After grabbing the gun, the Fremont Township woman slammed its butt-end onto the floor, causing the gun to go off and fire into her face.
When police responded after receiving reports of a gunshot victim, they found the 51-year-old with a facial wound. She reportedly told officers that she wanted to use the firearm to "make a point."
The woman was taken to St. Mary's of Michigan in Saginaw and she is expected to make a full recovery.
Michigan police will continue to investigate the incident, but no charges have been filed at this time.
