    No pigs in that country thankfully. Goats though. Have shot 4-500 in the last 12 months, both ground shooting and out of a machine.

    Nope not really. Although some of the guys that have ground shot it for us take a few legs home. Mostly just pest control. They've cost the landowner over $100k in damage in the last year so they have to go.

    If you ever get the inclination to do that again I will reach through the interweb thingy and give you a wedgie. You must have gone close to a hundred posts into old threads I have posted in causing me to go in them to make the bloody things disappear. The first three pages this afternoon was a wall of Willus'. Or is that Willusi?

    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Don't laugh, so did I. That probably explains why there are a few more bodies floating around during the day.

    Think Rushy has forgotten what his toes look like.

    Reminds me of the old joke.

    A: Have you seen Dolly Patrons new shoes?

    B: No.

    A: Neither has she.
