Throwback Thursday: the only shot I’m glad I missed

I’ve been thinking about the past a lot recently. I found this image online when searching for some unrelated flintlock pictures, and it jarred my memory, taking me down a road I’d not traveled in some time. For those that don’t know, that photo is from Season 1 of Top Shot, and right after it was taken I missed a 125 yard shot with that flintlock. I’d like to go back in time to April 2010 when that was filmed and tell younger me to aim a little higher.

Gun humor: what caliber for Cylons?

cx4 storm for cylons

Yesterday in the Space Gun Showdown the Beretta Cx4 Storm edged out the FN P90 as the more practical choice in the real world. I always thought it was amusing watching BSG that their guns of choice for shooting 8 foot tall killer robots were 5.7 pistols with underbarrel “grenade” launchers, and a pistol caliber carbine. I suppose that’s why they call it “fiction” though.
