I'd like to go shoot a match someday (soon)!
Since my Glock will shoot underwater, why can't we still have a match? So what if the range is underwater!
The rain yesterday was awesome.
No kidding. Man, I don't want to complain about the rain (especially with 2006 fresh on my mind), but can we at least have a break on the weekends?
I don't care if it's cloudy and drizzing all the time with some downpours. Beats the heat.
In this case it's not the rain that will get you. It's the fire ants.
I really want to go to a 200-yard outdoor range and see if I can shoot my Mosin M44 without bruising myself again, but the rain is making it impossible.
Then, again, it's not the fire ants for me. It's the mosquitoes. But, if they keep getting bigger, they might provide viable moving targets.
I have to think about this a bit...
The Mosquitos are carrying fireants as paratroopers.
I read that in times of flood, the ants form a living floating ball of ants and then raft down the flood till they hit some land and then they swarm out of the water.
I haven't seen the floating ball but I once saw a mass of them floating on the water after a huge rain. It looked like a giant reddish-brown amoeba. I was on the high ground so I took a few minutes to throw rocks into the mass until I sank most of it.
Nasty critters. I think they would make flood rescue just about unbearable.
Yes, the do form both balls and rafts and float along. Two drops of dishwashing liquid on the raft breaks the water tension and the ants sink beneath the surface, and soon return their elements to the environment.
Please don't ask me how I know this.
You know because you are the secret identity of Antman, the Marvel Comics superhero. Don't ask how I know about Antman.
