The .17 was a pretty interesting gun, as the bullets are basically .22 magnum shells with .17 slugs in them.

I only did target shooting, and because Uncle Bob has neighbors, I couldn't shoot the big stuff, but it was fun. My favorite was his Taurus 9-shot revolver. It was the most accurate, in my opinion.

I challenged my mother to a target shooting competition, and...she....won. This doesn't decrease my manliness, though, because my mother was on the Nation Guard rifle team for a year or two after high school. Uncle Bob calls her "Deadeye" Snyder.

Nope, that's beside the point. Manliness isn't subject to petty "reason," is it?

Aw man, I live in Michigan and the fact that I am so close to Canada mean there culture influences us to some degree and I'll never get to fire thompsons and AK-47s like you true Americans get to every day.

Edit: But in the Upper Peninsula us Yooper's can go skeeter shooting! With live skeeters! (mosquitoes)

I haven't shot anything in America, prob. due to me living in NY and all. I'll apply for a license the day I become of age, but chances are I won't get it unless I'm employed as a security guard or some other position where there's a good reason for me to have a gun.


I did get to shoot Grandpappy's Mosin when in Ukraine a few times. That was quite a time ago, I was probably 7-8 at the time, seeing as cancer got Gramps when I was 8.

Poor Kvas bottles, you never stood a chance.

Sometimes I shoot the woodpigeons in our back garden, they cook up really nice as well.

For several years, I used to have one of my apartments next door to the machine gun rental shop in Vegas. "Anyone, from any country, is welcome to shoot on our range." No matter where you're from, you can always take a Vegas vacation and fire all the machine guns you want.

Also, new smiley. :haha:
