  •  As a Kid I Loved Target Shooting (6+ / 0-)

    I came to understand the touch required on a 22 rifle to pull the trigger without jerking the barrel off sight. Got my merit badge. Never shot at an animal. But always felt like if you hunted, and take an animal's life, and then you (or someone else) eats it, it's no different than picking up a pack of meat from the butcher -- and in fact more real.

    I also think I understand the kick that shooting off a military or police grade weapon might offer, even though I've not served in the armed forces, nor have I even touched a rifle of this sort, nor even a handgun. But, would I like to drive a Ferrari at 125 mph around the streets of San Francisco? Sure, and I'd like to shoot the overly-bright billboards along US101 with an AR-15, or better still an RPG launcher.
