I've mentioned before how much I enjoy Top Shot on History Channel and now they have a "spin-off" of sorts called Top Guns which I have really enjoyed as well. Thing is, they make me want to try some of these things. Like...I bought a throwing knife. Yes, I did. And some days I'm pretty good with it (when I first typed that it came out 'goof with it' which may have been what I truly intended) but mostly it's just a lot of excercise of me walking around to pick up my knife that missed the board.
I proved a little better with the shotgun; I had never fired one though I have fired pistols and rifles. My brother decided to show me how to fire the shotgun and we set up a little range of cans. He grabbed the most ancient double-barreled shotgun I think I've ever seen; it said "Hercules" on the side of the barrel and has battle scars all over both sides.
Do these triggers look sketchy to you? They did to me. He even convinced me to fire both barrels at once saying, "Don't be a wimp; it's fine." NO IT WAS NOT FINE. And he thought it was hilarious the twerp.
However I did manage to hit my target.
Have you been inspired to try anything new lately?
