    Knocks at the door

    Every year strange little people wearing bizzare costumes knock on the door with a thinly-veiled threat: " TRICK OR TREAT"! This usually happens the last day in October.

    Can anyone reccomend a good defense candy? Thanks, john (who is hunkering down under a layer of Tootsie Pop wrappers).

    Problem is the same as with ammo. The moment we buy it, we go and use it. Buy candy early. "Check out" the quality. Eat it before the little monsters arrive. Stockpile ammo, then have the urge/craving to go "check it out" at the range.

    No self-control. Sigh.

    I recommend loading your shotgun with rock candy and blasting it across the street to keep the little goblins at a safe distance.

    Me and a couple of friends were actually thinking about building up the front of his house to look like it had been bombed out, setting up a MG nest in his bedroom window and putting his now ever so out of service MG42 in the window and just hanging out behind the sandbags eating john wayne crackers and playing poker while dressed up like WWII Airborne.

    We could hand out candy differently for different people. Little kids would get the nice approach and older kids would get candy apple grenades tossed at their heads. Sounded like fun at the time.

    When I was a kid, any grown up that resisted handing over the goods was gonna pay dearly for their decision.

    I don't know. Is that a good idea? You'd have all the fat kids in the neighborhood running back and forth in front of your house with their mouths open!
    And yes, I can make fun of fat kids. I WAS one! (Did I say "was"?)

    You'll never go wrong with chocolate.
    Or beer for the older ones.
