First shot at 10 years old, was dads single shot .22, you know the ones you had to pull the firing pin back, after a box (maybe two) of shorts I thought I was a sniper when I hit the beer bottle at 25 feet
My first memory of a SHOT was with my brother. We went bear huntin....LOL
We had gotten Pop guns for Christmas that shot little round corks. They looked like a Daisy BB (red ryder) lever gun. When spring rolled around we still had some corks, we had already lost most of em. We went to the woods and there in a Huckleberry patch was a black bear munching away. Dont remember how big it was, looked big to us. We both loaded up and took our best shot. they made a loud POP...I dont think we were close enough to auctully hit it, but the POP startled it. The bear took off one way and we beat feet the opposite direction...... Thats the only time I have taken a shot at a bear....
Me likes 'em too! Don't you wish we all had this collection of weaponry and the stuff to feed them all on a regular basis!? Another notch for us good guys and a thorn in the side of the antis! Thanks for the post
Yeah, that was a great gun; birch furniture, 26" tubes w/fixed mod & full chokes, light & fast, took many quail, dove & pheasants with that bad boy! sadly when I was about 19 it would slam fire when closing the breach, so I traded it for a 870 Express 12 ga (dumb, I know) cause I wanted a "man's" shotgun. But I enjoyed it for many years!
