I didn't have a gun, duh, but I figured if I just set it down on it's side

I guess I thought that's what was expected and told her what I did. She took
me up in a great big hug. "Oh, Robby..." and started crying too. "What

to a doctor. I can't remember what Dad said when he came home from work.
That's my story and I'm sticking to it. For now. PLUS I have little bits of metal

Ha, i did something like that when i was about 10.
There was a cop that lived down the street. One day after the garbage men had picked up the trash, I found a stray bullet lying near a toppled can.
No idea why a cop would throw away a bullet?
Anyway took it home, and later that night i had an idea.
I put it in my dad's vice in the basement, put a screwdriver on the end of it, and smacked the screwdriver as hard as i could with a hammer.
Sure enough it went off with a loud bang!
Scared the crap out of me...hell, i dont even know if i was smart enough to make sure i wasnt in the bullets potential trajectory.
Mom immediately yelled down "what was that?"
Made up some lie and she believed me...told me dinner was ready in five.
Mmmm, roast beef, mashed potatoes and gravy.

We just loved the process of assembling it. Never even saw the Bing, Bang, Boing before. I would have enjoyed that one for sure.
Probably because I was a senior in high school then. More interested in motorcycles.
 
Gosh you're old. I don't remember it either. I was a junior. Had an orange Kawasaki 250 trail bike. Man I loved that thing...

That sounds like fun!
Me and Larry down in the woods in what we thought was an abandoned treehouse when two of the local bullies walked up and told us it was theirs and let Larry climb down but told me I could have it but I had to jump out. It was 20 feet up man! I begged like a wuss but he told me to stop or he would beat my ass when I hit the ground. Well, I did the math and jumped. Man that hurt. Larry just stood there and laughed, that butthole.
I never shot anybody with a real gun, including myself, though that happened several times in my neighborhood. Closest I got was shooting a crybaby across the street with a slingshot. I told him to hold the trashcan lid up but did he listen? No. I also shot my brother with my cousins BB gun. He probably dared me. I shot him right in the ass. Got whupped for that one. He got me in trouble all the time, man!
