Day 1289: “Move Your Whiskey Before You Start Shooting”

D’s been invited to a bachelor party.  At a firing range.  This is a video response. (Here’s the link if video doesn’t load.)

    Now I feel the overwhelming urge to blow holes in a giant stuffed animal AND a Doonesbury character! Whilst holding a parasol, of course.

    Asked if I can go on this trip just to shoot things and alleviate all of this stress. Got stared down and told that it’s Boy Time. I don’t even have to be in the same part of the range they’re in. Forget them. What about an all-girl trip to the range? But, no stuffed animals because I’m partial to them, even the horribly-disfigured, cock-eyed ones thrown from floats.

    Hell, I’ll go with you! It’ll be “Annies, Get Your Guns” day. We need to get cracking on this. Perhaps Pistolette can help.

    The second I see a Mary Kay Commando pink Uzi, though, I’m gonna run off screaming. I prefer purple.

    I am so glad that you ladies are there and I am here.

  • GentillyGirl March 9, 2009, 3:19 PM

    I wanna go and shoot guns! (It’s not legal to do that in the city)

    Instaed of stuffed animals, can we shoot at clowns?

    Ladies, there are trap and sporting clay ranges everywhere. Including some in Louisiana: http://www.claytargetsonline.com/list.php/LA

    Nothing alive and kicking, and no stuffed animals. Effigies, facsimiles of objects of ire and electronics are very welcome, however. How does one create an explodable representation of Windows 2000 and Internet Explorer 6?

    Bob, I suck at moving targets, and everyone will accuse me of wasting ammo. So, it will have to be somewhere I can set something up 20 feet away from me and shoot at it ’til it’s good and destroyed.

    I’m of the opinion that you can’t go wrong with the Burberry rifle, as pictured here.

    That song is utterly fantastic too, listen to it.

    Last I saw, there is a shooting range out in Jefferson Parish, on the east bank. It’s somewhere off Airline past Zephyr Field, almost to W. Metairie Rd or some such thing. Will have to fish around a little.

    I wanna use the LSEA for target practice, myself…as well as Sarah Palin, any sci-fi villains, and little girls carrying college textbooks like in “Men In Black”.

    Bwahaha! That video was so funny! I’ve never seen it before. Though it makes me like Conan more now.

    I think the idea of drinking while shooting is baaaaaad bad bad. Alcohol is banned at all ranges, so the bachelor must know the owners or something special. I hope this is not some new trend :-(

    We should definitely put together a girls day out shooting. I’ve got memberships all over. We could show up dressed like Bond girls if we really wanna make a scene. My goal is to get as many pics as possible of chicks shooting my Desert Eagle like they mean it ;-)

    I, unfortunately, am an anti-gun type. That having been said, I loved the video and agree with whoever said it made them like Conan more! That was hilarious. Typically HST it seems to me. “Move your whiskey before you start shooting” is one of the best lines I’ve ever heard. I’ll have to find a way to use it down the road! Hilarious!

    And if you guys, er, girls do run off to the range, I’ll be expecting lots of pics. Can you at least shoot an effigy of Limbaugh for me? I’ll gloat vicariously.

  • Maitri March 9, 2009, 5:55 PM

    Pistolette: The trip to the firing range is only part of the bachelor party. I mean, hell, how are they going to concentrate on firing with strippers around? (Don’t answer that question.) HST was special (in every sense of the word) enough that he probably couldn’t shoot straight without a whiskey chaser.

    I’m going to dress as May Day, Grace Jones’s character in A View To A Kill.

    If you can’t make it to a shooting range, sledgehammers can be quite cathartic.

  • candice March 9, 2009, 9:50 PM

    I’m late to the conversation, but I can at least bring a few things to shoot with if we go.

    So, a trip out to honey island or something or should we all go shooting in town? (Pistolette I am looking at you here, I’ve only been to shooters and there.)

    Maitri: beware low-cut shirts and shells if you intend to shoot automatics. I get the occasional burn in t-shirts with mine. Not fun. I can bring a couple of clay’s revolvers though if you like.

    Something is amiss. According to Wikipedia, Hunter S. Thompson committed suicide in 2005.

  • Maitri March 10, 2009, 10:48 AM

    Blair: He did. As Conan implied at the beginning of the segment, this is a reminiscence, one in a series as he prepared to leave The Late Show to take over for Jay Leno as host of The Tonight Show.
