Here's a fun thing to do at night while practicing your pistol skills. Tune in to the Clinton News Network (CNN) or CNBC etc.. Shows like larry King and Geraldo. You can even mute them if it churns your stomach too much. Take out your favorite pistol (make sure it's unloaded!) and dry fire at Larry, Heraldo, Al-Gore, etc... This is especially fun during the primaries since they tend to have a mixture of republicans and democrats on during a short period of time. It can be like Hogan's alley where you have to shoot only at the "bad guys" (Al-gore, Larry, etc) and not hit the "good guys" like Bush and other republicans. You could of course just shoot everybpdy, depending on your political views and what comes out of their mouths!

I think I'd use my shotgun for that.

I would be too tempted to switch to live ammo.

Firearms and TV don't mix! If you shoot - don't watch; if you watch - don't shoot. It would, in fact, be way too tempting to switch to a live fire exercise.

I would never shoot my television. I think my wife would kill me if I did. She's not a big fan of my "hobby" as it is. Plus it's a nice television. I have good incentives never to use live ammo!

I feel the same way about switching to live ammo, but I thought ONLY "THE KING" was allowed to shoot his TV.
I'd better stick to spitwads and cussing loud.
