    “Firing a MISSLE!!”

    Under the Florida statute, a “missile” is anything that is capable of producing death or great bodily harm. A bullet, a rock, an arrow, etc. Cases have stuck for other objects like a filled soft drink bottle, a metal lock and even a grapefruit.

    Here’s the grapefruit case if anyone is interested:
