Paging Mr. Darwin

In my hometown of Gainesville, Florida, a man was hospitalized after trying to shoot a squirrel with a .40 S&W cartridge taped to the end of the barrel of a BB gun. The cartridge exploded, striking him with fragments.

This genius, a felon prohibited from owning real firearms, claims he was trying to kill a squirrel for dinner. Well, the BB gun involved, a Crosman 760 Pumpmaster, is capable of killing a squirrel without additional help. Or it would be easy enough to catch squirrels in a havahart trap, for that matter.

What a maroon! But I've always found that stupidity is its own reward, and now ... so has he.

Something strange about this one... Just sayin...

@Old NFO: I try never to assign more complexity to a story like this than can be explained by utter stupidity. Occam's Razor.
