Every year about this time, after hunting seasons have closed down and the sometimes frigid weather makes TV show sponsors happy as gophers on a golf course, we turn to just about the only available option: target practice. It’s something we do. Like cautiously mentioning to “the little woman” (whatever that is) that, instead of going out for dinner on weekends, you’d prefer a cozy night at home – just the two of you – watching NBA games, despite the fact that she absolutely HATES sports unless it’s the grandkids who are playing and she’d really prefer that you both go sit in a sweat-stinking school gym watching other kids bounding up and down the bleachers spilling soda and popcorn in all directions, despite the signs that say “No food or drink allowed” inside the gym.
Or…that other option.
Target practice, so-called, is often left to the sound of gunfire addicts who have to be told by others to put their “ears” on before squeezing juice out of a trigger. While that’s not as uncommon as one might think, it is just one of the many variations you’ll run into as you grab your gear and holler “Guns Up!” as you head for the door. Some examples are just ahead in this week’s…
