    I have a short clip of a shooting incident I would like to post. If I email it to someone, could you post it here? This is the craziest thing I've seen about shooting. Butch

    At first I thought you were talking about the US Treasury's design of the new more secure 100 bill that the printing presses can't handle. Now they have to destroy 10 % of the money supply ( one hundred billion dollars).

    If it's the one where a guy shoots a watermelon off of the other guys head, it is not real.

    I'm glad it's fake, but, with the vast amount of stupidty running rampant, I could believe someone would try this. Several weeks ago, at a local club, a new shooter had trouble getting a shell into the chamber of a Mossberg 500. There was some type of obstruction preventing the shell going into the chamber.
    A close inspection with a flashlight revealed what looked like some type of sleeve stuck in the chamber. After a little prying with a leatherman tool, we were able to extract a 12 gauge extended choke tube from the barrel. This guy was shooting skeet with this gun with 20 gauge shells!!! He put the choke tube in the chamber, & then fired 20 gauge shells in it. He forgot the tube was there, when he wanted to try to shoot 12 gauge trap loads. I still don't believe this gun didn't come apart, or at least fracture the choke tube. I don't believe it would even extract the 20 ga round. He couldn't understand all the fuss about this,

    While we're on the subject of stupidity, this is pretty stupid too, but after all, it's "The Right War At The Right Time", with a genius at the helm.

    Is it true that a guy once splattered a watermelon at the Silver Dollar with a Barrett 50-cal fired from the Tampa Airport?!
