I went to the range today to road test a nice Marlin 1895SS 45/70 levergun I picked up at a recent gunshow. I put a 16X scope on it just to eliminate sighting errors and test some reloads, having read that 2 to 3 inch 5 shot groups are to be expected at 100 yds. I was suprised to get numerous 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 inch groups, and was about to go home happy when I spotted a 5 inch long lizard sitting on my target frame. We have these little lizards in Florida, they migrated from Cuba, and are cute little bastards, but then so are prairie dogs and we don't have any of them. Anyway I decided to take one last shot, aiming for a head shot, which isn't easy when the varmint has a 3/8 inch head. I fired and nothing seemed to happen. I could still see the lizardo sitting on the metal frame. I went down to retrieve my target, and found the lizard had a death grip on the target frame and no head! Ahahahahaha. I swear this is true and can attest to the fact that a 405 gr. 45 cal bullet is more than enough gun for Fla. lizard shooting.

Purchased one in 1979 and it still surprises people with it's accuracy. BTW- How do you think John Wayne killed all those Indians? Good shooting Lever actions, the Assault Rifle of the day. John Browning made a device to capture muzzle blast and operate the lever and trigger. Full Auto lever action. Story was in The American Rifleman 10 yrs. or so ago. Cover story was " Is you Deer Rifle an Assualt Weapon. Good Shooting.

I think we can afford to lose a couple lizards in the name of a laugh. It's not like we aren't hip-deep in the damn things.

Dear god RAF. We must have been married in a past life. It's like a a perfect 50/50 split on what we agree on, and what we disagree on. I fully agree. Shouldn't have killed the lizzard. Landon. Proud hunter and killer of many things, including varmints and pests, but never a lizzard.

great... I'd have to agree. What did that lizard ever do to you? I'm so pissed. I've kill jackrabbits and coyotes and all sorts of birds, but I HAVE NEVER killed an innocent reptile like a lizard. How horrible. [;D] [):)] NSF

I'll kill rabbits if I am going to eat them. Never shot a 'yote, but if they are bad, i'd gladly do it. PrarieDog holes break the legs of Livestock. Bad news. Birds? Mmmmmmmm... Tasty. But why kill them if you aren't going to eat them? I guess it's how I was raised. I was taught that killing for food is OK. Killing for defense is OK, be it of your person, or your property. Killing for the preservation of a right ideal is OK. Killing for the sake of killing? That's a tough call. I don't go out of my way to step on bugs, nor would I take intentionial aim at a living thing in order to kill it for the sake of a good reactive target. ****************RANT***************** It kills me that "envirometalists" in their SUV's think they have some respect for nature because they try to limit my hunting rights, but hunters, the men who have a true bond with nature and the earth, are the ones they think to be eco-terrorists.

If you look closely in the story you'll notice that the lizzard in question is a exotic species from Cuba and should be wiped out on sight, just ask any dot com failed gotee head eco terrorist. Pig

It was blatantly obvious that the lizard in question was from Cuba. Obviously, he did NOT have a "green card" with him (pun intended) and is therefore not just a COMMIE LIZARD, but an ILLEGAL ALIEN WELFARE-MOOCHING COMMIE LIZARD. He begged to be shot, that's all there is to it. Maybe he will serve as an example to deter is fellow comrades from acting the same way.

Not to brag, but I've done a similar feat. I was accuracy testing my new heavy-barrelled 10/22 at 50 yards with a bunch of different ammo. I splurged and bought a box of Federal Gold Medal Ultra Match (YEOUCH! that stuff is expensive!). I was absolutely stunned that every single round went through the same hole at that range. I had just finished adjusting the scope so that the point of impact was right on the crosshairs when a horsefly (no kidding) landed on the target. I tracked the little bastard around (I've got a 3-12X Simmons on the rifle and had it cranked all the way up) until he finally stopped crawling, then squeezed the trigger. No fly. Walked out to the target and there was a hole surrounded by a bloody splatter! I pulled that target down and showed it to everybody I could find! I wish I'd kept it. I should have sprayed that thing with a fixative and framed it. I had a s**t eating grin on my face the rest of the day.[:D]

Hey troll..its a joke ...a spin off of cockroaches..... BTW I own an AR15 because the Constitution gives me the inalienable right to own one. Also dumbass a declaration and stating why I own one are the same thing.....ooops that damn Tourettes again [:D]

As long as you yelled "LOOK OUT! IT'S COMING RIGHT FOR US!" prior to shooting, your action is just.

Not to nitpick, but the neither the Constitution nor the Second Amendment "gives you the right" to own arms. Specifically, the Second Amendment guarantees that your pre-existing inalienable right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed by your government. It seems that our elected government servants (and I use that term with tongue firmly in cheek) have forgotten that. And we've let them.

My question is what would have happened had you missed the lizard and hit the metal frame?? Just a thought!!

Nice shot, MoleEye. Don't worry about your critics, everything in nature gets recycled. Nothing gets wasted. Looks like that lizard was in the wrong place at the wrong time.

MoleEye, This time you've gone too far. I can under- stand and accept the feral cat killings, but a fucking lizard? How can you be sure it wasn't some little Asian kids' pet? I think about that poor little child looking around to find his/her long lost lizard, w/ tears in his eyes until he finds the remains....missing its' head. You're going to give all us gun owners a bad name. [b] LIZARD KILLER [/b] [:D] edited to correct board code

Hey Mole Eye, maybe you could find a Komodo Dragon to test-wear your body armor? [;)]

Sometimes when hunting coyotes here in Alabama, I'll find a baby rabbit and break one of it's legs then tie it off to a tree by it's neck. The sound it makes draws in all kinds of yotes and the occasional dog. Easy to kill that way. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Not really, but that same story sure pissed off a lot of folks when I was on AOL and would cruise the liberal chat rooms!! C'mon guys!!! A lizard???? Jesus H.

Ya know.....When I was on active duty, I made it a habit to kill something every day. Got started that way when I was at RTR and my Senior Drill Instructor, Staff Sergeant Cochran, spread the gospel on how it was our duty to the tax payers of this great country to kill something every day. Since "retiring", I have slacked off quite a bit but every now and then the old habit over takes me. This mornings mission will be a nerve agent attack on the thousands of ants and a number of spiders that have infiltrated into my yard over the past 3 months. Ahhh...Mass murder and mayhem as inspired by CWO-3 Pitts, MAG-29 NBC Officer a few years back. BTW MoleEye, VERY nice shot!!!! Semper Fi

They taste just like chikin! BTW, these little lizards (Cuban Anole) are very agressive in the lizard kingdom, I guess, because they have almost completely supplanted the original bright green lizards (Green Anole) that used to be here. They were cooler, could change from bright green to brown in no time if you took them off a leaf and put them on something brown.
