Machinegunnery and stick-fighting.
So, me and my shooting buddies went to a Machine-gun shoot today, which was fun. Lots of explosions, lots of machine-gunnery, some WWII reenactors and a couple of bowling ball mortars. Fun.
I rode to the even with my unnamed shooting buddy (USB) and his wife, which proved to be extremely entertaining for all. My USB's wife said several very funny things throughout the course of the day, which I will now relay. If you don't find them funny, too bad.
1. Evidently, USB once spanked his wife on the bottom because she randomly cracked him across the back of his legs with a stick while they were walking the dog.
2. Evidently, USB and his wife have a long standing argument about whether or not cows have knees. It turns out they do.
3. USB's wife calls all soda "coke". In doing so, AT pointed at his Pepsi and slowly said "peeeeepppppssssiiiii". The following conversation ensued.
USBW Where I'm from we call everything Coke, even lemonade.
Me: Really? So you take a shower in hot Coke? Do you go swimming in Lake McCokeahay?
USBW: No, not like that. We call only fluids coke.
Me: Water is a fluid.
USBW: No, only fluids you drink.
Me: You can drink water.
I also got to see one of the most anticipated new guns of the year in prototype form today, the Magpul Masada. Bushmaster is going to be manufacturing them under the name "ACR", but Magpul designed it, and they had a working prototype. It was cool, but I think it is going to be a little to expensive for me.
In general, it was a fun Saturday.
