(Don't forget about the contest!)
So I went skeet shooting with Sir and some friends on Wednesday night. The gun I used last week, a 12-gauge o/u Stoeger, was available, so I rented it. When the lady handed it to me, I noticed she had to tighten the forestock (or whatever it's called).
Well, took my first shot, went to reload, and suddenly had three pieces of a shotgun in my hand. LOL
The range officer said, "Um, I think you should go get another gun."
Well, unfortunately, they didn't have any other 12-gauge o/us. They only had 20-gauge (I'd already bought three boxes of 12-gauge shells and opened the first box) or pump-action.
So I had to share Sir's gun (also a rental) that I wasn't fond of.
By the time we hit the third station, a guy comes rolling up in a golf cart and calls to me. Voila! A little electrical tape later...
Sir looked at me and said, "You're not seriously going to shoot that, are you?"
Being the good little redneck I am, I said, "Watch me." It was worth it to watch His eye twitch. LOL (I figured they wouldn't bring it back out if it wasn't safe to shoot. Cosmetically challenged isn't dangerous. LOL)
The only thing better would have been if they'd used Hello Kitty duct tape on it. LOL
Yes, I shot it for three rounds. Good ole' redneck engineering never let me down yet. LOL
Everyone has to have stories from their life about someone...eh, modifying or repairing something on-the-fly (but not exactly to manufacturers' standards LOL) to make it work/last/hold out a few more miles/get by until payday. What are your stories? (No, they don't have to be firearm related. LOL)
