Excellent, Tack.

Recall that in the Planet of the Apes they used monkey scarecrows... apes stretched out on X shaped crosses, warning the others away....



'jus sayin'....

I don't know which is better, a Johan Story or a Dark Helmet poop/raccoon story.

ISTG, I'm in tears right now...

I cannot live with the guilt....

I have been paying my Mother in Law to raise racoons and have them shipped to your house......

This thread is pure comedic gold! :D Movie material right here, cousin Eddie type character (from the Vacation series) in an epic struggle against racoons...pink stocked 10/22, in boxers late at night outside, throw in a few poop scenes...it's all over! LMFAO!

What you need is a bigger, more dangerous animal to take care of the racoons. Then another, yet again more dangerous animal to take care of that animal. I've only worked it out to that stage so far.

Poisonous lizards. Then lizard eating snakes. Then snake eating gorillas, which are much easier to capture?

Infect the snakes with a disease that only kills that type of snake. Gorillas are much too close to humans for comfort

Old question, I know... but to answer it, I have used a CMMG conversion in my Sig516 and it runs like a champ! The Stainless steel one is easier to keep clean and I prefer CMMG Mags over the Black Dogs as the lip on one of the BDs shattered and chipped. Rare, I know, but don't want to deal with it again.

The issue I have at home is quail. They get into the garage rafters and shit on my bikes. Nothing my pellet gun can't fix though.

Lee, try the Aguila .22 Colibri rounds. They've got no powder, just a larger primer charge. Very quiet. They won't rack the bolt, so it makes it a single fire operation, but then you also don't have to go looking for .22 shells after each shot either.

Are they like BB caps? I used these to kill Doves in my front yard in Suburbia.

Big Daddy,

You know I love you like a son, I would kill to make your life just an ounce happier, I would sacrifice Sharky's life (and throw in SOTB's) to give you 30 seconds of laughter,

But DAMN if that commcercial in this thread was not funny as HELL..
Sorry, back to my lane, hijack over, FWIW, etc.

Used to shoot "mini caps" outta an old Winchester Model 06 .22 pump by the truckload. Shoot 'em right in the back yard, and NEVER had a complaint from any of the neighbors. Hell, they never even knew we were shooting. They hit harder than a pellet, but less than a .22 LR.

That video was made with Tack in mind, 100%.
