And what were the circumstances?
I shot a man in Reno.
I shot him just to watch him die
They got very, very wet.
If you made the hair darker and took the glasses off, that kid is literally me as a ten year old. Spooky. I never had an arsenal that big though.
What Super Soaker did you have?
Laserquest the other week.
first time I was working in Utah and a guy I was friends with couldn't believe I'd never fired a gun. So we went out to this deserted bit of land and shot a few rifles. Was ok. Bit strange that he brought his 8 year old daughter along. ''she only gets to use the .22 since she's small''.
Best part was getting a shot of his .44 magnum (the dirty harry gun). Jesus, that thing had a kick on it.
when we were there, these rednecks showed up. They pulled an old tv out of their car, set it down on a rock and then started shooting it.
fucking Utah, lol.
After that 7-1 defeat to Colchester, Big Bryan had to go.
have stored away in your memory. How many taboos can be included in one sentence.
*slowly walks away.
I was about 16. I can't say I enjoyed it much. I was scared someone there would go crazy and start shooting people instead of the targets.
Made a hasty exit when the live targets (cows) were made available however.
Apparently the owner of the range had an anti tank gun they could fire if they wanted, but they couldn't afford it
to come over all Michael Moore (ugh), but I'm so glad we don't have gun laws like the US.
and to feel what it was like.
I wasnt brilliant or anything, but I liked the Walther P38 the most
Shotgun with a low powered shot or something at clay pigeons.
Both times on stag dos. Neither experience made me want to have anything to do with guns.
South West Rhyl
clay-pigeon shooting. hit the first one, missed on about the next five or six. the instructor guy was a braying twat of the highest order.
He took me and my brother out to shoot at cans. I didn't hit any. The kick back hurt my shoulder.
also clay shooting, with an olympic champ, no less!
at a shooting range at the Cu Chi Tunnels, Vietnam.
Did you have the tour guide that said 'kiss me' instead of 'excuse me'?
no we had one who fought with the Americans in the war and was rather unhappy about having been left behind by them. He kept singing Beatles songs and never, ever shut up.
boring way of spending an afternoon. Anyone who gets a hard-on by holding a gun is clearly a mad bastard. That's all I got out of that afternoon. As well as being £40 down.
I'd probably vote 'yes'. I've never fired a gun but they're pretty cool aren't they? Might be nice to have a .45 revolver at home just to hold sometimes. Bullets would cost £100 each though if you wanted to take them home, we don't want any mad buggers running round loaded down with ammo.
once on a stag do and once at a charity event.
That's probably not the sort of thing you're after though.
I live about five miles from a gun club, whenever I pass it I wonder how much it would cost to do some target shooting or something - then I forget about five minutes later and never look it up.
As for the circumstances, I'd rather not say.
i got to shoot one bullet, not to kill anything. Dont really agree with that.
A pellet gun, trying to aim at things off my last balcony a few years ago :/ i hit a balloon from over a building!
My favourite... the spud gun, i wasn't without one as a child.
and ate it as well.
Fired all sorts, a few times a week for about 5 years.
Mainly I was firing the SA80, no.8 rifle and several various types of shotguns. Last week I got the opportunity to fire live UGL (Underslung Grenade Launcher) rounds in Cyprus which was pretty awesome.
