Fun With Guns: Armadillo Revenge Edition

They have not released his name, probably because he was too drunk to know it, but he obviously does not read the newspapers.

In East Texas a guy went out his backdoor at 3:00 am and spotted an armadillo.

He went outside and took his .38 revolver and shot three times at the armadillo,” Rowe said.The animal’s hard shell deflected at least one of three bullets, which then struck the man’s jaw, he said.The man was airlifted to a nearby hospital, where his jaw was wired shut, according to Rowe.

First off, that armadillo didn’t do a damn thing to that guy and probably didn’t even draw first. They are a nuisance for sure, but not a .38 caliber revolver at 3:00 am nuisance.

Second off, how many times do we need to tell you that armadillos do not make good target practice?
