Jean Hugard Hurt Bullet Catch Trick

Do you know Jean Hugard had a mishap with the bullet catch act once?

According to Milbourne Christopher in his article “The Jean Hugard Story” in The Linking Ring magazine (November 1959 issue) and his book “Magic: A Picture History“, Hugard was wounded on the opening night of his second tour of New Zealand at the Wellington Theatre.

After the firing shots, Jean Hugard noticed red spots on his shirt and felt stinging pain on his chest.

Hugard quickly rushed to his dressing room, ripped open his shirt and using a penknife, pried out several pieces of shot embedded in his flesh.

One of the four riflemen had not only loaded his gun with a bullet, but had also secretly dropped a handful of metal pellets down its barrel.
