So.........today a big 18 wheeler shows up at my house, backs down my driveway to my loading dock and drops off a package. I am there with my forklift to move the box dropped off. I had trouble picking it up and balancing it on the one fork, but after several tries I was able to do so. I carefully moved the package from the loading dock into the house.............

And then............did it bite you, or just mark it's territory?

You really didn't let it out of the cage yet.....did you?

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

I'm at work now but when I left it was still rattling around in the box. I'm afraid to open it. I think it might go after my dogs.

Well, that blows my guess. I was thinking ammo.

Great shooting for an out of the box firearm, looks like it stays on target really good. My Stoeger Cougar 40 is really good at staying on target like that, on the other hand my XDm40 had a pattern on a target that looked more like I had shot the target with 12 ga. buckshot.
