    Default Imbecile Attempts Lug Nut Removal W/Shotgun, Predictable Result Ensues

    Best to use tools when loosening lug nut


    SOUTHWORTH, Wash. - A man trying to loosen a stubborn lug nut blasted the wheel with a 12-gauge shotgun, injuring himself badly in both legs, sheriff's deputies said.

    The 66-year-old man had been repairing a Lincoln Continental for two weeks at his home northwest of Southworth, about 10 miles southwest of Seattle, and had gotten all but one of the lug nuts off the right rear wheel by Saturday afternoon, Kitsap County Deputy Scott Wilson said.

    "He's bound and determined to get that lug nut off," Wilson said.

    From about arm's length, the man fired the shotgun at the wheel and was "peppered" in both legs with buckshot and debris, with some injuries as high as his chin, according to a sheriff's office report.

    "Nobody else was there and he wasn't intoxicated," Wilson said.

    The man was taken to Tacoma General Hospital with injuries Wilson described as severe but not life-threatening.

    Damn, I didn't know a shotgun was a tire changing tool.

    I learn a lot coming to this board.

    We're doomed.

    P.S. Did this guy have all of his fingers? The reason I ask is this sounds like a person who is the reason that we need warning labels on lawn mowers about placing our fingers underneath them while they are running.

    Dumbass, yes, but I know how the poor schmuck feels. I used to have an old Ford I wanted to take a shotgun to many a time. (Not that FORD)

    Bullwinkle, I know your wit is quicker than mine (and apparently so are your fingers) but that's exactly the first thing I thought after reading the article.
