Trigger unhappy

AN ELDERLY man in the US injured himself when he attempted to loosen a stiff wheel nut by shooting it with his gun.

He had been repairing his car outside his home when he became frustrated that one of the wheel nuts was not coming loose, so he took his shotgun to it. He was taken to hospital with injuries from his feet to the middle of his abdomen and as high as his chin but his injuries, though serious, were not life threatening. He was not intoxicated at the time of shooting.
