Rolling Stones & The Scotsman

What is the difference between the Rolling Stones and a Scotsman?

The Stones sing a song that goes, "Hey you, get off of my cloud."

The Scotsman says, "Hey McCloud, get off of my ewe!"

First Pheasant Hunt

Last Saturday, I went hunting for the first time since I returned from Nam in '67 and the first time that I have ever gone pheasant hunting.

Beteen some lousy weather, chores, and only having a primitive range at which to shoot, my shooting and reloading have dropped off. I recently loaded up a batch of .308 Winchesters for my new Savage Model 12 and got what I think were some very good results. Rifle: [pic]http://img.photobucket.com/alb...

A Lot of Extra Work And Headache

IMHO, probably nothing but a lot of extra work and headache unless you are a world class competition shooter or a Marine Corps sniper using a highly tuned, precision rifle.
