Lucky chap. The Field arrived Saturday and I'm enjoying second best here, being some virtual shooting.

I've killed a few of those in my time - 8o tonnes of HST doing 90 swats 'em down like flies.

Electro, I imagine you to have been sitting in the cab, feet on the windscreen, Paul Newman-style rollup in the corner of the mouth, with a shotgun sticking out of the window and hosing the birds down with lead to the left and right.

E-T "Swats them down like flies".

Great stuff! Roadkill always goes down a treat. Have fun shooting birds and remember, a bird in the hand should not be the same as having your hand in a bush.

mermaid, I have an old version of that saying which I would happily tell brutes like the Hitch and the Tuscan, but I blush at the thought of saying it to as delicate and innocent a flower as you.

The Hitch said...

Idle , that "delicate flower" threatened to crap on my grave (she used worse language)
Rough shooting is indeed more fun than driven game and better for the heart and lungs.

You threatened to look up her chuff first, Hitch - it seemed like a fair retort to me.

thanks EK! hitch started that. I consider all women to be like learning the topography of a ski slope - it all looks beautiful and soft, but those drifts of snow may contain hard rocks.
