Remember that old saying about how you shouldn't bring a knife to a gunfight? Well, apparently bringing a hammer to a gunfight works out better -- or at least it did on Saturday night in Wellington.
A man reportedly showed up at 8410 N. Third Street with a couple of uninvited guests -- a handgun and a shotgun. Tempers soon flared among the seven-to-ten people in attendance, and while a Larimer County Sheriff's Department rep says the man got off a couple of shots, the main damage done was to his cranium, after someone whacked it with a hammer, sending Mr. Armed But Not as Dangerous as You'd Think to an area hospital. Guess he didn't realize it was hammer time.
