  O0 O0 O0 O0 I like that one you do, the float and raise a garbage truck or bus and then drop it on the bad guy!

When you raised and dropped Mt. McKinley on top of that one bad guy, that was beyond spectacular! Talk about being STOMPED!  :wink: ;D

If C.N. gets to use fly swatter, BC has to add nerf gun to the list ( search "boredom at it's finest" )

I made some pretty good deer one shot kills with an issued S&W Model 65 .38SP while on duty. The kills were crippleed deer hobbling around at a distance of 30+  yards at night while I was using a flashlight. The ammo was military issued ball ammo. It was not a choice but was all we were issued and allowed to carry.

One shot was a big buck I brought down at a distance of about 70 or so yards, with the hunter alongside of me. He was bowhunting on the installation and hit the big buck with his pickup truck when season ended that night.

I was dispatched to the area with him to shoot the deer that had a broken leg and was moving off to seek shelter.

As he watched, I hefted the Maglite over my pistol and squeezed the trigger. The deer, much to my surprise, dropped stone dead in his tracks!  :roll: The hunter was astounded said it was the greatest shot he had ever seen and did not realize how plain lucky I felt.  ;D

I calmly holstered my pistol and we proceeded to the deer. I didn't let on that I was more astounded than he was and acted like the shot was a ho-hum everyday event.  :roll: ;D The hunter raved about the shot at HQ and to the guys at the exit gate when he left.  ;D ;D ;D
