Weightlifter Shot Himself by Dropping Dumbbell on a .22 Round

What do you think about this one?  Is his story true? (Read it here.) A man from Modesto, CA says he was lifting weights and accidentally dropped one of the weights on a .22 round laying on the floor.  The weight hit the rimfire and “shot” the bullet into his shoulder.  If it is true, this is the kind on thing that only happens in the vicinity of Hollywood.  I am just wondering if the word “dumbbell” in the title is referring to the man or to the weight.

  1. Sounds like BS to me. If the case is “blown out” due to being crush, the debris including the bullet will go in all directions. And yes if there were land and grove markings, that’s what we call a clue.
