Funny incident from Rimfire threads

Re: .17HMR max range
One of the best shots I ever made was a p-dog at 413 yards with the 17 hmr. Only reason it killed him was because it hit him square in the eyeball and he basically bled to death and couldn't see which way was his hole! But after he died, he caught the attention of a golden eagle which swooped down and tried to eat the dog. I have never run 413 yards so fast in my life! I had to get a picture of that dog and couldn't let that damn eagle take him off. Luckily, he dropped the dog into some sagebrush so I could get a picture.

    413 yards?? I can't believe the little 17 made it. Ya that's a funny one. I can picture the poor guy running and cussing at the eagle.

    I hate to be the jerk, but what the H E double toothpick is going on here! You all know that I shot that vermin last dECEMBER. Really, I swear, but it was not an eagle that swooped down, it was an honest to god fire breathing, camera stealing, dragon........ and he was big!
