Straight shooter

While some of you have been wasting your time worrying about who was going to win "American Idol" or "Dancing With the Stars" or even (the more traditional among you) the NFL or the NCAA, you've been ignoring the great and wonderful Annual World Peashooting Championsip. This year marks the 39th annual contest. Pictured below is one of the contestants. I don't know how well he did, but that is one awesome peashooter.






He should have to register that thing and get a carry permit. But don't get carried away. Remember, if peashooters are outlawed .  . .

Cripes, that IS some kind of "high-tech" peashooter...!
(Why didn't our city go and build us an ARENA for THIS venue, instead of the ballpark anyway?

Hey, Maybe Chief Rusty can get a grant to have the FWPD purchase about 100 of these puppies to add to the "less-than-lethal" arsenal.

Heck, I could add one of them to my collection of blowguns and slingshots!

Yepper, I feel safer walking MY street just thinking about that!

I notice that Taser International has unveiled a new stun gun ( http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/article/ALeqM5hGlnBcRFhlWf9phxiSLIfiC5iSdQD99MTK500 ) that overcomes the limitation of the current model, which has to be reloaded after one shot; the new one can shock three people without reloading. Heck, depending on how many peas you can hold in your mouth at one time, you could turn the peashooter into a damn macine gun.
