I was mowing the lawn when I heard coyotes howling on the ridge across the highway from my house. I got out the 10-22 but couldn't see over the neighbor's house even standing on the riding mower, so I borrowed my other neighbor's kid's beach ball and sat it on the seat of the lawn tractor. I could only get one foot to stay on the ball, so I had to balance with the other leg as a stabilizer. I fianlly got to see where the coyote was, but he'd moved so I had to shoot left-handed. I also had to close my right eye. Also, it was getting dark so I held the rifle in my left hand and my Thor 15-million candle spotlight overhead in my right hand.
All I had for the 10-22 was CB Shorts so I held a little over- the ridge is 1.53 miles away from the house according to GPS. I wanted to make sure I hit him, so I fired the entire 25-round mag so fast the neighbors called the BATF to report a machine gun next door.
After the BATF showed up and asked me a few polite questions and then left, I went looking for the coyote. I found him, and all 25 shots had hit him in the left eye.
That's all.

I thought the point of an April Fool's joke was to make people believe something that's not true. Not to simply relate your own experiences.

This just in: In a surprising move by the US Congress, China is now allowed to export ammunition and firearms into the United States. Hopefully, this will please the Chinese as they have been complaining about losing $1 Billion dollars every year due to these trade sanctions.

In other breaking news, the Brady organization has given up its cause because someone read the Second Amendment and realized that the "Right to Bear Arms" is not just limited to a hunting/sporting cause.

In a related news story, the Democrats have finally realized that military appearance does not equate to a military firearm and will drop all causes to have such weapons banned. They finally realized that guns are not as easy to get as initially thought and responsible gun owners do not contribute to crimes created with guns.
