Being a Good Country Neighbor

Cow in field

Part of being a good country neighbor in a rural area is treating people and their property with respect. There is an old saying, “People in glass houses should not throw rocks.” Here in the country, just about all of us have something to lose. Chances are most of us have chickens, ducks, dogs, cattle, goats, horses… etc. It would be a shame for my neighbor to shoot my dogs, when we both have chickens and dogs. It could just as easily have been his dogs that found my chickens, as my dogs found his chickens.

A few days ago I was walking to the back of the property with my dogs, when I spotted one of my neighbors cows. Not wanting the dogs to go after the cow, I took them back to the house and closed them up.

From the time the 40 S&W was introduced I found the recoil excessive. People who know me personally probably remember me saying that since the 1990s. But when you post it in public, saying you do not like the 40 is worst than sacrilege. How dare someone say they do not like a high pressure round that has excessive recoil. Learning to shoot the 40 S&W is just a matter of training, right?

Nope!
