Did anyone else catch CBS, with a bit about spud guns? They had some guy on, who lost his sight when he looked down the tube, and it went off! First dumb thing, forgetting a MAJOR rule of gun safety!!!!! Then they were talking to some LEO's who were against it, and showed one that was taken from a "drive by shooting".
Hmmmm lessee, it is called a "gun", fires a projectile, and should be treated with the same rules of gun safety, yet they are blameing the guns for the problems, instead of the ones handling them! Oh yeah, same tactic that any anti's have used before!
Something else to atack...........:banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead:

Gee, Iwander what would be the most effective on medium size game? I'd use dum dum potatoes from Ohio, they are a little harder than Maine potatoes so you get a little better penetration. A criss-cross cut over the nose end will help ensure expansion, I'm looking for the French Fry explosive effect. 45/70, eat you artichoke out.:D

Well I hear Federal ammunition is working on a new Spud-Shok Potato for self-defense. It's supposed to expand to more than 2 1/2 times its original size!

I guess you could then call McDonalds french fries "sub-calibre-amour-piercing-incendiaries" ...

Hey, if you loaded up a bunch of grapes you could have grape shot! :cool:

And if you miss the target, it's "sour grapes?"
Nah, just grape-shot.

And the little red potatoes: are they like 00 gauge?

PumpkinGuns for howitzers.

GrapefruitGuns: chemical weapons?

Not grapes, walnuts! Geez, come on, guys.:D

Btw, I wonder if the Left will be moving to ban hairspray, grill switches, and PVC pipe? Oh, yes, and reading since you can read how to make one on the Internet.:rolleyes:

Hey, with their support of government skuls and teechur unions, I guess they are attacking reading.:p

ET, that's exactly what I said to Leatherness last night when that piece of toxic waste aired. I gotta re-think my policy of trying to keep up with what the likes of Dan Rathernot are saying next.:barf:

Sounds like two things- the guy is a darwin candidate, and looking down the barrel is a self correcting problem.

When I read that story from the AP in the paper about the guy losing his sight and needing reconstructive surgery, it was mentioned that the projectile launched from the spud gun wasn't a potato, but a toad. Yes a toad... a toad.
:rolleyes:

I'll see if I can round up that article and post it.

The latter version was responsible for blinding a Texas teen earlier this month. He was looking down the barrel of a potato gun that was loaded with a frog when it went off, shooting the animal into his face.

Do you know what the last thing to go through a toads mind is when it hits your face?

Come on guys, get with the program. The key is incrementalism. First you have to ban those evil black high capacity assault gatling spud guns.

We have pretty much stopped using those dangerous potatoes here... we've almost totally switched to punkins.
