    What is the limit on Skeets in Georgia?

    Happened to have the tube on ABC this morning. One of their air-head reporters was talking about the latest "Ben & Jen" sighting being in Georgia. They were seen going into the Court House. Was this to get a marriage license (reporterettes panting heavily)? No, but Ben was, and I quote:

    "Looking into getting a hunting license to pursue his interest in skeet shooting."

    ROTFLMAO

    25 must be the limit on golfs, too. I remember Uncle Jed and Jethro wanting to shoot some golf down at the cement pond. They didn't need no stinkin' license either. Say, is Ben Jethro's boy? ;)

    HINESVILLE, Ga. - Just because Ben Affleck (news) and Jennifer Lopez (news) aren't doing much of anything doesn't mean they're not making news.

    Hollywood's most overexposed couple set gossip pages aflame anew on Monday when they popped into a south Georgia courthouse near Affleck's island home.

    But apparently it was a gun license, not a marriage license, that the on-again, off-again super couple was seeking.

    "Affleck wanted to know where he could apply for a gun permit," said Liberty County Sheriff Don Martin, who mugged for a photo before sending the couple down the hall to the probate court.

    The appearance has unleashed a horde of paparazzi and celebrity reporters onto the small town of Hinesville, where a court clerk verified Tuesday morning — apparently not for the first time — that the couple did not apply for a marriage license.

    The pair, whose recent film "Gigli" bombed after abysmal reviews, had planned to marry Sept. 14 before abruptly calling off the wedding. It would have been the third marriage for Lopez, 33, and the first for Affleck, 31.

    Somebody might want to point him towards a Florida non-resident permit and www.packing.org.

    Isn't it a great country when two mediocre individuals like Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez can get this much attention over every single thing they do?

    Gives me a lingering hope that I can still be a movie star, too........

    I doubt anyone with a clean record has trouble getting a permit in GA, if it's anything like AL...

    Keep in mind that Afflek was a big Gore supporter.

    And a lousy actor. :)

    synoptic: "so who moderates the moderators when they start up a duplicate post?"

    Well, they're not quite the same story. The other one is about Affleck getting a hunting license for skeet. Personally, I think he needs to start on Snipe before he tries for big game Skeet.

    Oops... merged it the wrong way, but I think my subject line is more descriptive so I'm going to let it slide. Thanks for pointing out the duplicate thread - searched for "Lopez" or "Affleck" in subject line and didn't see previous post.

    With so many lopez-affleck FANatics out there, the gun permit thing might be good press for CCW.

    However if I'm not mistaken afflecks history of alcohol abuse probably might
    make him fail the backround check


    Maybe Ben is just getting tired of being called a metrosexual....

    Did the Sheriff mean a carry permit?

    I s'pose he could apply in Cal, or in Mass, or NY or NJ... don't need 'em in Georgia, do you? People do get some odd ideas shoved at 'em in California (yes, I've lived there).

    Was he (or even better, were they) applying for a concealed carry permit, maybe? Or accustomed to going to the courthouse for anything to do with guns, rather than just going to any store for hunting licenses, and then not telling the press that they'd actually shoot defenseless little tweety-birds?

    Best-case scenario:

    Maybe they were getting carry permits and hunting licenses, buying some new shotguns and pistols, and then goin' huntin' after a few rounds of claybirds to warm up. Their careers are centered in L.A. & Hollyweird, so they might want to keep it all kinda private...

    Hey, I'm an optimist.

    The real problem with hunting skeet is the darn weigh-ins. Not only do you have to scramble around all that red Georgia clay picking up pieces of the dearly departed skeet but then you have to reassemble them to make sure you don't go over the bag limit. I think the Ben-Lo's should take up a new hobby....like learning to act.
