    I found this on the web:

    Man Hurts Himself Trying to Loosen Lug Nut -- With a Shotgun
    SOUTH KITSAP

    A 66-year-old man shot himself in both his legs Saturday afternoon while trying to loosen a stubborn lug nut with a 12-gauge shotgun.

    Kitsap County sheriff's deputies were called to the residence on the 10800 block of SE Olympiad Drive at 2:57 p.m. after the shooting was reported to 911 emergency dispatchers, said Deputy Scott Wilson, a sheriff's office spokesman.

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

    South Kitsap Fire and Rescue medics treated the man at the scene. He was taken to Tacoma General Hospital. Wilson said his injuries were "severe but not life-threatening."

    Deputies at the scene reported the man blasted "double-ought" buckshot at the wheel from "arm's length," Wilson said.

    The deputies described the man's legs as "peppered" from his feet to his mid-abdomen with pellets, pieces of the wheel and other debris. Some injuries went as far up as his chin.

    The man had been repairing the Lincoln Continental for two weeks, and had removed all the lug nuts on the right rear wheel except for one.

    "He's bound and determined to get that lug nut off," Wilson said, who did not know how long the man had been trying to free the lug nut.

    The deputies did not take a statement from the man beyond what they were able to gather while he was being treated by medics.

    "I don't think he was in any condition to say anything," Wilson said. "The pain was so severe, and the shock."

    Right, Mark; this would be harder to do on a Studebaker. The Lincoln probably had 13/16" lug nuts, giving him a larger target than the 3/4" lug nuts on a Studebaker. BP
    We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

        Interesting approach... I wonder what he thought the shotgun blast would accomplish? [?] However, I have now learned that one's legs stretch from their feet to "mid abdomen". [B)] Wonder what editor approved that???? [}]

                Maybe he was so PO'd at the final lug nut that he thought he'd teach it a lesson. Guess who go schooled that day.

                    Have never any of you been mad enough at something to make you do something stupid and foolish?
                    I don't condone it, but I understand it.

                        In a previous post,Shay was asking what tools would be needed to outfit a potential garage her father would be building. I would say - 12 gauge Shotgun would probably not be among those needed!

                            Mark,
                            I'm normally a laid back easy going guy, but don't get me mad.

                            I've never gotten that mad with a Studebaker, but I did demolish a porcelain coated steel kitchen sink with a sledge hammer once, when the D@#$% drain nut wouldn't budge after about three weeks of trying everything I could to get it loose. I was in such a rage that after I beat it into submission, I easily picked that 200 pound sink up and threw it about 50 feet out into the back yard.

                            Inanimate objects can do that to you, sometimes.
