    Will the Bowen make it off the wall for the turkey shoot? After that 15 in the handicap I think it's time to scrap the Beretta and bring out the Gold Gilded Bowen. You might as well look good while you shoot 15's.

    Now... Do you really think that pretty Bowen is nice enough to make the likes of him "look good"??? C'mon... Do we need to have you drug tested???

    Well, what happens is people tend to look only at the Bowen and seem to not notice the guy caring the gun looks like Grumpy from the seven dwarfs and walks like the hunchback of Notre Dame.

    Now that you mention it, he does resemble "Grumpy"... A little too tall to fit the bill completely. I don't recall Snow White giving Grumpy a two headed quarter for tie breaker flipping though? Where does that fit into the Mpls Gun Club Fairy Tale???

    I always had him pegged for a tall "Ewok" from Star Wars... Does his Bowen convert to a light sabre by chance???

    Or.... If he were to shoot on the "infamous" Dog Squad.... He does look a bit like an older Shih Tzu... You already have a Schnauzer right???

    God, the thought of him shooting on the Dog Squad is quite honestly a sickening thought. The squad would truly have gone to the dogs if that happened. You see all of the current Dogs are purebreds. The best of the best. The top barkers available. The pooches that frequently piss highest on the trees. The canines that are admired. Putting Jimmy Bowen on the squad would surely result in a lowering of our AKC status. Allowing a lowly mutt to shoot with the purebreds cannot ever be allowed.

    Although, I suppose, if we had to, we could allow him to shoot one event with us, sometime. Kind of a "give a loser" a break kind of thing. I could see it now, Jimmy would be kind of a mascot. He could walk behind us (to prevent him from lifting his leg on our shooting bags). We, of course, couldn't allow him to shoot his Bowen, the Dogs only shoot good guns, Krieghoff's and Perazzi's. We would have to hold back a bit naturally, to make sure his score was at least close to ours. We couldn't eat lunch with him, the sight of all that food matted in his muzzel hair is disgusting. We would, of course, pretend he wasn't actually "with" us. We would want everyone to just assume he was lucky enough to have squaded with us by chance. If pressed on the issue, we would have to give him a name I suppose. Most likely candidates would be Viagra Dog, since he is the first recorded case of a shooter that needs to take the drug just to hold up his gun. Or maybe we would call him dumb dog for his need to handicap himself with poor equipment. Or maybe Little Dog as I hear he shoots a three inch barrel. No, I think if he were to shoot with us we would have to call him by one and only one name, OLD DOG, cause he really looks old.

    Wow... That is kind of an interesting explanation... See now, the way you guys run in a pack, pretty much terrorizing the Southern states shoots... Stories of cavorting with anything on 2 or 4 legs..... Sheep included according to the Lit guy... I always had your crew pegged as a pack of "hounds"... Never thought of you guys as purebreds... That gives something of a new perspective...

    I know what you mean about that Walkodilliac guy. One time I was squadded with him... The sun coming off all that "Bling" on the Bowen was very distracting. Kind of like those 20" low profile rims with spinners on a mid 80's Caprice...

    I have to give him credit though, through all that hair... he usually does set some pretty good targets... And some fine food at their shoots...

    The food has to be great, he eats most of it.
