Special agents at the IRS accidentally shot their firearms 11 times between 2009 and 2011, and at least three of the cases “may have resulted in property damage or personal injury.”
Agents actually fired their guns accidently more often than they intentionally fired them in the field, according to an audit  by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA).
The September 2012 audit examined whether IRS special agents, who execute search warrants for those suspected of violating U.S. tax laws, are being properly trained and reporting incidents when weapons are fired.
