A word of warning to those attempting to shoot an armadillo. Their armour is like a shield of steel (quoting wise words of Batfink). A guy in Texas tried and the bullet ricocheted back into his face. He was airlifted to hospital and his jaw wired shut.

You wouldn’t read about it. A man from Georgia had the dubious task of having to explain to police how he shot at an armadillo and the bullet ricocheted off its armored hide and went straight through a fence and then the door of a mobile home and chair before landing in the back of his mother-in-law. She lived to tell the tale but sadly the armadillo didn’t.
OK here’s the thing Salmon fisherman, you don’t use a friggin .22 caliber rifle to catch your prey because a) it ain’t “fishing” and b) the bullet may ricochet off a rock and hit you in your goddam noggin….. make that your temple!!! The man from Thurston County said that when he scratched his injury with his finger “the bullet fell out of his head in the river”
Psst Ironically he was treated and released from a local hospital, more than I can say for the poor salmon!!
2nd Psst Why thank you Craig Perry for your heads up on this story
A quick thinking New York cop saved himself from a bullet by wedging his finger between the gun hammer and cylinder after a man put a revolver to his stomach. Yeah, OK, he got his ring finger broken for his troubles but he avoided his own funeral. Bravo Sergeant Michael Miller.
A man in Germany went to the docs after feeling a lump in the back of his head only to discover it was a bullet. Yes, the man had been shot during a New Year’s Eve party five years prior. The Polish man who had been drunk at the time recalled receiving a blow to the head but didn’t bother seeking medical attention. Fortunately for him the 22 caliber slug didn’t penetrate the skull.
