    Re: What did it for you?

    I was born with a love for things that fly! Started with chucking rocks, then to sling shots, bows, potato cannons, guns of any kind, I nearly took my head off with a boomerang a few times as a kid. The joy of actually hitting anything was more slowly acquired. Nasa had a lot to do with it, the Mercury program was awesome. Taking the fuel tanks out of a satellite, or hitting Jupiter has to rank up there with the greatest shots. One Antelope trip in Nevada the high point of the trip was watching the amateur rocket guys on the Black Rock Desert launch. Way cool, they've even put one in space. So I've grown to love the precision of all of it. As far as shooting critters I prefer slamming a big animal up close with a heavy caliber over taking one long, but try to be ready for both.
    Goals? If they still let us retire down the road, my retirement project will either be a homemade rocket, or trying to set the world record for a Pumpkin Gun.

    My interest in LRH is for discussions of ballistics, firearms, and potentially useful survival skills. I haven't killed anything with a firearm in over 40 years. I enjoy long range target shooting but haven't considered killing a sport since spending a year in southeast Asia in the US Army.
