It’s a slow news day in the world of sports, but this story is pretty cool–and I just don’t mean for the horrifying contraption you see above.
That guy there is Jamie Cap, a 46-year-old hunter who also happens to be quadriplegic, the result of a football accident some 30-odd years ago. But being confined to a wheelchair, without the use of his hands or legs, kind of put the kibosh on Cap’s hunting fun.
But that’s all changed, thanks to a 2 1/2 year legal battle that Cap finally won, which allowed him to own and operate a 12-gauge shotgun. How you ask? Via a battery-powered machine that is operated by a breathing tube.
Cap fired his first shot in three decades, an experience he could only describe as “priceless.”
