There was a story a few years ago about a guy who accidentally sawed off his hand, then shot himself in the head with a nail gun (presumably trying to off himself). Survived the whole thing.

The guy with the nail gun was wearing the most important saftey item... safety glasses. :thumbsup:

Guessing by the trajectory, I'd say this wasn't an accident.
Is it bad that the first thing I thought of when I saw this story was Happy Gilmore?

Innovative (Australia has tough gun laws)? Or is it just a sign of these timely economic-downturning times where even Joe the Plumber/Carpenter knows that nails are cheaper than bullets?

Gonna use that in my next training- why you don't want to defeat the single-shot mechanism on a nail gun....... :D

Misfire, but I think the other 29 completed the job.

Nail directed into the skull in the direction of the X-Ray. Perspective makes it looks small.

"This reminds me of a case in Edinburgh. Poor fellow fell backwards off of a 5 story building and landed head first onto a open box of nails."
