I feel part of doing something stupid is the penance of sharing it with others:rolleyes:

it was my birthday yesterday, and I came home from work to find my wife bought me a few things. among them were a new clay thrower, a hogue stock for my mossburg 500, 200 rnds of #8, and a big box of clays. excited as I was, I went out in the backyard to assemble my new acquisition.
well, long story short, the first thing I did was whack myself in the shin with the thrower, and the edge of the aluminum arm cut the crap out of my leg. three stitches later, my wife laughed at me all the way home.

commence the teasing. :p

I didn't even have the shotgun out yet!:p

I was just trying to launch some clays into the woods.

lol, four rules:
alway assume your clay thrower is loaded.
never point your clay thrower at anything you don't want to destroy.
always keep your finger off the pull rope until ready to throw.
be sure of your target and beyond.

Wait, she didn't stitch you up herself? Was she laughing too hard?

That is why I am a firmly against the STSF short for Save The Skeet Foundation . Their most recent campaign has been "use enough launcher" in an attempt to get sportsman to maim themselves on launchers, thus preventing them from shooting.

She was probably was probably stitching her self up after side splitting laughter from the incident.

she was entirely amused by the whole experience, much as she always is when I maim myself in idiotic ways. she did advise I not pick up the shotgun with my track record that day.
