Well, there were a lot of hits near the ten ring, and so many different kinds of answers: Photographic (2yellowdogs and his “head shot”), English (funny, Brad, but more of a short story than a caption), rhyming (JOE, you’re the poet laureate), esoteric (BTW, KW, if a mime is shot in the forest, does he make a sound?), direct (Rabbi, ‘natch), numeric (mitch127 AND TTACer), ballistic (BLAMMO and Chris Dumm), musical (735olivin), culinary (Double Aught and Buuurr), topical (Wes), multiple (Terry4Strokes and Andrew Wiggins), a little bit country and a little bit rock and roll (JC Riley), biological (Gary Douglas), angelic (Gabriel, natch), murderous (Bob H), anatomical (Abhishek Duggal), and runner-up (John D and Chaz), and if there’s anyone I left out, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa. I’d like to give out multiple awards, but according to the rules as explained to me by the Highlander, there can be only one . . .

And so, the Lucky Gunner-supplied box of almost-too-pretty-to-shoot Hornady Custom 308 WIN 165 gr. BTSP goes to: “the first shot was right where I wanted it, the other thirteen I jerked.” The caption was posted by Javier E. (Please send you snail mail address to RF at [email protected] to claim your prize.) Congratulations, and thanks to all of you for playing.

Oh, and thanks for asking for my own, personal caption: “Thanks for the compliments, fellas, but I was aiming for his balls.”



  1. Great pick Ralph, I also liked Javier’s the best. Lucky for the rest of us that you didn’t compete against us because I’m still laughing at what you would have entered in the contest.

    • I would like to see this as a regular feature, but RALPH must always be the judge in order for any of us to have a shot at winning.
