Buying all those guns, they probably think you are planning a coup and have put you on their "Suspected Terrorist" list. They probably see you driving around on that 'Cavator moving rocks and think that is where bodies are being hidden; and that your gyrations while wasp killing are some odd form of victory dance ... (etc.)

The woman looking at my license request still keeps giving me problem! She now asks for a specific reason for my new hunting rifle. Hunting rifle.


Geez. What kind of geniuses do they have at the police these days? In any case, I told her I´ll use it to hunt rabbits and rats and I´ll also use it for target practice since it´s so cheap to shoot. Didn´t mention home defense if no heavier caliber is around though wink.gif
Callidus Thorn
I'm pretty sure that that's a question that should be asked of anyone buying a gun, just on principle. Especially when they already own several.

By any chance did you refer to your house as "The Compound," instead of "The Cottage?"

I'm pretty sure that that's a question that should be asked of anyone buying a gun, just on principle. Especially when they already own several.

Thing is, .22lr is a pretty weak round. It's not exactly the weapon of choice for most criminals or terrorists, at least not in a rifle format. With a tiny, easily concealable handgun, I'd understand.

Especially if the owner has more powerful firearms, the weakest current production round with the highest misfire rate would be a poor choice for criminal use against people.

Just my opinion, not stated as a fact or as an official forum stance. I'm sure the owners would probably lean more toward your line of thinking than mine.

I just look at the .22lr and see a weak round from a ballistics standpoint. A round so weak that it isn't legal to hunt most non-pest animals in the US with it.
mirocu
There are so many varieties of hunting rifles for hunting different animals that one can´t own just one or two and he´ll be covered. You can´t hunt rabbits or ferrets with a .30-06, at least not if you plan to do something with it after you shoot it. And you can´t hunt deer or moose with a .22. There´s also the cost issue; it´s vastly cheaper to practice your shooting skills with a .22 than with a .30-06.

The only time this should be questioned is when someone is suspected of having committed a crime. Also important; innocent until proven guilty. I have not done anything ever so why am I being questioned? I´m a trained and licensed hunter, what reason could I possibly have for owning firearms?


Also, I can lie through my teeth about the purpose. What matters is my history and like I said, I´m a trained and certified hunter and there is plenty of evidence to back that up. As a law-abiding citizen with this background, I should not be questioned.

I was partially joking. I rarely drink anymore. Kids tend to take priority over personal vices. The biggest one I've missed is being able to just pick up a new game whenever I want.

Oh well, there are rarely games that catch my attention in any serious way anymore. Maybe it is the proliferation of B list games or maybe it is becoming an adult and being more difficult to please. Either way I only get genuinely excited about 1-2 games a year. Sometimes not even that.

When I was a kid I would walk into Gamestop and I was leaving with SOMETHING. Now when I go I may not even see anything I'm remotely interested in.

Heh. As a bird I can just stand there and look up at the rust buildup underneath said tank tongue.gif

Had an interesting experience today. Loaded up Morrowind and did a quest I hadn't even remembered existing. I was talking to the quest giver and all of a sudden I was hit with a moment of clarity. I remembered exactly what I was doing in real life at the time I had done it the first time over ten years ago. How my (then teenage) room looked, how the faux plastic fish moved erratically in the mock fish tank, and how I felt this sense of amazement about a game that I'm not sure I've felt since then.

Smell is well known for evoking memories that had long been buried but for me, I was caught off guard to find that a video game brought back such clear memories. Now that I'm older of course the problems from childhood seem like a total waste of time. What will I do to keep myself busy tomorrow? Does that girl from (insert class here) like me? Things of this nature, in retrospect, seem so small I'm amazed at the lack of persoective that we have as kids.

Back when I thought doing a couple of chores a few times a week was fascism and now I've experienced the 60+ hour work week. Ignorance really is bliss I guess.

Sweet story, bruh. Love it when that happens laugh.gif

Really Awesome moment (and retrospective) Kiln! Very much appreciate that you shared that!

One night I took a riiide
just across the line

I picked her up in a pickup truck
And she broke this heart of mine

Her mother said: "No-oo, sheeee`s my only daughter,"
But weeee got married on the Teeennessee Bordeeeer

I have a CD with a local band and they do this song amazingly awesome, just as the rest of any song they play btw biggrin.gif


And now, what you all been waiting for: The emptying of the wasp traps! Really, they were so full now that new wasps could barely drown tongue.gif

This is from just one of the traps

Totally not a disgusting pile of dead, lemonade-soaked wasps (plus a few other bugs)

THOU DEVOURETH WASPS?

I'm sold.

After three years of unemployment you pretty much eat whatever you get your hands on tongue.gif
Uleni Athram
True lol

My advice, which should never be taken at all, is to bread them with those Panko crumbs and make them as your crunchy snacks. Mmm, deep fried insects....
mirocu
You may be on to something here, Uleni rollinglaugh.gif



Anyway, traps have been reset and are once again out in the field, ready for new wasps. Their season is not quite over yet wink.gif
