Shop Talk

This morning while I work two men sit and wait. One is reading Shotgun News, the other Field & Stream.

The Elmer Fudd (a hunter) with the Field & Stream looks over at the man reading the Shotgun News, then, with a smirk on his face, "Why would anyone need to own an AK-47?"

I smile and wait. Neil Boorkz is on the radio making small talk about the 'Ruler in Chief.'

The Shotgun News reader eases the magazine down onto his lap and replied, "Why would you need to own," and points towards a picture of a hunting rifle in the Fudd's magazine, "that rifle?"

"Well, so I can deer hunt."

I glance outside and chuckle. Fudd has an appearance of  said deer caught in a car's headlights.

"Then," said the Shooter, "Why would you object to my right to own a weapon which helps me hunt democritters?" Like that.
