Understood. May try this myself this weekend.
Now there's a rockin' GP 100 and a Stainless Gordo. Cool that she competes.
Up for a little one on one Gary? I might have a distinct height advantage though. I don't even have to jump to dunk:
I prefer "tactician".
Is that a Stevens Favorite? Nice looking rifle
It's what Capt. Kirk would have done.
What re program the simulator never!
OK maybe a little. No height advantage then, one on one with my daughter. She's only 5' 2". $20 on Alyssa.
She has played a little competitive ball though.
Gun and knife content...
That's pretty impressive, Dave; I can only dunk in my sweetest dreams!
I'm kind of scrawny, but I don't mind taking my defender down low and banging around a little bit to get position, but I doubt if I'd be able to push you and your horse around very much. I think that's one of the reasons that the group I play with twice a week has banned centaurs from our games.
I once read a short story about guys playing a baseball game on horseback, and maybe a guy shot the ball with his revolver at the climactic play of the game, but I can't seem to find a mention of it online. Might have been written by Zane Grey, who played some college and minor league baseball.
If you aren't cheating then you aren't trying.
Up until very recently some of the country schools had donkey basketball games. Every player was mounted on a rubber shoe wearing donkey. Great entertainment.
It is, from the B prefix run so 1972-75. It's spent a lot of hours out in the woods with me. Shot a flying grouse through the back of the head with it once. I'd keep cartridges between the fingers on my left hand and the falling block can be surprisingly quick for a single shot.
How foolish do you think I am, Dave?
I'm not playing a guy's daughter within a week of Father's Day; way too much motivation/incentive for her!
But if we can agree on a date, how about these ground rules?
- Game to 21, 2s and 3s; Alyssa can choose ball and 3-point line (men's vs. women's)
- Make it, take it; gotta take ball back to 3-point line on made baskets, change of possession, or out of bounds
- Call your own fouls
Oh, yeah, since in my neck of the woods they say you can't teach height, we usually give 1 point per inch of height difference to the shorter player. Alyssa is 5'2" and I'm about 5'10" (and shrinking ), so let's give her 8 points.
But they also say you can't teach youth, so we typically give 1 point per year of age difference to the older player. I'm 67, so unless Alyssa is older than 38, I'll have over 21 before we even start, so you can just send me that Jackson at your convenience, Dave!
Can I enter my son in the basketball tournament too?
He's just a band nerd, so you all shouldn't be too concerned.
He's 6'5", 300 lbs, and could probably box-out Dave's horse.
That made me laugh!
But what about staying on topic for the thread? What knives/guns would be sanctioned for one-on-one hoops?
This was news to me until I saw your post. I have a Single Six from my Grandpa made in 1969, and a Super Bearcat from 72?? I think. Also and Single Six convertible from the early 80’s. Thought I had enough .22’s until I started looking at the Wrangler. May be room for one to leave in the truck
May have to get one myself. Had a Dan Wesson .22 revolver, six-inch barrel. Lot of fun. It was stolen! And ammo is so cheap, compared to .38 Special, .357 Magnum, or .45 ACP.
I remember when I was in school the Fire Dept. vs The Police Dept. at Donkey Baseball. Hit the ball, mount up and ride around the bases. Sold out game every year.
Also "The King & His Court" four man softball team against a nine man team of locals. The Pitcher stood at second base, a catcher, first baseman, and an out fielder.
That would be awesome to watch (or participate in)!
