This guy who used to work for my uncle had that too. I was in my early teens when I met him and it freaked me out. It made you want to look over your shoulder to see who he was talking to.

Why did your friend give up hunting? Was it just the lost eye, or did the stroke incapacitate him further? Although I look awkward, I have no problem shooting right-handed, but using my left eye.

My father was a sporting shooter, but sold all of his gear off in the mid-80's. He had been a champion pistol shooter in the Army, but was a great shot with any rifle or shotgun too. He has awards for hitting 25, 50 & 75 skeet in a row. When we lived in Indonesia, I once had a mouse in my room. Dad came in with his air pistol and shot it as it ran along the edge of the wall! Got it in the neck!!

His guns were kept in a wall cabinet beside his bed (big-time security freak). As best as I can remember, at one stage he had:

.308 (I think it was a Mauser??)
.303 Military Issue rifle (don't recall what brand)
12-gauge with shortened barrel (used it for pig hunting)
12-gauge Under-and-over (for skeet. He used to load his own cartridges.)
Air rifle (he'd target-shoot down our hallway at home!!!)
.44 Magnum (KA-BOOOOM!)
.38 (don't know what it was)
Air pistol (hallway target-shooting!!!)

Like I said, he sold it all, but then bought another air pistol in Indonesia, just for in-house fun... and mouse hunting!




In God, we trust; all others must provide data.
