My fat ass shooting

Putting rounds into spent shotgun shells laying on a Platte River sandbar..


It’s been a while.  I didn’t shoot pizza-box, but I managed not to disgrace myself, either.

Oh, yeah, this is the Platte:


Plus, The Bunny does fireworks:                    dscn3071.JPG

She’s a girl, though, so she didn’t get quite as excited as we hoped she would….

    SHE’S A GIRL?!?
    Excuse me, THIS girl spent half her summers as a kid trying to make her own “fireworks that don’t suck” out of a combination of (a) whatever kid-safe (i.e. crap) fireworks that the 5 and Dime would sell us, and (b) whatever chemicals and nifty shit I could Macguyver out of the garage.
    Okay, so it never worked (i.e. I was never rewarded with a sufficiently nifty explosion, which was probably a good thing), but it was a lot of fun and kept me out of trouble.
    It was Wisconsin… what else was there to do?

  2. Well, I was all wondering “why isn’t she clapping her hands with glee?”

    And then she explained that we were boys. And cute.

    What could I say?

    Sigh, I need a girl like that. Most women run screaming when I regress on the Fourth and bring out my inner six year old with my 34 year old’s ability to buy guns, ammo, powder, gas, driver’s license, and pipes and fuze.

    I just don’t get it.

  4. My mom wouldn’t allow a gun in the house when I was growing up on Guam, so my dad had a speargun under their bed instead. He told me not to touch it because… um… I would if he didn’t…. 🙂

    Also, because of my mom, we’d only have sparklers for the 4th — so I’d have sparkler-sword fights with my siblings (but only if the sparklers were the metal kind. As I found out recently, the bamboo ones don’t work as well).
