Newbius had brought a beautiful old long gun to Northcoast II and everyone who shot it was ooh'ing over the recoil. I hung back, watching.
Mike said, "You want to try it?" He was grinning.
I demurred. No, no. Too much for little ol' me. Alan nodded. "Do it." Everyone was looking at me expectantly.
Fine. I'll shoot anything once, or at least try - I had promised myself that long ago.
Uh..okay. I guess I'll try again.
And yes, I liked it so much, I DID shoot it again.
