Okay all, this happened tonight and I had to post it...Not just a friend of a friend of a second cousin twice removed story, I know it to be true.

First off, two groups of hunters arrange to meet each other in a field...

One ends up shot in the ass with a 30-06. The bullet hit a saw he was carrying, blasting it up but the man was only scratched. Paramedics and police arrive.

Shooter says he was shooting at a coyote on the run, and the bullet must have riccocheted, hitting his friend, who he had no idea was even there. Suuuree....

I figure it was an aimed shot at an angle where a lightly constructed bullet blew up on grazing the saw...To assume anything else is asking a lot I think. Like, it was a negligent discharge when the barrel just happened to be at that angle when his buddy was across the field?

lol What do you guys think?

Who the hell shoots their buddy with a 30-06 in the ass as a practical joke? I could understand Air Rifles, or Paintball, but a 30-06? Best friends ever.

I don't buy the coyote story either. They are pretty rare around here anyway, but its still a lame excuse. 30-06 hunting round riccochets from hitting the dirt?

CM2K, you said it. Forget Airsoft...A real friend shoots you in the ass with a high powered rifle.

Personally I think he saw his buddy in the treeline across the field, thought he was looking at a deer, and fired.

Oh, I'll believe that...

At first when I heard the story I figured the guys were kids maybe, new to hunting and shouldn't have been alone. Nah, turns out they're in their 30's.

What kind of angle would a light 30-06 bullet have to hit a hacksaw at to blow up? I bet it was a 150 gr ballistic tip or something like that, I haven't found out.
