Man Shoots Friend —at His Request
Ready, aim, experiment! (This is not the friend in question.)   (?jonsthedrummer02)

(Newser) – A good friend has your back—and your leg? That was apparently the case in northern New York, where authorities say a man shot his friend in the leg with a rifle because said friend wanted to know what it feels like to be shot. State police say the shooting occurred around 5pm Sunday in the rural town of Stockholm when 25-year-old Shawn Mossow relented to his friend's repeated requests and shot him once in the right leg with a .22-caliber rifle. The unnamed 24-year-old is expected to make a full recovery. Mossow was charged with reckless endangerment and is being held in the county jail on $10,000 bail. (Read more strange stuff stories.)
