Some one in our group o' 5 er so freinds come up with a starter pistol. WElll, someone had the bright idea, probably me, to dril it out and make a 'real' gun out of it. So, we got us a drill, drilled out the Bbl and confidently loaded er up with 5 .22 LR's After one of us worked up the nerve to try it out, it did not go off. Soooo, of course confidence levels soared. Mmm..or was it stupidity soared lol Anywho, we carried that thing around for weeks takin turns jist walkin around pullin the trigger. We aimed that thing at everything, and everyone we encountered and jist a kept pullin that trigger. ( Who payed attention to a kid with a 'toy' gun in the early sixties? ) One night, a big ole bread truck drove by and of course it imediately became a target of opportunity. Can't recall who had in thier posession at the time but i recall that on the 2nd trigger pull that thing finaly went off. Or should i say, it finaly exploded Luckily it did explode into a jillion pieces and none of them, or the bullet hit that truck or the driver sittin in the open door. The driver , nor anyone else was the wiser. 'magine somethin like that in today's world. I did pay big time for it tho in the long run. My best buddy, my dog that grew up with me was hit and killed later that night by a car whle chasin a rabbit 'cross that very same road.
