I've been called about everything at one time or another but it usually has to do with me being a stupid redneck, hillbilly, or the like. I guess it's a lot my fault though. I do live in a place well known for their dumb hillbillys. I do own a good bit of camo and OD green stuff. THat olive drab green happens to be a color I'm very fond of. Even when I was a city slicker. The camo is just a habit form when I still hunted a lot. But just tell me, what is a more useful or more comfortable coat than those M60 jackets???
My Ohio friends call me a hillbilly while the family here in Ky call me a"citified buckeye". On the net I'm a right wingnut hillbilly usually. Sometimes a clan member, I find that one more than a little odd as I have zero racial bias. I think that has to do with where I live though too. It seeems you can not live in the country and not be a bigot in many peoples internet eyes.

I remember that! My boys actually tried that and got damned close, but they were shooting at 20 yards with .22s and only spent maybe an hour at it (it was a cold day as I remember). I took some pics and it was clear that some of the match heads would begin to light but fizzled out. I'll have to find that memory chip with those pics on it. In short, I have no doubt they would have succeeded had they tried a bit longer.

I can't see how anybody would think you are typical! Then again, I have been called a typical Californian. Yeah. Right. As if there is such a thing.

One member on the forum quotes me often. He then uses arcane pyscologal phraese to explaine what I have posted. He is very handy. Sort of like "Teats on a Saddle horse".

I was hit with an uncalled-for insult.
I quoted it, changed my avatar to it, and updated my signature for a while.

Of course, this was not an acknowledgment, but a provocation.

I'm still here, but the other? who knows.

I was raised to deal with things now termed "Politically Correct"

A common rhyme in family upbringing was "Sticks and Stones"

Honestly I wasn't paying attention to which end it was. I just know it didn't smell too pretty.

When you do let me know. I definitely want to see them. The boys were using .22s, were the LR or shorts? the contact time for the LR is not long enough to get good ignition. A slower bullet is needed for the trick.

I think they were using LR but I am not sure. I told them their chances would be better with some .38s in the GP100 or the Blackhawk. More surface area and a slower bullet. But what do I know? I'm only their dad!
