Subject: RE: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
Coincidentally, only a couple of weeks ago, I was waiting for an armadillo to come out from under my house so I could shoot it. I was armed with a 9mm, albeit a carbine instead of a pistol. I usually use a 12 gauge shotgun for varmints, but figured the rifle would be a little quieter on my wife's ears since I was close to the house. The armadillo didn't come out before I got tired of waiting, so I didn't get a chance to shoot my wife.

Since that non-incident, I have inherited a Smith & Wesson .38 Special and a box of rat shot cartridges for it. I suppose that will be my armadillo armament in the future since it will free a hand up to aim a flashlight. No more trying to aim shotguns by moonlight.
