Most *ferriers* in the San Diego area also shoe horses in T.J.s race track. I know they have some big squeeks there... I have talked to them. :)

You forgot to mention how they drugged the horses at Caliente....but the Agua Caliente Racetrack has been closed to horseracing for years...they only do Greyhound races now....bow wow...

Nailed "only" 17 squirrels today. Poor guy. I feel bad for ya. I don't think I've blasted 17 squirrels my entire life. Does that make you feel better? :)

Looks like fun. Yeah, keep it free if you start charging other laws and regulations come into effect.

I remember when I was a kid the ranchers would leave boxes of 22 shells on the fenceposts for us kids to use to shoot varmints. We would ride out of town on our schwinn bikes with our marlin strapped over our sholder and not one round to our name and shoot till dusk any weekend we wanted. As long as we stacked dead Varmints close enough to be seen from where the boxes of ammo were there would be new boxes there the next Saturday Morning. Back in the day Huh? Makes it sound like I am 100 years old. I am 41. Try riding your bike thru town today with a rifle of any type strapped to your back and see how far you would get before you were on the local and national news and the internet. Ha! I dont even want to think of what would happen to the parents. B)
