One of the funniest headlines I've ever read.
Happens to Mrs. Smooth all the time.
LOL... hard to improve that!
So where’s the news?
The husband must be a real stinker!
Wow. That is a scentsational headline!!!!
Nice shootin' thar, Tex....
Not a ping.
Authorities say a Central Texas woman aiming for a skunk accidentally shot her husband when the bullet ricocheted.
Brazos County Sheriff Chris Kirk says the husband was expected to be released Monday from a Houston hospital. Kirk says the accident happened Sunday night at the family’s house near College Station. The husband was inside.
The sheriff says the wife, who has a concealed handgun permit, came out of the home’s detached garage and saw a skunk. Kirk says the woman fired a .45-caliber handgun at the animal but missed.
The liberals are doubtlessly going to attempt to use this event as justification for banning all guns, but the husband is likely taking it all in good humor. The people who whine about guns the most have never seen one, fired one, or been shot by one.
Cop: “Just one question, Ma’am. Do you know what kind of skunk it was?”
Woman: “Yes. It was a low-down, good for nothing, lying, cheating, beer-swilling skunk who told me that my rear end looks fat!”
The shooter had had his automatic customized with easier trigger pull, and apparently fired off an extra shot on an upward kick while double or triple tapping. It went between some spaced overhead planks, over the berm, into the building, skimming the ceiling before being directed down through a sheet rock wall, into one of the most unlucky persons ever, sitting in a chair in the back room of the building. RIP.
From the article: “Kirk declined to release the names of the couple.”
I’ll bet that the husband was PLEADING with the police not to divulge their names. LOL
Reminds me of that story a few months ago where some guy shot at and hit what he thought was a wild pig that turned out to be his girlfriend.
You need to recognize the difference between a boar and a sow.
Sounds like hubby needs to find a better cologne...
I know the dif - Barrack and Michelle!!
I’ve never shot anybody on purpose either...
So she shot the skunk —
WOW........bet she plays a mean game of billiards....what a shot....banked the .45 ball off the long rail...kissed the 8 ball....tapped the near rail...did a reverse off the 3...back to the far rail...and ** B_A_M **.... cleanly into the far corner pocket.
That’s her story and she’s sticking to it.
“The people who whine about guns the most have never seen one, fired one, or been shot by one.”
I have never whined about guns and I never intend to be shot by one either. My barrel is always pointed at a target and I ain’t a target!
Big Military related school. Ex Big 12, newly SEC.
Potato, potahto. I am a little curious to learn if the husband she shot is (was?) hers or the skunk's.
I'm betting she was aiming at her husband. Who shoots a skunk with a .45 right by their house/garage? Dead skunks STINK. Heck, who shoots a skunk, anyway? Just don't do anything startling and wait for it to wander off.
...the bullet ricocheted off a deck, went through the house’s closed back door and struck the husband in the abdomen.
Nice shootin’ thar, Tex....
Bullets do crazy things in Texas #magicbullet
Yeah, the matchup in varmint size vs. caliber sounded suspicious to me too. Hadn’t considered the olfactory implications, but that’s an excellent point.
We ignore sulfhydryl compounds (or thiols or mercaptans, if you prefer) at our peril.
Methyl butyrate is a real winner too.
What, he couldn't tell that before he started dating her?
