For some time now, I have wanted to go hunting. Finally, this year, I have the opportunity to go deer hunting with a friend. I was able to score a great deal on a hunting shotgun/scope combo, so I was ready to go. My friend had been researching his options and, unknown to me, had come to the same conclusion regarding a new shotgun/scope combo for him. So, we both ended up with the same style shotguns. This fact becomes important in a minute.
Purchases made, it was time to sight in the scope. We made plans and headed out to the range, which was about 40+ minutes away. We get there, and he goes first. He sets up and begins the process. I use the binoculars and call out the shots.
Once he's done, it's my turn. I take out my shotgun and, ... just stare at it.
Can I borrow your bolt?
Ermm...yes. I seem to have left my bolt at home.
Why did you take out the bolt?
Note to self: Don't forget the important parts of the shotgun when it's time to go hunting. It'll be a lot harder to use someone else's there.
