    The US Vice-President, Dick Cheney, has accidentally shot and injured a man during a quail hunting trip in Texas.
    The victim, named as Harry Whittington, was on the trip with Mr Cheney at the Armstrong Ranch when the accident happened on Saturday.
    Ranch owner Katharine Armstrong said Mr Whittington, 78, had been taken to Corpus Christi Memorial Hospital where was said to be "alert and doing fine". According to a spokeswoman, Mr Cheney spent Sunday afternoon at the hospital.

    If he wasn't the VP, he'd be in jail, pending a statement from the victim. I bet our tax dollars pay for the medical treatment. If I was the victim, I"d sue old Cheney for all his oil stock.

    My friend who's a little on the slow side, but not slow enough to be pulled out of society and locked up, once went hunting and shot his rifle with the scope right on his eye... He was an attractive circular scar around his right eye :haha: :haha:

    If you're hunting in a spread and following a bird in flight, it's pretty easy to hit someone

    I've been smacked by lead in an indoor range. You can roll with those kind of hits. Its extremely rare to be maimed from guns, unless its aimed. On the other hand, on the road, cars and trucks are the final biggest bullet out there. Aimed or not, a mistake with a vehicle is a jillion times more dangerous. Of course, the Bradys are all over this yesterday; the inside of their minds must be worse than any redmeat movie.
