“Boomershoot is… the sound of freedom.” –Michael Bane Shooting Gallery
[Joe calls his event the magic kingdom for rifle shooters. Michael at the end of the Boomershoot episode of the shooting gallery rephrased it to the above. They’re both right. The event is like no other in the world. Every year some new idea comes up that keeps it oh so magical. I heard Ry’s new idea but you’ll all find out about that later. As for being the sound of freedom, where else can you do something like this? Many wouldn’t mind if it was illegal, some have even referred to participants as being sick for it. As far as I’m concerned they’re puritans. The worst thing I know of that’s happened was squeaky’s nose, though my sun burn last year was monumentally stupid and hurt like hell. –B]
