

    His condition wasn't immediately available Sunday evening.
