FNG here. Just got into the AR world finally. Been in guns since I was 8 and have a small safe full of weapons and can shoot most anything well. Where I live, my brush gun is my ol' Marlin 30/30 when quading around the property or the ajoining lumber company property. I'm by no means new to guns, just new to AR's. I was in the process of building my first AR when I found a deal I couldn't resist and bought it. I figured it was better to have one in hand sooner than later and will finish my build when I get around to it. I have a permit to carry, check and recomend to anyone to do the same. Here's to good forum days.
dynaglydr replied to MyCleverSN's topic in General TalkI never had to cap any of my pets but I have helped friends out. I think that's the best way. But let me tell ya what not to do these days. My friend asked me to put her cat down so I waited till she went to a friend’s and then went to work. I'll put the cat in an animal carrier and then a plastic trash can. I ran a hose from her car exhaust pipe to the can and duct taped the lid on with a little air hole for air to escape. I turned the car on and left to make dinner, ate and finished watching Warren Miller skiing, and went out to shut the car off. I figured after an hour or so the cat would be asphyxiated. When I pulled the hose out and started opening the lid I heard this terrifying low growl from the bowels of hell. Are you fricken kidding me? I pulled the carrier out and the cat was wet and Piiiiiiiiiiiissed. Well, I guess them new Subaru's are not like dads old Chevy Impala. Back in them days, it took 20-30 minutes to put an animal to sleep. That Subaru must have hardly any asphyxiating fumes emitted, it just made a hot sauna steam bath and that cat was pissed. Needless to say, I put a 22 short into the Ruger, looked the cat in the eye, said “sorry for this, rest in peace.” It died of lead poisoning in the garage. I took the body out and buried it in the woods next to a nice cedar tree and decided, no more asphyxiated animals with car exhaust any more.
