    Isn't the typical rural practice to fire just one barrel immediately before announcing to the traveling salesman that there is going to BE a wedding and saving the other to ensure he sticks around until the preacher gets there? :D

    I had a rat infested convertable bed sofa in a concrete block shop that none of my employees would go near to haul away. With nobody around and my hearing protection and a griding face shield and a heavy leather long coat, I fired 18 rounds of #6 bird shot at suspected areas of sofa. Some rats came out and were splattered. Didn't check the sofa for bodies, but my employees carried it to dumps after that!They looked a little sheepish! :p

    Off the stern of a 22’ Aquasport while shark fishing.

    BTW, if you ever do this, DO NOT assume that one well placed shot will be enough, and have a camera ready :eek:

    shot a hornets nest hanging on a low branch, stupidest thing Ive ever done.



    I cant for the life of me understand why I did and thought that #7 load would get them in one shot... was kinda chilly so I figured I was safe, afterall, they cant fly when its chilly..wrong!

    I shot the nest..nothing happened.. and about the time I walked over there to inspect the basketball size nest, they started coming outta the new hole in globs.

    On top of the sail of a 688 Class submarine in the Pacific Ocean with nothing in sight. Rules said we had to fire our firearms for familiarization to stay qualified. Didn't say we had to hit anything.

    From inside a old trench coat.

    What?
    I was working at an indoor range we had the opportunity to test out a lot of stuff like this.

    We also tried the office chair with wheel/shotgun propulsion thing.

    It's not so much where I was shooting that was odd, but rather what.
    The family computer, It crapped out anyway but the mom insisted it could be fixed. She wasn't too happy but it made her get a new one :)

    In the attic of an upper flat we rented while first married. Got tired of listening to one particular squirrel between the walls all night long so.....

    it was dispatched with great prejudice.
