Sometimes you don’t want to hold ’em like they do in Texas.

A Lone Star State man officiating a wedding in Nebraska over the weekend accidentally shot his grandson in the shoulder as the elder man pulled out a revolver to corral the crowd and begin the ceremony, according to the Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office.

Michael Gardner, 62, stands accused of one count of child abuse for negligently firing his Pietta 1860 snub nose revolver, authorities say.
