Authorities say a Cape Coral man was injured after striking bullets with a hammer in his driveway.
Police say they received a report of a possible shooting at 21-year-old Matthew F. Dugger's home on Thursday afternoon. When officers arrived, they found the man had been injured.
Dugger was taken to a nearby hospital to be treated for shrapnel that hit his leg.

This problem is somewhat self-limiting.
Somebody get the man some nitro...
How about this one, true story...years ago the chief of police in Madison,Wi put his service pistol in his OVEN for “safe keeping”. Needless to say someone later turned the oven on and the bullets went off. And yes, he was NOT fired for this. The libtards probably gave him a raise.
Keep an eye on this guy. He is a potential Darwin Award Winner.
Aspiring Darwin nominee?
I went out to the driveway and hit a handful of bullets with a hammer to try and duplicate this. It just kind of flatten them out. Never try that with cartridges however they might injure you.
Ya think alcohol might be involved?
Keep trying, dude.
I still prefer “Man shot in testicle by .22 LR cartridge used as replacement fuse in pickup truck”. With that one, you can almost hear the Deliverance music playing in the background.
I dunno... He just sounds like he’s had a repressed childhood. I did all kinds of goofy stunts like that as a kid. Mostly just *ONCE*. Nothing beats a roll of paper caps smashed with a brick. Unless you tape a shotgun shell to the end of your BB gun so the primer is hit. Hell, the hardware store used to sell us gun powder by the one pound can...
Okay, now I have go out and try that.
(Where'd I put that BB gun?)
Have to wonder - at what temperature do rounds "cook off"?
The military term for that is a force multiplier.
Just don’t take too many shots to figure out you need to hang the BB gun out the garage window...
What a great freakin' idea! It's easier than stripping a wire and lacing it around the fuse and who doesn't have spent 22's rolling around their truck bed? Whoops, gotto go. Seem's my truck is on fire.< /JK>
M-80’s send cans 10 feet or more.
Well the arty shells actually wouldn’t go off that way unless they were defective. The fuse doesn’t arm until the shell is fired. The high G force of the acceleration arms the fuse.
The guys loading the shells tend to miss the breech once in a while, especially after they get tired. They can bang the nose of the shell pretty hard when they miss while trying to chamber a round in a hurry.
