Planning a big shooting trip with my brothers for my birthday this weekend. So what do I do three days before the shoot? I turn my left thumb into hamburger with a full power swing of my hammer. I was aiming for the 16penny nail, but hit my thumbnail instead. I was planning on proving to my brother, who is a State trooper, that I could shoot six pop cans with my Vaquero as fast as he could with his duty auto. He is probably going to say I did it on purpose in order to save face. I am pretty sure I could beat him, but it will have to wait for another day.
