It is not even safe on a military installation. Soldier hit by friendly fire.

It happens. Glad we don't allow rifle hunting for deer or whatever in Illinois. Bullets travel to far.

Although last week a gentlemen was watching T.V. here in Clay City, IL. and just before dark and a deer slug came through his living room wall and landed next to his recliner.

Another soldier was severely wounded by a ceremonial cannon blast at a Generals game 6 months ago. It`s almost safer "downrange".

That slug could have put a hole in his Milwaukee`s Best Ice tall boy can! That`s too close for comfort!

The drink of choice for we homeless individuals. Been at the library all day looking for work online. I`m holding out for a management position. Back to my sealy posturepedic at the Open Door. Still stuffed from dinner. That Craft`s macaroni and cheese really sticks to the ribs.
