Black and white .22 caliber bullet Originally uploaded by JinglyJon

My mom always told me and my brothers to not play with sharp objects, run with scissors or shoot ourselves in the head. While this may not seem like something to poke fun at, the boy who was at a relative’s farm east of Kellwood, is now in critical but stable condition (and is OK considering he shot himself in the head).

The boy, 12 and his older brother, 14 (always great for stuff like this) were practicing target shooting on the farm.

I’m not sure how you would do this (well, I KNOW…but why). Let’s hope the boy gets better and has learned from this experience.
