Self Abusing the Legal System July 31, 2008

Posted by skinbad in Crime, Entertainment, Travel.

Coming up on your left

So he’s wrestling the crocodile and filming it. And he’s driving 150 km/hr. Granted, not mph, but still, that’s pretty fast. Using Sobek’s cocaine price per kilo calculations as a basis, that’s got to be like, 80 or something.* How many hands does this guy have?

Loaded .22 rifle and a bunch of weed in the car as well. Great, great explanation for the rifle:

Mr Erhardt also told police he had used the rifle to shoot “kangaroos from the vehicle whilst driving north”.

Found whilst perusing Fark

*93 mph

Here’s the line that makes the story heartwarming…

Brendon Alan Erhardt, 39, was granted bail so he could marry his girlfriend of six months before he goes to jail.

I’m a little surprised she’ll still have him.

She was ticked until he assured her he was thinking of her the whole time.

3. Sobek - July 31, 2008

Feh. I’ll only be impressed if they tell me he was also committing robbery, producing counterfeit Luis Vitton bags, and evading taxes at the same time.

Sounds like Mr. Erhardt was Holden his own…

*rim shot*

Thanks folks. Don’t forget to tip your blogger!

Now, that is a Man’s man!

He’s not some metrosexual nancy boy like the Silky Pony or the Obamamessiah.

Phooey! I thought it was a real crocodile.

Wow. Would a .22 really be able to take out a kangaroo? Last time I was at the zoo, those critters looked pretty big.

8. Russ from Winterset - August 1, 2008

Well, yeah. A .22 wouldn’t exactly stop a rampaging ‘roo dead in it’s tracks. But when you’re shooting out the window of a moving car full of drugs while simultaneously waxing your dolphin, I doubt that you’re looking for a quick kill so that you can get the big rat skinned and into the cooler.

(TRANSLATION: A .22 will kill a kangaroo, but not humanely or quickly. Unless you make a head shot within 100 yards or so, which is pretty damn hard to do on a moving ‘roo when you’re actually trying, so it would be a miracle shot from a moving car.)

^honestly, besides from point blank range in the face or small critters like rabbits, is there any reason to own a .22 rifle or pistol?

I ask because I visited the store that sold me the Soviet Rifle in a desire to add another friend of the family. They have a bunch of .22 Ruger Pistols, and .22 rifles. I kinda want something that is low maintenance.

“But when you’re shooting out the window of a moving car full of drugs while simultaneously waxing your dolphin, I doubt that you’re looking for a quick kill …”

Sounds like you speak from experience.

Actually, eddie, the .22 is a great gun to have. It’s dirt cheap to shoot, and the .22 will take down squirrels, rabbits, raccoon, coyotes, and even deer. Supposedly, the .22 long rifle is the most popular gun among deer poachers. Mainly because it doesn’t make a big BOOM & they can lure the deer in close with bait & go for eye shots. They say that more deer have been killed with .22 rifles than with any other gun, and I’m not sure I don’t believe it.

A .22 pistol is a good training gun, plus they’re fun to shoot. If you’re looking for an inexpensive .22 semiauto, those Rugers would be a good choice, or you could get a Browning Buckmark like I’ve got. A single action Ruger Single Six is a good choice, but it’s going to be more expensive than a semiauto, and slower shooting, but the single six is pure poison on targets & as a hunting gun. The ammo for a .22 runs about three or four cents a pop, compared to about a quarter a pop for even inexpensive 38 special loads. That means that you can go through five boxes of .22 ammo for the same cost as you’d spend on a single box of .38 special ammo.

If you don’t have at least one .22 rifle in your closet, you can’t really call yourself a gun nut. Plus, they’re the optimal gun to have when the Zombie Menace finally comes for humanity, so you’ve got to figure that into your calculations.

Sobek, I’m all about the safety. I prefer to keep my drugs, driving, masturbation, and shooting activities all separated.

Eddie, why don’t you start a “help me pick out a .22 rifle” thread so we can all give our firearms $0.02 worth?

13. eddiebear - August 2, 2008

Russ: Will do. I just have to get back from T-Ball, Picking up my daughter’s preschool uniform, a birthday party for a friend of my daughter’s being held at Grant’s Farm, and then I shall.

Eddie, why don’t you start a “help me pick out a .22 rifle” thread

I gots my first comment typed out and ready.

15. skinbad - August 2, 2008

Remember when the NYLON 66 was a rifle and not an old COUGAR on the bed waiting for DUSTIN HOFFMAN?

16. The Old Cougar - August 2, 2008

You should know, Big Boy.

I recommend Delta Force. If they can’t rescue her, no one can.

Besides, if you DO start that thread, your wife will have something to add to her list of what you waste your time doing along with masturbating walruses and nekkid guys gettin’ tasered.
