    I was searching for Cactus weapons on Yahoo search and came up with this...

    <div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body"> (February 1982, Arizona) Desert marksmen aim their weapons at Saguaro cacti so frequently that Arizona was forced to declare the "sport" a felony. Offenders risk a $100,000 fine and three years in prison. But that doesn't stop sharpshooters like 27-year-old David, who was trying to impress friends when he opened fire on a Saguaro in 1982.
    He was killed when it fell on him.

    He reportedly fired two slugs from a 16-gauge shotgun at a 27-foot cactus, and began to shout, "Timber!" He only had enough time to utter the first syllable before a 23-foot section of the prickly plant fell and crushed him beneath its spiky skin.

    This story was confirmed by a caller to RAdio-Free Wease in Rochester, NY, who swore it happened "years ago" when he lived in Arizona. He placed a call to the Arizona Republic and the operator connected us to editor Tamara Thornton, who clearly rememberd the incident, but said it happened "like fifteen years ago."
