Well i was at home lastnight so naturally i decided i would take some dryfire practice with my 226. my border collie is always very curious when the guns are out. so she was sitting right there while i was practicing. so i practice for awhile. and hear everyone arrive for dinner. so i rack the slide to eject the snap cap. now usually my snap cap just kind of floats up and i can catch it. well for some reason must have been the angle but that thing ejected like a bat out of hell and hit poor little tracy square between the eyes, herd a little thump and she wimpered. that probably stung her pretty bad. so i gave her a treat because i felt bad. hope it doesn't scare her away from my guns.

Oh, when I read the thread title I had this mental image of you whipping one of those little snap caps that we give the kids around the 4th of July (the little paper things that crack when they hit something hard) & making it explode on the dog's face :rolleyes: .

Apparently I need some more coffee :D .

More.

I got to bed @ 6:30 this morning & had to be back up by 9:00. I'm getting too old to be doing that kind of stuff :D . However sometimes stuff just has to be done (besides, a good time was had by all ;) ).

I too was thinking that the dog had taken one of those little white snapping things to the face. I was wondering how that was firearms related and in the General Discussion forum. I was relieved to find out I had assumed.

Just wait, it won't be as much fun in 15 years.

I'm so glad that I'm out of school. At least when I pull an all nighter now it is for something fun :neener: .

Ya know, if you didn't have a gun, this never would have happened!

Black92lx?Years ago I was practicing my golfswing in the back yard.I was hitting plastic practice balls w/a nine iron.My chow puppy had been ignoring me & was off investigating the far end of the yard.Guess what happened next.Yep,from out of knowwhere she rushed the ball I was swinging for.I split her upper lip wide open.I felt HORRIBLE!For years she had a little pink scar just visible against her black muzzle.It has finally faded away to the point I can't find it.

My point?Punkin still gets a belly rub every time she wants it.;)

Yes. Do it for your dog.

To help you I will lower myself and offer to take these evil snap cap ejecting devices off your hand and personally make sure that no innocent dog is ever abused thusly.

:D

When I was about 18 or so my youngest brother always tagged along when I went hunting,(Little brothers make good rabbit/pheasant dogs).Upon returning home I would rack the shells out of the shotgun and he would catch them for me. I would vary the speed and trajectory to make it rougher on him.One day I slammed the forearm back and the shell flew out striking him right in the center of his forehead.He had a nice welt for days.

A few years ago I was chipping old golf balls out to the back end of my yard with a pitching wedge and letting my wife's Dachshund retrieve them. Fun for all until I swung just as he popped up over the edge of the deck. Nailed him square in the ribs with a ball. Of course he howled, the wife came running, and guess who was in the doghouse?

I had a lab who would catch 12 ga emptys as they were ejected fron my Ruger Red label.

Gee, I wish my dogs were good at catching things. My golden retriever likes to catch tennis balls...with her face. She stands there and stares at the nice, easy toss I make. Shes continues to look at it...then flinchs right before it hits her. If she'd open her mouth, it would be no problem. I guess it just doesn't compute for her. She lets the ball roll away and then walks up to me slowly and sits. :rolleyes: Goofy dog.

The other one just likes to steal my open beers or drinks. She has an affinity for good scotch :fire:
