Amazing. I feel like I haven't done much of anything today. And I'll tell ya, if it weren't for the skunks, I'd never shoot anything anymore.

*A .410 loaded with #6 shot has become my standard anti-varmint gun. It would be nice to have some kind of .410 repeater, though.

**Easy to do, to get the last microdrops of cologne out of the bottle. Just sit the bottle upright and hold a match over the opening. PHOOPPHH!!! (Best done outside). If I can get it to not smell so much like cologne anymore, I'm going to use it to hold Everclear for cleaning pipes.
