Exercising can be good for you, and sometimes it can cause injury, but no one expected to be injured like this. According to The Modesto Bee, a 56-year-old man said he accidentally shot himself but no gun was involved.

Modesto Police responded to a man being shot in the shoulder. When the Police arrived the man told them that he was working out and dropped his dumbbell on a .22 caliber bullet activated the propellant powder in the bullet, which shot toward him and punctured his shoulder.

The officers found this story suspicious, but not impossible! If the rim of these bullets were impacted, it can cause them to shoot in the direction it is pointing.
Officers did a search of the man home and didn't find any gun. The neighbors were questioned and they didn't see anyone leaving the mans home. The officers closed this case as suspicious!
I finally understand when the gym attendance always scream at me saying "Don't drop the weights".
I am social, got an ego, got a good sense of humor, I have a fit body and I'm usually hype!
