    Exclamation Hunting Season Coming Up... Be Careful!

    Just got this in an email today...

    Thought I would post it as a reminder to Be Careful When Sighting in Your Rifle!

    Sighting in your expensive new deer rifle

    1. Shiny new, high-powered deer rifle... $1,200.00

    2. Quality, high-powered scope... $550.00

    3. Bore sighting device... $140.00

    4. Hospital Visit... $4,893.00

    5. Forgetting to remove the bore sighting device prior to shooting?

    ---------------------- Priceless !

    In Darwin 's book, the score:

    Deer: 1

    Hunter: 0












    Stay Safe and Don't Let This Happen To YOU!

    consider that a lesson learned.......OUCH
    ~~~the biggest deficit of the general public is a lack of personal accountability.. I have no one to blame for my actions, regardless of circumstances, except myself and by the same token I can hold no one else responsible for my protection and well being other than myself~~~

    Bout all that rifle is good for now is a freestanding lamp! Hopefully the shooter learned a lesson
    "These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier
    and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the
    service of his country; but he that stands it now, deserves the
    love and thanks of man and woman."

    ...I thought the original caption was:

    "Bummer of a birthmark, Hal."

    My favorite "Far Side" coffee mug is two polar bears ripping open the top of an Igloo and one says to the other...
