Can I bring my pellet gun?
Never hit anything with it either.

Oh, and I have a Masai spear.

Tom,
Have you determined the shooting distance? That's all I really need, I don't care about the format or rules. Well I guess that's not entirely true, I also need to know whether or not I need an opener for the beer I'm going to win. It's on like Donkey Kong.

Place: OK Corral in Osoyoos Campground.... Time: Just after the wine tour returns


Better practice up lads and ladies as I'm a dead eye and I'm going to be drinking your beer! Yarrrrrrrr

Well, this just went from a friendly banter thread, to all out war.
Let's git it on.

Off course I want to use my Wrist Rocket, haven't even tried this new fangled one yet.

My brother and me used to have wars. I gave him the slingshot, and I got the BB gun. No shooting at the face allowed.
The slingshot could actually do way more damage. The BB gun could not break skin, but boy did it leave a good welt.

We held gladiator wars in the alley behind the house. Ammo was big American Black Walnuts at twenty paces. Protection was a garbage can lid. You could protect your head, neck and chest at the expense of no protection to important features of the lower body. I'm disfigured but have three great kids.

This sounds good to me. The more time Dave spends practicing for these gladiator wars in Ossoyos, the less time he will have to practice with his torque wrench!

Keep coming up with more and more contests for him to practice at!

Right on! Gladiator wars in Osoyoos, with Dave as the target.
For sport, he could just use the lid to a compost bucket, rather than one from a garbage can.

He says he is disfigured from the old days anyway, so maybe the new damage will be unnoticeable!

Plus, he does already have 3 great kids, so no worries there either!

Could you maybe aim for his torque wrench arm?
