    A lot of things make a lot more sense now.

    My grandmother would pay me a penny a grasshopper and a dime per sparrow that I would kill in her garden.

    I spent countless hours after my chores were finished hunting with my daisy pump.

    Of course I could have just killed the grasshoppers with a stick but that wasn't nearly as much fun.

    Each time grandpa took me to town I would get a pop a candy bar and the rest of my loot was spent on bbs.

    My dad and I would go for a haircut every Saturday and I would get spending money to entertain myself after my cut was done while my dad went through the rest of the barbershop's services available (shave etc). This money was always enough for a new supply of pellets/co2 and some other treats on top :tooth:

    No it hasn't... And there's a small steady stream of drool coming out of the corner of your mouth...

    As the years go by I fondly remember... shooting birds with my Grandfathers Remington 22 pump (bird shot) keeping my Grandmothers peach trees safe.
    Watching my grandfather shooting his 38-40 Colt empty a can by hitting it at the bottom edge without knocking it over.

    Wished I had good memories with my Dad but that's a whole different story.

    We used to take our .22s and head out on bicycles to the city dump where we would spend hours shooting rats. Often the local cop would show up and join us with the big old single action Colt he carried as a duty weapon...we all got the opportunity to crank off a couple of rounds with his "hog leg"... Times sure have changed...

    I made my spending money by shooting Jack Rabbits and selling the carcasses at the Feed & Grain for a quarter apiece. Two rabbits bought a full box of 50 rounds...after that, everything was pure profit...if you happened to run across a coyote, you could take the scalp (with both ears attached) down to the city clerks office and turn them in for the $5.00 bounty..what a windfall for a kid...

    Saturday afternoons in the winter several of us would load up our pickups and head out on the back roads ( in the pancake-flat Texas Panhandle) looking for Jack Rabbits.

    Both windows down, heater on full blast, laughing about the football game we played Friday night and reducing the coyote food density.

    Or the time my brother and a friend and I went Prairie Dog hunting. We each bought 500 rounds of .22 LRHP's (about a penny per round) and stood in back of pickup shooting over the cab until all in range (200 paces) were dead or hid, then drove a quarter mile and repeated.

    Burned through most of that ammo and made believers out of a lot of 'dogs.
