For years, most people have merely assumed that it's possible, even likely, to shoot yourself by whacking bullets with a hammer. Now, one brave (if not too bright) soul has proved it. From The New York Times:
_A teenager who put bullets in a vise and whacked them with a hammer to empty the brass shell casings was wounded in the abdomen by approximately the 100th bullet he hit, according to Warren County deputies.
Damion M. Mosher, 18, had been discharging .223-caliber rounds, placing them in a steel vise, putting a screwdriver on the primer, and striking the screwdriver with the hammer, deputies said._
