using Iver Johnson .22 revolver

age 17, I'd shortened the barrel with hacksaw, file and square. No idea how I mounted the front sight. The 6" was too long for me to conceal adequately. I carried the 4" version upside down across the front of my pants, IWB naturally. under a hung out shirttail. It wasn't capable of reliably hitting a bushel basket at 50 yds, but I shot at a bluejay at that distance anyway, HIT him, too, definitely his day to die.

Killing random animals just to see them die - check.

John, most of us (me included) did stupid, destructive, and even mean crap when we were adolescents. But it's a sign of maturity that we actually regret it when we develop some wisdom and perspective that encompasses something more than our own childish "step on the ant" impulses.

Negative attention thing; do something a normal person would be ashamed of just to get some kind reaction. Really boring. Kind of a stupid stunt a ten year old would do with a BB gun.

I took a lot of critters with that gun, just cause I had it with me a lot and spent a lot of time walking/driving areas that I knew had lots of game. Most of the hits were sub 15 yds, tho. The first pistol I had with REAL accuracy was the savage M101. It let me reliably hit starlings at 25 yds, from the Weaver

You really don't get it, do you? Shooting something just to watch it die is not really normal behavior. How long have you been twisted? Mommy not wuv you enough?
