Well some of my cousins came down from Chicago for Thanksgiving and I'm generally pretty anti social but since I spent Thanksgiving with my gf and her family figured I'd say least hi. Well a few hours later we're cling some fish we caught a few minutes ago out the pond about a 3min walk from the stove. My uncle who's cleaning the fish used to live down her still he moved up to Chicago and ...idk it was nice talking to him and the other men folk..all of them where so happy to be her doing stuff like this.

Then we where talking and some of the women folk said they never shot a gun. Well asked if they wanted to and after about 20min of basic stuff the two of them where absolutely in love with shooting grin they where super uneducated about gun in general though. When I mentioned my 10/22 was a semiautomatic just about everyone wanted to jump out their skin thinking it was some assault weapon or something then after I explained it it was all " wait... But the news said .... Well that's actually kinda lame "
But yeah brought out my bolt action trainer and my 10/22 let them run as many round in each with the tripod and they they went from jumping at at sound of a shot to running the bolt and killing cans grin They loved my digital scope though grin should ha e taken more pics but

And my uncle who lives next door just took to it like a duck to water lol. When I mentioned it was night vision he said it's a good thing he's in his 60's , I'll let y'all wonder why lol.

Great stuff Wolfdog.
I think I read that a lot of people from the south moved up north in the 50's for work.

Forget that fear of gravity-get a little savagery in your life.

I'm a little anti social like you, but it seems anytime I let myself open up great things happen! I've tried to teach my kids to be very socially outgoing, and they seem to be, just seems there is so much lost in life to being a hermit!

Glad you decided to be social

You educated a few people on what reality is vs media BS

They will probably go home and spread the word, might not change everyone they talk to but a few will start the wheels turning in their brain

Can't imagine anyone from the country wanting to move to some place like Chicago either confused

Is that a Sightmark Wraith?


Give an illegal alien a fish and he eats for a day. Deport him and you never have to feed him ever again!

good stuff

I got a cousin to realize how ridiculous the anti AR stuff is he and his son tried on deer hunting for the first time this year.
I carried my AR pistol in 300blk while mentoring his son deer hunting


America only has one issue, we have a Responsibility crisis and everything else stems from it.

That brings back memories .

As a kid, I'd get my cane pole and red/white bobber, nightcrawlers, and sit with the "older folks" along the lake shores and catch those bream by the bucketful. Usually, everyone would be invited over to someone's house, and we would scale them and enjoy a cookout , of pan fish, hush puppies, okra , ice tea , sometimes frog legs too. Lots of fun, I enjoyed fishing on the shore with the older ones.

Good deal on teaching those girls how much fun can killin really is. Getting an education at the same time.
