    So I just killed my first animal ever (yep, never been hunting). Found a bat in my bedroom and couldn't figure out a way to get him out. So I grabbed my BB gun and nailed him right in the abdomen. Squeeled a little and fell onto a towel. I thought he was dead until I saw him move. That's when I actually felt bad for the little fella, so I popped him in the head with a pellet. Luckily he died instantly after that. He's now wrapped in a towel buried in my dumpster.

    When I entered this thread, I thought it was gonna be a story about a bat flying into an f-14's engines or some other entertaining tale of foreign object damage.

    Good call on sending him to bat heaven after he was injured.

    College of the Holy Cross NROTC Unit, graduated from Worcester Polytechnic Institute with a Bachelors in Electrical Engineering. I delayed my reporting date to July for personal reasons. I would have reported a month ago if I didn't.

    Good work, it was probably a chicom spy bat sent to spy on future naval aviators. Good luck in flight school.

    Congratulations and best of luck in flight school. :)

    You realize, of course, that you now have to tell your classmates that you shot down your first bat even before you got to school.

    (Gary - I had exactly the same thought. ;) )

    ya know, if you embelish this story a little, like:

    "...he was fluttering around the house erratically, like bats do, but I just sorta went into a zone, tracked him & nailed him on the first try..."

    ...people will be more likely to believe you are qualified to shoot down bad guys' airplanes:evil:

    Ok, something wierd. I just went outside to the dumpster to throw a bag away...and the bat wasn't there in the towel. Either a predator got it (towel wasn't really disturbed), or I only stunned/wounded it. I really hope it was only stunned, cause I'd feel like a real ******* if it was just wounded. :(

    You could be in serious trouble here. If you just stunned him, he may come back for revenge, and, knowing nothing about bats, I would like to wildly guess that they're extremely intelligent and dangerous animals that hold a grudge for a long time.

    Dude, seriously you have got problems. Undead bats are known through out history. You can't kill them with pellets! That is what wood stakes are for. You better have one tonight when you go to bed, cuz that is when he will come back. But you had better be wide awake, garlic and cross in your left hand (that is important!) Wood stake in your right. God bless you, good luck and you need to post here tomorrow, if you don't, we will know what happened.
    You have done your will and stuff, right?

    You should have tried to reason with the bat instead of resorting to violence. Try to understand the situation from the bat's point of view. Maybe he had an unhappy childhood, or perhaps he was socially disadvantaged. I'm sure the bat had a good reason for breaking into your house.

    :D
