Thanks for the suggestions, Vince and Jer, but I'm really not in the market for a gun; I just wanted an excuse to post something in this thread. I'll limit my shooting to shooting hoops.
(Someday, I'd like to see in how many different threads I can legitimately post with a single carefully-composed photo! I've got a little list going, and it will be easy to pose a pic relevant to a dozen threads; I'll bet with a bit of thought, I can hit 20, at least.)
That's pretty impressive, Dave; I can only dunk in my sweetest dreams!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:
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.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.
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.Is that a Stevens Favorite? Nice looking rifle
How foolish do you think I am, Dave?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.
That made me laugh!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.
I believe Ruger is coming out with a single action .22 LR revolver which retails for $250-- which means you can get it for about $200. Just a little more than a good knife. You oughta pick one up and go plinking. You have shooting ranges in Michigan, don't you? I hear Ted Nugent is from Michigan, and he shoots a lot. Lots of fun, Gary, and .22 anmo is cheap.
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.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

That would be awesome to watch (or participate in)!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
