Excuse me if the leftmost photo conjures up a certain former shipmate residing in California, who drinks his coffee black and takes his target practice very, very seriously. I will not tell you who he is - that would be obvious from his own frequent and numerous postings of both proficiently used targets and enviable firearms. My guess is either that he was using a 9mm at 75 yards, without his new eyeglasses, or he was shooting at a moving cursor -- otherwise, the shot pattern would have been much tighter.

We both support the right of U.S. citizens (who have not forfeited their rights by convictions in courts of law) to keep and bear arms. By all appearances, the ex-submariner I have in mind, is also a tidy environmentalist. I am sure that he must take care in appropriately disposing spent ammo and obsolete electronic equipment. (Doubly so, if he is married to a wife like mine).
Finally, here is a rather fitting tribute to one John Charles Carter, aka the late, great Charlton Heston.

wise guy, huh?
i can totally relate tot he laptop target. as a matter of fact, i've been thinking of photoshopping one and putting it on my site for free download. i can think of a couple of days it would have helped the old blood pressure to pop a couple of caps into the old HP.
and it is definitely sad to think that Chuck is gone. but like he said, he'd lived a wonderful life, and had enough experiences to fill two lives. that we all could be so lucky!

Take it you do not wish a politically correct answer, Bo.

There is a strong indication the pervert pictured in your target is already dead. Interpol has yet to catch him in a single internet chat arrangment to meet underage girls or boys for illicit paradise sex.

Perhaps he gets what he needs in his autonomous hiding habitat, or by other autonomous means.
