  •  Where I grew up hunting was a part of manhood (8+ / 0-)

    But the first time I killed an animal, I didn't feel proud, I felt ashamed. Although I continued to hunt, I never killed again. Instead of leading the bird or rabbit I always shot behind. I missed every time. My friends teased me about being the worst shot that ever lived. I gave up going through the motions of hunting when I became old enough not to care what people thought. I am not ashamed of not liking to kill anymore.

    Conservatives want to shrink the size of government until it will fit in a vagina.

      Same here. Single shot .22 out by the river. Shot a bird because I could. Never fired at an animal again.

      I did however provide my pilots with all the ammo they could use.  I don't feel proud about that either.
