Going by the accent, it’s likely he grew up somewhere that guns only showed up in the movies. This would be the equivalent to seeing activated time bombs for sale in an airport for him.
I hope they’re competent although I have my doubts sometimes.
My brother hunts and a few years back, a friend of his shot a pig in some bushes at a hunting ground. Unfortunately, it wasn’t a pig but another friend who was playing a practical joke, hiding in the bushes and grunting.
He lived after some surgeries, but it blew one asscheek off and he needs a colostomy bag now.
Otherwise, he’s in good spirits. The guy that did the shooting left town out of embarrassment, although nobody seemed to criticize him, as hiding in the bushes grunting like a wild boar wasn’t very bright, although neither was shooting without seeing the target.
Anything beyond hunting rifle gives me the willies, especially if the person showing it off is grinning like a kid who just got [insert latest gaming console]. If someone pulls out a handgun to show it off, I don’t like being in the room for long and anything that’s not hunting rifle-like, I do much the same, especially if ppl are drinking/smoking. I want no part of it.
I guess… anything with a clip is too much. If you’re hunting, what do you need a clip for?
