Yeah, well, you know how it goes. One day you're Mr. Big and the next day.... Reminds me of The Sarge over at the Legion Hovel. Never had any other name anyone knew, just The Sarge. Stood about six-eight in his stocking feet and used to make a living bending two-inch rebar with his bare hands for construction companies. Well, one day he'd drunk a couple of kegs and decided to do a little target practice at the Legion's Shooting Range.
So he pulled out his shootin' iron, which in this case was a sawed-off 105mm howitzer mounted on a Smith and Wesson pistol frame. And he fired off the first round and it kicked itself right out of his hand! This had never happened to The Sarge before and he figgered he was losing his touch. Tore him up inside real bad. He put up his shootin' iron and never touched it again. Said that a man who couldn't handle his firearms didn't have much left to live for. He drank another couple of kegs and joined the local monastery, the Abbey of Saints Dismas and Mary Magdalene and devoted the rest of his life to Good Works and self-flagellation, in that order. After a couple of years he'd shrunk down to four-foot three inches and had a hard time ripped the toilet paper off the roll.
So it just goes to show.
