The previous post concerned how my defensive handgun would fare against javelina and wild boar. Long time reader augustr had a request.
“I seem to remember a story where you were hunting in a thicket and came up against a hog. NO link?”
I thought that the post had been lost, but our friend knirirr was kind enough to suggest web.archive.org, otherwise known as the Wayback Machine. It took some digging but I found an archived version dated .
There are some embarrassing mistakes in the essay. The one that is truly unforgivable is that I confuse javelina with wild boar, and even misspell the word. “…torn to shreds as the havelina furiously tried to throw me off.” My only excuse is that I had only been to Texas that once, and I had heard people mention javelina. I just never bothered to ask if they were different from wild boar.
At any rate, those who are interested can read about the day I used up all of the luck God allotted me for my entire life.
That’s a pretty darn intense story James. Glad that you’re still with us.
just below that in your archives? is advice on jammed guns, I never really thought about it but first thought (at least for 1911s) is, if it is seriously jammed, why not remove the firing pin before starting anything else.
