Foul Shot

In a 0.75-hearted effort to learn a better hunting method, I've been shooting a recurve bow in my extra-deep garage this winter. My target is a birdseed sack stuffed with an old pillow and discarded rags. Been shooting at those little birds: cardinal, chickadee, goldfinch. Not very good yet, but until tonight, even the worst shots had not missed the feed sack. And the picture below isn't really a "miss" but more of a foul. The angle of the bow wasn't enough it seems, and just as I let loose, the arrow fell off the rest. The result was a wild shot to the left.

But it drove clean through. I stared at this scene for a good minute or so.

that 158gr cast bullet went through two curved sheets of 1/4" steel, 12 inches of compressed newspaper, an interior wall, a trash can full of dog chow, an exterior wall and ultimately pancaked on the foundation.

i patched the drywall, duct taped the dog food container. a gunsmith freed the cylinder and gave me the look.

thought i had skated...then one day we ran out dog food. my lovely spouse discovered my obfuscations and...
