Headed to the range.
« on: March 06, 2021, 08:18:34 AM »
My wife gave me a really nice dulling tree for Christmas and I am headed out to set it up today. Great weather and haven’t been to my property for over a month.  The sad part I had to think how much ammo I would take to shoot making sure I have enough ammo to get me through the summer   Never before have I given it a thought.  I am good this year and hoping things brake before next year.    Glad to be out.  Lunch over a open fire is also on the agenda.

Well, at least you can't cut yourself on a dulling tree.

You could practice shooting gunfighter style and see which hand wins.   :)

I'm pretty sure I've used axes that were used to cut dulling trees before I got to them...........

We have plenty of dulling trees around here, I think somebody must try and use my chainsaw on them, when I'm not around.

Thanks John for being a good friend. But I am very capable of misspelling any word on any given day.  The sad thing I proofed it before I sent it.   Better news my ax is still sharp and spent the day with two good friends.  Trying to get one of them to join us in June. A young Major stationed at Leavenworth. Will see with his job and family.

Would that be a dollop of dullards?

I've always heard you're more likely to cut yourself with a dull tree than a sharp one because you tend to force it.

..ha,that sounds like an old pocketknife I have. Been used for any awful thing you can imagine.  Friend gave it to me eons ago, he passed away a few years back. You can sharpen it and soon as you fold it up it's dull again. Once told someone that borrowed it to be careful, "you have a better chance catching something from it than getting cut by it".

Yes.  "The Chaplain took our baby ducks away!"  and "Only here can you dress in authentic, 19th Century uniforms and discuss classic Bugs Bunny cartoons!" are two of my favorites.

I've tried from time to time to hold it in. All that really happens is that it builds up inside me until it explodes all over everything close, kind of like smart-A$$ shrapnel!  :o

....."with a feather"!

Just like when I would get a new trainee at my old job. I always cautioned them, "don't yell out HEY DUMBASS". We couldn't afford to lose too many people from neck strain when they jerked their head around to see if it was them!
