    Man's choice to use shotgun to loosen lug nut turns out bad



    SOUTHWORTH, Wash. (AP) - 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.

    We dallied under
    Vine maples and sapling alders
    Searched for lady slippers
    But instead
    Found blackberry riots and
    Desiccated branches

    An old skid road
    Brought ghost ferns and
    Hollows filled with
    Skunk cabbage
    While waves wrapped
    Intricate lacings of weeds
    'Round mule spinners

    His cyanotic eyes
    Were hard enough to make
    The sun turn tail and
    Tender enough to attract me
    To his world of illusion

    Ok, I've gotten pissed off enough at my car a few times to the point where I have threatened to shoot my car, but I've never actually done it because ricochet is a bitch.
    repairing a Lincoln Continental for two weeks at his home ... and had gotten all but one of the lug nuts off the right rear wheel by Saturday afternoon,
    but then again, I'd be pretty pissed off if it took me two weeks to get a lug nut off, too.

    Man hurt using gun to change tyre

    A US man has injured himself in both legs after attempting to loosen a stiff wheel-nut by blasting it with his gun.

    The 66-year-old man from Washington state was repairing his car outside his home when the accident took place.


    Shooting at the wheel from arm's length with his 12-gauge shotgun, he was peppered with buckshot and debris.

    The man - who police say was on his own and not intoxicated - was taken to hospital with severe, but not life-threatening, injuries.

    The man, from South Kitsap, 10 miles (16km) southwest of Seattle, had been repairing his Lincoln Continental for two weeks, according to the police, and had removed all but one of the nuts on the right rear wheel.

    Frustrated by the one remaining nut which refused to budge, he resorted to fire power in an effort to shift it.

    "He's bound and determined to get that lug nut off," said Deputy Scott Wilson, a spokesman from the sheriff's office.
    He sustained injuries from his feet to the middle of his abdomen, with some pellets reaching as high as his chin, police said.

    I know how much some of you like your firearms but seriously lubricant and a larger wheel brace or socket would have been a more appropriate tool.
