Only in certain circles of friends. Some things just aren't meant for the internet.

...On the other hand, what's the scoop? ;)

Hows the stump?!?!

Guess its my turn....

Anyway I once had a neighbors cat that kept shittin' in the flower bed, so I though I would shoot the little bastard with my pellet gun. I didn't really want everyone to know I was shooting it to scare it off so I thought about it and came up with a grand idea. Shoot it through to peep hole in the door since it was the opening style peep hole. First shot the cat sat there like nothing...Kinda sounded funny...Second shot the cat sat there and I am getting pissed at this point...Still sounded funny...3rd shot the cat jumped and ran and no funny noise this time??? Hmmmm.....

Moral of the story....Pellets fly better when they do not have to travel through glass storm doors....

Well, this might be a little off topic, but I think it fits.

I was 16 or 17 when I got my first apartment. I bought a Barnett 150 lb. compound crossbow, but had nowhere to shoot it. I went to a shop with a lot of archery supplies and picked up a backstop and asked the salesman if it would be good enough to stop what I was shooting. "No Problem", he says.

So I set it up in front of my front door and go across the living room (the longest shot possible in that little hell hole). I pull the string back, load it, aim, and fire.


The bolt wasn't on the target at all. In fact, it was nowhere to be seen. Then I noticed that there was about a 3/8" hole in my door. The bolt had gone through the backstop, through my metal fire door, and into the T-111 siding on the exterior hallway opposite my door.

I had a hell of a time getting that thing out of the wall too... Patched the door up with Bondo and put the backstop away until I got some less powerful toys...

Hehe.... Well, when I was a kid I was always the one that would try out the questionable bike ramp first, ride down the face of the small cliff first, etc. Luckily, most injuries were minor

Actually, every time I missed the "bullseye" of whatever I was shooting at I guess I hit something else by "accident"!
