  •  "Ya shot me!" (3+ / 0-)

    A friend of mine took his sons shooting, just as you did. He too, was out in the country and had a good dirt backdrop behind his targets. As he and his young sons returned to the car, an old man in another car drawled, "Ya shot me". "What", my friends said? The old man repeated it and pointed to his shoulder, where a bullet had grazed his skin. He wasn't seriously hurt, just some skin that was red.

    The bullet had ricocheted off a small rock. . .that was the mutual conclusion. And, that's where it all ended. Apologies where made and manly chuckles. But, I just thought that you should know that even when used with the utmost safety in mind, guns still pack a wallop and weird things sometimes do happen.

    Like the time I shot at a crow all the way across a lake with a BB gun, allowed for the wind and the arc, pulled the trigger, he turned upside down and dropped into the water. I swear, if I even thought there was a chance my shot could hit that tiny speck on the other side of the lake, I never would have pulled that trigger. But odd things happen and when they happen with guns, it can be very, very horrible.
