    Come join the newest advocacy group in the US.

    We are PETP(Pronounced Pet Pee). That's People for the Ethical Treatment of Pumpguns.

    We have vowed to rescue all those poor, innocent pumpguns left languishing in pawn and gun shops, or just relegated to the back of a closet, neglected, abused and ignored.

    This inhuman treatmant has to stop.

    If you know or have a pumpgun that needs loving care and exercise in the clean fresh air of a range, salt marsh or upland area to blossom, send it to a PETP member.

    Thanks, and no animals were killed in the posting of this thread, darn it....

    Alas, I have only one pump shotgun.

    I'd be willing to adopt any others in need of good homes, though. :D

    But, they have no panache. Hollywood elites shoot sporting clays with high dollar over and unders. The English stick to their side by sides, sidelock preferable, look down they're nose at a lowly box lock. Prolly Spanish built crap. At best, you'll find a lesser paid cast member at a Hollywood shoot.with an autoloader, preferably Italian. Nobody buys pump guns but REDNECKS! They sell 'em at WAL MART fer gosh sake! You can't even own one if you don't drive a pick up that's at least 15 years old an' you got all yer teeth and you didn't have wheels to take off your house when you moved in!


    But, I sorta like mine. :D

    What I want to know is, when will PETP be offering a 12-step program? Or do we have to start another organization for that- Pumpguns Anonymous maybe?

    Meetings cut into shopping, sneaking them in, fondling and going "ahh" time.

    No formal meetings - just meetin' up to shoot 'em I say.

    As long as we're going down the route of anthropomorphism...

    Can I volunteer to run a shelter for the geriatric population?

    ...only if you didn't use the mat hangers at the car wash to clamp your 870 into to use the foaming brush and spray wand afterwards...

    Does anyone else think that PETP sounds a lot like a military term? Kind of like BRAS(S), SPORTS, OCOKA, METT-T, etc...

    What else could it mean?

    P - point
    E - end
    T - towards
    P - perp


    P - pump
    E - energetically
    T - to
    P - pacify

    Trapper - mine is not from a Military Acronym.

    Actually I aced Geometry.

    I did a great job of proving why there is NO Angle- Side- Side Theorem.

    Hey, allowed me stand up at the blackboard with the young good looking brunette in mini-skirt teacher too.

    She was MY assistant, assisting with them blackboard protractors and Compass...

    She was impressed with my drawing a skeet field using that big protractor too...big protractor just perfect for that. Me showing Miss P all about skeet, explaining everything...

    Got her daddy to bring her out , showed up with a Model 12. Ahh...daddy could shoot, game and such, never had shot clays. He picked right up with busting clays... I was doing a real good job of giving instructions to my teacher.

    10th grade...

    I really paid attention in that class and aced it - yep sure did. :)

    She taught me Geometry - I shared shotguns and shooting with Miss P and her daddy.

    This is one of your 'best', Dr. McC.

    Nice to see this kind of humor in shotguns. Hear hear.

    Do we have a source for bumper stickers & t-shirts, yet?

    PETP isn't radical enough for me. I belong to the ALF (the All-gauge Libertation Front). I commend the people of PETP and I'm thankful for their support. Not all of us can take direct action against the oppressors. I vow never to rest while a single quality shotgun remains chained to a rack!

    While there is currently no 12-step program...PETP DOES offer an 8-round program. (Plus one in the pipe!)

    Thanks for the responses. A couple things...

    sm, I've been an Admirer of Single Shots for a long time. Perhaps all my adult life.

    H, only if you had a push pole anyway.

    El Barto, you can join. You've taken the first step on a slippery but delightful slope.

    MC, working class roots are not something to be ashamed of. (Yeah, I ended a sentence with a preposition) I know that like NASCAR, Pro Wrestling and making 'shine, collecting and using pumpguns reeks of rural proletarians.

    But even Mike McIntosh, who smoke a pipe, has leather patches on the elbows of his Harris Tweed coats and owns many SxS with famous names on them, likes and uses pumps. His peaen to the Model 12 is a classic. He likes 870s too.

    Medgrl, keep your eyes open, You can handle a 12 gauge fine. Your Cinderella 870 will come.

    TR, Thanks for the acronyms. And the chuckles.

    Lee, 12 step programs depend on the person wanting to be cured. No way...

    Nema, Wife is too busy these days to do shirts, but mayhap Daughter will run off some PETP buttons to pin to shooting vests, range bags etc. Will advise.

    Now, we need a couple supermodels to pose scantily clad in the ads to publicise our "I'd rather shoot nekkid than not shoot my pumpguns" campaign......
