Aww, thanks! For the record I didn't do the pistol thing and it wasn't planned. The blanks in his hunting rifle yes. No one really knew what was going to happen when the dude pulled the pistol but most of knew about the blanks and assumed. It was a tense moment until the trigger pulled and we realized the guy wasn't bleeding. Then it was fucking hilarious. Especially when we realized the poor soul had shit himself.
Ok, another time we set up a propane tank and the guy down field started dancing like a drunk monkey when we started shooting. We were way, way, way over his head and off to the side and he undoubtedly realized this but he was ghost face white. He was really pissed at first but it was funny later.
As a side note, this guy is missing his left thumb because he caught a rattlesnake and made it a pet as a student at UT. He was feeding a mouse one day when it bit his thumb. He also got arrested for a knife fight once but we were "rich kids" and his dads oil money plus a lawyer for an uncle got him off of charges.
He's now a senior petroleum engineer running crews all over the world for a huge oil company. Not BP.
Just so you know Vicomte, I will probably die young. I've had some close calls and love a good adrenaline rush that only risky activities sans polite society safety restraints can bring.
You guys are still fucking pussies though.
