Moron Shoots Himself to Find Out ‘What it Feels Like’

After being rushed to the hospital with a gunshot wound, a Colorado man told police that he shot himself on purpose because he was curious what it felt like.

Colorado Springs resident Adam Hirtle, 34, shot himself in the foot… both literally and figuratively.

“He wanted to know what it felt like to be shot,” police said in a statement, adding that Hirtle stated he “took his boot off and shot it, then placed his boot back on his foot and then intentionally shot himself in the foot.”

Police said Hirtle–whose injuries were not life threatening–has been charged with prohibited use of weapons and reckless endangerment.

Must be a Democrat.
