Everyday is a good day when you can scare some frogs with an ROA.
I second that emotion Doc. Kinda like fishing or being out on a boat or diving. Doesn't matter if you actually accomplish doing anything or catching anything, or find anything underwater while diving, it's the fun of just getting out, feeling free (whether real freedom or just the impression of it) and enjoying being out doing what you like. When I was a boy I always wanted to build a homemade raft with a little tent on it (like in Tom Sawyer) and just float down the Hillsborough river all day fishing with a string attached to my toe and doing basically nothing other than cooking the occasional fish I might catch and eating it. Wouldn't have mattered what I did. Just that I would be out on the raft enjoying myself and feeling the freedom (that is so rare in a peopled society, especially with .gov today). Never accomplished that raft but get kinda the same feeling when I go out on a friends boat or ESPECIALLY when I am diving or shooting as you gettin out with the ROA and the frogs. I can definitely relate.

Of course beer as the capper afterwards to it all just makes it.

"This is my Remy and this is my Colt. Remy loads easy and topstrap strong, Colt balances better and never feels wrong. A repro black powder revolver gun, they smoke and shoot lead and give me much fun. I can't figure out which one I like better, they're both fine revolvers that fit in my leather".
"To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first and call whatever you hit the target".
