    Until recently, Bob Unger wasn't sure he would ever shoot again. A horseback riding accident last year left him a quadriplegic. Holding a rifle, let alone using his trigger finger, seemed out of the question. On Saturday, he proved his injuries wouldn't hold him back. A former Marine and Hillsborough County sheriff's master sergeant, Unger used a rifle to shoot down six targets at a range of 50 yards — using just his mouth. Unger was part of the Military Heroes Top Shot shooting competition hosted by the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office and held at the Walter C. Heinrich Practical Training site in Lithia. The event allowed 20 wounded and disabled veterans to return to a hobby they thought they had lost. - Shelley Rossetter
