Man Blows Own Leg Off Shooting Tannerite Target

Absolutely, 100 percent do NOT try this at home.

According to the Walton County Sheriff’s Department, a deputy responded to a 911 call Saturday about an explosion. The caller reported that 32-year-old David Pressley was shooting at a mixture of ammonium nitrate and aluminum powder in the woods and “had possibly blown his legs off from the explosion.” Two of Pressley’s friends fashioned a tourniquet around his leg, helped him into the front seat of a vehicle and drove him to a nearby road. EMS met the group there. Pressley was airlifted to Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta, and is now recovering from the incident.
