I know a place where not two decades ago kids that trespassed knew, if they were seen, they would be shot at with 'salt load'.

A friend of mine had pockmarks covering the back of his leg on his calf which were a momento from a watermelon run. The rock salt they put in those cartridges were buckshot sized. I still can't imagine how that must have stung.

All we are saying, is give peas a chance.

Better than a rifle filled with carrots.

or something.

Looks like the farmer had...*sunglasses* a peashooter.

I prefer to load my "stingers" with rock salt AND bacon rind.

So, what, the shotgun stole the guy's peas and he wanted revenge?
 
2012-08-08 03:36:18 PM
Where is the news about the subsequent lawsuits, criminal charges, and tasering?
 
2012-08-08 03:37:22 PM
They "greatly annoyed him" and he breaks out the shotgun? Yeah, that's hilarious. No possible way that could have gone wrong.

Great album and those boys put on a HELLUVA show, glad I got to see them before Shonna left.

Nothing worse than taking a load of pee from an old farmer.

What? Peas? That doesn't make any sense.

:-( saw them for the first last time they were in MKE, just not as good with out her or Jason. Last two studio albums were weak and should have been a double album

I guess a peasful resolution is off the table.

Perhaps he was shooting...zombies?

Greatest quote from the article from yesteryear "The boys approached his place and he let fly with both barrels, and his marksmanship was excellent."

It took me awhile to really enjoy Go-Go Boots, but I seem to do that with any of their new releases. At some point I just break down and just keep listening to them and they become part of the catalog for me. But I generally shun them for the first couple months or only find one or two I really enjoy.

Pfffffffft amature! He should have cut loose with a B17 loaded with tactical watermelons

Didn't Mythbusters (as well as Box O' Truth, which is more scientific) show that rocksalt wouldn't do what it was reputed to do, i.e. sting without killing? I expect peas would be the same thing.

Basically at more than a few feet, it does nothing. Light projectiles slow down far too fast.

At 4ft, it could be lethal. At ~12ft, it might have the described effect of breaking the skin and stinging like heck, but it looks like an impractically tight window between doing nothing and simply killing them outright, and that window would move a lot depending on what type of clothing they're wearing. It would never sting someone from across a yard.

My uncle Donald was shot in the back when he was 12 by a shotgun of the same caliber, both barrels, with rock salt. Left scars on his back from neck to crack that looked like acne pits. Itched like hell when the skin got hot till the day he died at 80+. All for stealing watermelons :)

So the man just had to fill them up with his green pea-ness then?

Would have been a good time for the Ironic tag...
