Police: Men shot each other to test pain

June 23, 2010 at 2:52 PM

HORSHAM, Australia, June 23 (UPI) -- Police in Australia said two men dubbed "dumb and dumber" by investigators shot each other with an air rifle to see whether it would hurt.

Horsham police said the two 34-year-old men decided to have a "bit of fun" after drinking beer Sunday and decided to shoot each other with the air rifle to see whether the shots "would penetrate their skin or it would hurt," The Australian reported Wednesday.

Police said the two men shot each other at about 5:30 p.m. and apparently believed they had escaped injury until two days later when they were hospitalized with pain and had pellets surgically removed from their legs and buttocks.

Investigators said they revoked a firearms license held by one of the men and took away his guns. They said the investigation is ongoing.
