so, i read a few of the comics for this series in the past, and never really got into it.

this most recent comic, however, completly sold me. i'll have to read the entire archive now.

Have fun. You got around 200+ strips to read. It might take you awhile.

that's it? pft, easy.

I quite like this idea. Can we toss DNF up there too? :P

America: where parents let their kids play with real weapons.

I wish my country had a range, my first shooting range was in the cadet corp. In an aircon room. With LASER-TAG STYLE GUNS. *Big sigh*

But back on topic, I think as long as the parent is no-b**** thorough about gun safety and responsibility, why not? I don't think proper parenting is just about keeping kids away from what is not safe, it's also about teaching kids how to handle things that are in the grey - like guns. No roses though, sorry.

Pff 200 comics is nothing. I came across a comic few years ago thats been going on since 96', over 2000 pages and I read them all!
Freefall is the comic, telling the adventurous tails of Captain Sam Starfall. His petty thefts will leave you laughing and poor.

Shovelware...... 1st use is to shoot it with a gun. 2nd use is for building roads. Lmao.

Even if it's not shovelware.

Open christmas present, see marvel v capcom 3(not ultimate). Forced to fake joy because they wouldn't understand that they got you the totally wrong thing.

The downside is that strips 20-80 are absolutely terrible.

"Special, special gifts. So she came to her godmother with an idea any responsible parent would turn down."

That line there cracks me up.

Now that I read this more and more, it's not a good comic, but it would be a pretty good video short.

CaspianRoach:
Nooooo, Mini, don't bite your tongue while shooting a shotgun! Recoil is not a joke, you'll bite and bleed all over yourself! :S

Exactly what I was thinking. But, in the words of Death, "that would be a very good lesson"

Also loving the quote.

Man, That does suck. Where are you from, if I may ask?

Daystar Clarion:
It's okay. We all know Grey is a chump anyway.

Lazy good for nothing...

You should start a new solo comic.

With Blackjack.

And hookers.

Infact forget the comic! :P

Personally i prefer to burn shovelware, nice long satisfying crackle.

Singapore. It sucks in a way, but considering it's safe out even past midnight I guess the tradeoff is...sort of... fair?

There were a few attempts to sell rifle parts but the law comes down hard and fast here. Just one part gets you a few years in jail.

And the people said amen.

I was 10 the first time I went hunting with the Boy Scouts. I was a top marksmen throughout my scouting career. I had my Rifleman and Shotgun merit-badges, only 2 of the 50 badges I had (I stress that so it does not sound like shooting was all we did).

Of course shooting wasn't the only thing you also have to learn hand to hand combat and how to take out enemy sentries silently. Scouts and sniper training are the same thing right?

If they don't do it, they'll never learn. Half of my friends only remember not to press the scope to their face specifically because they disregarded the advice and get idiot cuts a couple times.

Also, it's how I learned to stop licking electric sockets.

LOL @ scope goggles. always the most hilarious part of the ranges.
also, i did something pretty similar with "Now thats what i call xmas" last year after my flatmate decided it needed playing until feburary and then left it lying around. all 4 disks.

This is an actual problem with non-gamers trying to buy presents for gamers. There's just so much that can go wrong on so many levels, shovelware being just the most common problem...

My familly tend to ask me for a list of games or dvd's to choose from as i'm the resident NEEEEERD.

Tarik94:
GOOD SHOOTING!

Yup, that girl has some badass aim there

My dad first took me out to shoot when I was just a kid. I still remember the first thing he told me before he handed it to me.

"The weapon is always loaded, especially when it's not; the safety is always off, especially when it's on. Never point this at anything you don't want to kill."

That, and seeing firsthand just how much power is behind a .357 Magnum slug (sucker kicks like a mule, and will go through just about anything it hits) was enough to convince me that firearms are not something to be trifled with. Personally, I think if more parents educated their children on how to handle firearms, you'd see a lot fewer cases of little Johnny blowing his best friend's head off while playing Cowboys and Indians.

I came away with AC:revelations and Skyrim....so not so bad...

but then again I had a list..so yeah

Holy crap this bring back memories.

wonderful, I know people who'd pay to shoot crap games all day long!

Note to artist:

Never hand a loaded gun to a child without the express permission of the parent first.

Also, if a kid ever hugs a loaded rifle like that, I'd expect both of those women to retrieve the rifle then give the kid a smack up-side the head for being a moron.

Nuff said.

I wish, it would have made camping a heck of alot more fun, AND we would have had less time to blow things up with cooking stove gas. AH, you can still see our old camp-fire 'ring' based on scorch marks.

I had to learn hand-to-hand in the Army.

Life is safe around my area too, But that comes from small town in Kansas.

That is one badass Christmas right there.

America: where parents let their kids play with real weapons.

The Congo: Where coked-up kids are forced to play with bigger weapons, pointed at people.

America: Where parents are allowed to teach their children to hunt and defend themselves safely.

Shovelware should replace paper targets at firing ranges.

Heh, I remember playing Clay-Shooting on Christmas-eve as a child on one of those chinese NES rip-offs with a shaky pistol-extension ...*sigh* oh, the nostalgia :)

Yeah xkcd has 900+ I went through those whilst studying for finals. Took 2 days. He's got this.

That kid is officially awesome.
