David PressleyWALTON COUNTY, GA – A genius shooting at a lawnmower stuffed with explosives blew off one of his legs, and the incident was captured on video.

Before I go on, the explosives the man was using is called Tannerite. It is often used with shooters in small amounts because when it is hit by a bullet, it will create a small explosion.

The manufacturer recommends using about 1/2 a pound but, as you can imagine, people often use a shitload more and like to stuff it into things to blow up – things like vehicles, wild hogs, and even barns.

In this case, 32-year-old David Pressley and his friends decided to load three pounds of Tannerite in an old lawnmower.

As you can see in the following video, Pressley takes multiple shots at the lawnmower with a rifle before he finally triggers an explosion. The resulting blast sent debris flying, and Pressley lost his left leg below the knee in the process.

Pressley’s friends used a tourniquet around his leg and drove him to a nearby road where EMS met the group and he was airlifted to Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta. He is expected to recover.

This is not the first time we have featured a story involving Tannerite. Last year, a man put some in a metal pot and shot it with a high-powered rifle. The resulting explosion ended up killing his 8-year-old nephew.
