Did this guys parents name him correct or whatPosted by BGCPed on 9/16/03 at 09:51 (130194)
We had a guy go on a spree shooting up his trailer park last night. It was fortunate that nobody was hurt but the idiot that did the shooting, he shot himself afterwards. I couldnt give him a better name if I tried. He was one Mr. Melvin Clarence Buckmaster
I am not making this up

I don't get it. Is it the Buckmaster part of the name...I'm having a blonder than usual moment here. Help.

Well yes buckmaster and also the other names. No offense to anyone but idiot criminals seem to always have a rather dumb sounding name. A buckmaster is a model of gun and the fact he shot up a trailer park is kind of ironic. But I am one to watch th tv show COPS and laugh at some of the really stupid people

I do a little target shooting....but I don't know anything about the brands of guns. Thanks

A Libby shooting a gun? you will get scorned by your peers. If Michael Moore sees this he may show up at your door to berate you. How can you be a Teacher AND shoot a gun?

p.s. i have a HK 9mm very nice one. what do you have or shoot?
Re: Did this guys parents name him correct or whatmarie on 9/17/03 at 17:32 (130372)
You must be a city boy. I married a conservative who is proud that there is a picture of him with a gun in a bar in a small town not to far from here in Montpelier Ohio. I live in hunting country. My hubby doesn't hunt anymore but he still likes to target shoot...and he's a crack shot. I personally have no problem with folks who want guns for hunting..like a 22 under tight scrutiny. I am not in favor of hand guns.
I am not a hunter but I am pretty good at hitting a beer can at 30 feet. So if you're sitting on your porch with a beer and it gets shot out of your hand you'll know it's me.:D

Well I don't have anything. They belong to hubby. He gets it ready for me and I point and shoot. I am no gun efcianado, obviously. I have just started. What's the gun that Dirty Hairy had when he said 'Are you feeling lucky today?' Hubby had one for a long time but never told me about it. It's gone now. I think it was a 44 magnum???? A 22 is plenty good for target shooting. I enjoy shooting the pellot gun at targets even more so because it's not noisy and it's light wait. My goal is to hit the target. It's just something to do. Like I said my hubby doesn't hunt any more, he just up and quit, it just hit him and he couldn't kill another animal. Fine with me.
Re: Did this guys parents name him correct or whatBGCPed on 9/17/03 at 20:14 (130385)
I am same way. I dont desire to shoot an animal just targets. How did he hide and purchase a 44 mag under your nose? You should have him buy you a Browning 'Buckmark' 22 cal. Good target gun and they are not expensive bullets are cheap also.
Remember 'The couple that has their own guns, dont have nasty arguments' and 'An armed couple is a polite couple'

We have a very large house, mostly I guess he kept it in a safe at his business. He mostly target shot with it, a hobby thing. He has always liked guns.
He sold a 22 to buy our wedding bands before we got married. He occasionally shoots skeet. But we just do a little target shooting at the cabin. I was tiked at first but I am learning about guns so that I am not afraid of them anymore. I prefer the pellet gun because it's light weight and easy for me to handle. My wrists, elbows and shoulders are stiff all the time...probably a little carpel tunnel. You may be surprised to know that I know alot of real liberals, I'm just a slightly left of center Democrat, that target and skeet shoot and are women in the area. You're in the Detroit area so I am sure you understand the hunting mentality in the tri-state area. I'd say most of my students get their first gun when they're 13, which I don't agree with. Hunting season is coming up. Our students are allowed to take a day off from school to go hunting, that's how engrained it is in the area. Despite my feelings about war and guns, I have sons and reality is that they need to know the basics about gun safety and how to use them. They also only target shoot under my hubby's supervision. Neither of them have the desire to own a gun or kill animals. But if they ever feel the need to own one at least they know the basics.

That is the smart way. I first got a BB gun, then 22 birdshot then a 410 etc. My Father was in WW2 and was a Marksmen and a 50 cal spec. We learned to respect AND understand guns. The kids that shoot each other by accident didnt learn that. They find a gun and want to play with it. In my house you played with it you were toast.
I was brn in Detroit and moved at 13 y/o so I have a different mindset on the old theory that guns equal violence. As I was growing up Detroit was the murder capitol. But you can go to parts of Wyoming for instance. many folks have guns in their car or home. They go to a bar and get drunk and fight. They could, if they wanted to, shoot the guy. They dont because they have a different mindset

BG: I started with spitballs, slingshot, Daisy BB Gun, Red Ryder BB gun, .22 rifle, .45 automatic, M-1 Rifle, .38 automatic, AR-15, M-1 Grenade Launcher and finally rockets and a gatlin gun on my aircraft. I purchased a Glock 9mm when I retired and have never fired it. I do not hunt and have not shot a weapon since my retirement. I do take down and oil my weapon annualy. When hunting season comes to Arkansas businesses close down for a week.or more as there are so many hunters. We have a few people killed each year in hunting accidents. Deer and Ducks are the big thing around here. I do not eat either and once shot a squirrill when I was 10 and have never shot anything since. Like Michigan this is a hunting state with a hunting culture. Any politician that comes out against guns here can be counted as a 'dead duck'. hmmm I like that pun.
Re: Did this guys parents name him correct or whatBGCPed on 9/18/03 at 16:08 (130470)
Your right. Our big deal is deer season. It kicks off in november and for 1 week up north is filled. Guys spend loads of money to go up and drink, play cards and maybe get a buck. Hookers also go up there in motorhomes. Then the prod hunters drive back with that prize strapped to the roof (deer not hookers).
Good time to be a single guy and stay downstate if you know what I mean. Deerhunting widows are just as bad as the guys up hunting are
Re: Did this guys parents name him correct or whatmarie on 9/18/03 at 17:18 (130475)
Our deer hunting season usually coinsides with Thanksgiving. Most of our students will be gone at least one day. We get hookers here to but they usually work the truck stops. I think duck and goose hunting will start this weekend. The main thing I don't like about deer hunting is that it isn't safe to go hiking in the woods. There are some hunters that drink but most are pretty sober. There are always a few rebels out there but for the most part we don't have to many hunting accidents.
It's important for land owners near the woods to keep their dogs and cats in. Some hunters will shoot a dog if it's making to much noise and they seem to think every cat is fair game...it disgusts me.
I had a superintendent who was a big hunting advocate. He was in Pheasants Forever. He was with a group that shot a cat and then one of the guys held it up and the whole group was laughing. What they didn't know was the owner was watching them from her front window in horror. Needless to say he is no longer a superintendent at that school.
We have squirl, rabbit, deer, duck/goose, pheasant, and coyote season.

Anybody that would shoot a family cat is an absolute idiot and to laugh at that in a group is even worse.
Re: Did this guys parents name him correct or whatmarie on 9/19/03 at 21:44 (130573)
Well some years later that superintendent was teaching a class at a nearby college. I happened to meet some of the teachers taking the class at a conference. They told me they liked the class but their teacher was constantly getting off track and talking about hunting. I told them just to ask him 'when is it open season for shooting little girls kitties?' They did, and he never said another word about hunting.
Hunters see cats as competition for small game...like a cat has much of a chance for wiping out the squirl and rabbit population....so they somehow think it's ok to kill the competition.
Makes me mad!
