Happy US Independence Day
The United States is celebrating another 4th of July. Thank God we live in such a great country, eh? No fireworks for me this time. (Which is saddening, I usually blow $50-$100 in fireworks. I love fireworks.) However I did get to celebrate the holiday with nice booming noises. Our activities consisted of guns and beer, what my cousin Matthew called a "regular redneck holiday." It was a hell of a lot of fun. We shot .22's at some little targets, which is entertaining, especially since I was in high school the last time I shot a .22. And then we shot trap with 12-gauge shotguns. I have never fired a shotgun in my life. They didn't kick half as bad as everybody says they do. It was a blast. I even managed to hit some of the pidgeons. I have learned that "long range" ammo is much much louder and kicks quite a bit harder than the regular sportshot. I'm thinking I need a shotgun now. Matthew's got this break-action over and under model that fires one barrel then the other. It was probably more accurate, but I think my cousin Andy's gun was more fun (so long as it fed right and actually fired, it was rather old and the firing pin spring was kind of weak). It was a basic pump-action job. But pumping that gun and blowing several shells at the clay was awesome. There's rumblings of doing it more often, something I would be happy to get in on. I hope all you Americans enjoy the holiday with the "rocket's red glare" and "bombs bursting in air." For those of you who aren't American--uh, try to have some fun too. Just like everybody's Irish on Saint Patrick's, everybody's American on the 4th of July.
