Full Bore Fool

While we’re on the subject of shotguns, how much of a numpty is this guy?

Picture the scene if you will. A grown man of 66 years of age is trying to undo the last nut that holds one of the wheels on to his vehicle. Frustrated by its stubborn refusal to come undone, he reaches not for a can of penetrating and easing oil, but for a shotgun.
Because stupid is as stupid does, he fires the shotgun loaded with 00 buckshot at the wheel while standing next to it. With inevitable results.

You couldn’t make it up.

I've seen this story in several places and pretty much everyone said the same thing as you. How dumb do you have to be to fire a shotgun at something that close to you.

Definitely a candidate for the Darwin Award. Although I think you have to die due to stupidity to be eligible for those. If I remember correctly, this guy just shot himself in the leg.
