  1. I'm convinced. I'm going to start shooting pigeons, thanks to you. I'm used to seeing Rock Doves (what we call pigeons over here), but they are about the same thing, right? We can shoot them year 'round if they are within so many feet of buildings. So, you may have the corner on pigeon posts now...Ah - I'll leave the posts to you. You have a remarkable sight. Love it.

  2. That is a fine recipe, top to bottom!

    Makes me wanna go shoot barn pigeons too...

  3. When I was a little kid, we had a neighbor, an older Italian lady, who would give me a nickle for each head shot rock pigeon. I would borrow this older guys Sheridan pump it exactly 7 times, and bust those pigeons off the roof of the house. Sometimes I could make a whole quarter in a couple of hours. Oh, and if they weren't head shot, I would only get 2.5 cents, and she meant it too.
