    I don't usually bake, but tonight I made butter tarts. Holy fuck did they taste good. "Did". Yep, past tense.

    They went amazingly well with spiced rum and coke... tomorrow is going to be one big day of diabetic coma.

    In other news, tonight I started up the "vermin control program". Our neighbourhood is being overrun with skunks due to the insane grubs we have in our lawns, so I set up a motion detecting light under the deck, popped the screen out of the window, and got the high-powered pellet gun out of the gun safe.

    Scratch one big fucking skunk. Luckily it got hit and fucked off under the fence to the neighbour's yard, or beyond. No doubt it's not long for this world, and bonus points for not having to dispose of it.

    Oh Canadia, with your cute pellet guns.

    Why didn't you get the race gun out and make a night of it.

    Because it's in a heavily populated neighbourhood, shooting towards my neighbour's house that's 60 feet away. Stealth is the key.

    That being said, this fucking pellet gun shoots around 600 fps, accurately out to about 40 yards, using a .22 hunting pellet. It'll go through 1/4" plywood targets. It's the perfect nocturnal deterrent.

    Seriously my first thought, no fucking around, was, Oh Jesus

    Then I wondered why you didn't post those images here

    (I want to delete my comment because, in light of recently received information, it would be difficult to post all the scandalous, amazing photos of Miss Brie)

    No, if he's using the same gun I'm thinking of, it's the one he recommended on here and I bought on a whim. It's insanely accurate and disposes of critters quick when I don't feel like fucking with the .22 or even the AR (for noise reasons, with both -- sometimes you just wanna rid the world of all raccoons in 15 minutes).

    I've gone through a lot of pellet guns over the years, and just performance wise that one is fucking head and shoulders above the rest. It's a break barrel and a tack driver

    The gas stations here are warning people to fill up and take extra gas cans for the traffic in Oregon.


    We're at a 92ish percent eclipse. Why the fuck would I or anyone else drive down there in that shit?

    And anything over 500fps and it is classified as a firearm and all the rules and regulations apply, that is why you see so many that say 499fps.

    I knew it.

    This motherfucker is one bad boy.
    (It's also 495 fps *wink* so it's not a firearm.)

    I know it doesn't look it, but it's the performance that matters. I've given the relatives I like that as a gift (the ones I hate can suck it and buy it themselves). You don't always need stealth and methodical execution of vermin, but when you do, it's the right tool for the job.

    Actually, I upgraded since then...

    I can't find the .22 version, but I liked that "cheap" version so much that I bought the .22 version of a higher quality model: http://www.cabelas.ca/product/30123/ruger-air-magnum-177-air-rifle

    It's 1200 fps for the .17, but I remember it being 600 fps for the .22. It actually might be higher, I'm not sure... but all I do know is that it fucking kicks some ass.

    Yeah... not really what I consider to be a "pellet" gun.

    Needless to say, it's damn effective for keeping the critters down in the back yard in the middle of a big city.

    What matters to me in a pellet gun is that it kills so long as you don't completely fuck up the shot, it's quick to re-load, and that it's quiet. The $50 version you recommended to me (the one I posted the link for) I feel like performs like a $200 rifle. Like a silenced .22 except without the range.

    That being said, Texas laughs at Canadian regulations. I'm honestly a bit surprised they even asked me for my ID when I got my last pistol. It's like as long as you offer a handshake everything is cool.

    So after I mow the lawn tomorrow I'm gonna spray some weapons-grade insecticide on the grass for mosquitoes and laugh in Canada's general direction.... the north pole right?

    When you guys open a new loaf of bread, how far do you reach in to grab the first slice?

    Two slices at least.

    I see this turning into a debate.

    I am officially trading my BBQ for manual labor around the house.

    I think I have found my calling.
