Oleg Volk and I should collaborate. While I take a mean snapshot (natural light only), Oleg is the sina qua non of firearms photography. While Oleg has strong opinions, no one writes more words about guns than Your Humble Servant. I reckon we’d be . . . at each other’s throats. Clock this picture, scraped from olegvolk.net and cropped to remove the caption: “Not bad for a novice!” Our Ralph could think of a hundred better lines, even without an ironic exclamation mark. Don’t feel any pressure Ralph. In fact, you’re such a funny bastard I’m making you the judge for this, TTAG’s second caption contest . . .

The winner gets a box Hornaday 308 WIN 165 gr. BTSP ammo provided by luckygunner.com. I’m the only other ineligible human, so I’ll shut up now. Except to say that the contest ends at 6pm EST tonight (Saturday), ironic exclamation marks are OK! and our UK readers will get a real kick out of the target company’s name. Too obscure for a U.S. caption, but funny!

  1. The only sound was the echo of gunfire… The poor mime just couldn’t get out of the glass box.

  2. Sorry, but he looks (and performs) so much like my ex, I couldn’t resist at least one headshot.

  3. I said clean up your room!
    I call it the Gaddafi, 13 center mass, 1 to the head, from concealment, in under 4 seconds.
    This is why I need a standard (high) capacity magazine.

  4. “They’d sell a lot more of these targets if they’d make them just a bit longer and include a third circle. Nothing says ’empowerment’ like me shooting off a bloke’s tackle.

    Stupid G.I.T.S.”

  5. If you shoot them enough you’ll see everyone as a gooey white center.

    (The ! is just for me.)

  6. Q: What does the novice shooter say to the perp?

    A: Nothing. She already told him 14 times.

  7. “Happiness Is a Warm Gun”

    The Beatles song from The White Album

    According to Lennon, the title came from the cover of a gun magazine that producer George Martin showed him: “I think he showed me a cover of a magazine that said ‘Happiness Is a Warm Gun.’ It was a gun magazine. I just thought it was a fantastic, insane thing to say. A warm gun means you just shot something. Like heroin into your arm.”


  8. “All t his and brains too.”

    “I’m the girl your mother warned you about”

    “I don’t have a license to kill. I have a learner’s permit.”

    “Shoot. It’s the second best thing you can do with your hands.”

  9. I’m new to this.

    I only missed the head thirteen times.

    I need more practice the first shot was right where I wanted it, the other thirteen I jerked.
