Default Stupid things in our youth

My friend and I used to like to sit on the rail road bridge, drink our soda, then throw the can up stream and shoot it with our 22 as it came back twards us. Then one day we thought it would be more fun to throw it the other way, let it get way far out and see who was the best shot. Seemed like a good idea at the time. Couple of things we failed to realize is that when we fired the other way, there were trees on both sides of the bank, and we were shooting more directly into the water, when we turned it around and opened up the distance we hit a point that our little 22 would ricochet off the water and hit our neighbors house...oops! got lucky nobody was hurt

My brother and I were shooting our bows in the yard...looking for a more difficult target to challenge us we decided to try kill a small bird in one of our big oaks...we both missed, and our arrows landed in our neighbors back yard...he did not appreciate it to say the least, and he was my math teacher to boot!

its a wonder I survived, and everyone around me LOL

another good one...my friend and I were out killing sparrows with 22 bird shot...some how we started messing with each other, that stuff never happens ...I told him he crossed the line and he better start running before he feels some bird shot...he took off running knowing I was only kidding but playing along, I wanted to time my shot just right, as to scare the crap out of him, but not hurt him...I rushed my shot just a little as he turned the corner of my house...I had to pick bird shot out of his head and back...my bad!

Been there, done that.


How about rock fights, using trash can lids as shields.

SHTF when somebody got hit in the face, of course...
