Never get comfortable

    Chad emailed in these photos from a recent hunting trip …

    I went pig hunting this morning (didn’t see any) but found some bones from a large mammal, cow or horse. I was carrying my Taurus model 66 with a 6 inch barrel loaded with CCI Blazer 158 grain jacketed hollow points.

    I backed off about 10 feet and shot the bone. The attached pictures are the results. Entrance and exit wound.

    Shooting is my hobby and as we all do I get comfortable. This is a reminder that these things are not toys.

    Never get comfortable.

    My fifth blog post on The Firearm Blog (back in 2007!) was on this very topic. It seems like a lifetime ago.
