For some reason, I am very fond of the competition show Top Shot on the History Channel. Shooting stuff up in interesting ways just looks so fun. Not quite as much as blowing things up a la Mythbusters, but serious fun nonetheless.
As a result of my viewing habits, last night during my weekly trivia game I was able to accurately identify a M-16 rifle. Although it was only one point (and I won by more than that) it helped keep my (and my occasional teammates') four-game win streak going.
Hey, fifty dollars of food for knowing what given make of rifle looks like isn't shabby. And I think I can identify a BAR....
Now if I can only get to shoot one.*
*BARs are cool, but I want to learn to shoot a twelve-gauge shotgun. Either a Benelli Vinci or a Winchester 101. I'm not sure why.
