ok so my dog did battle with a possum under my shed while i was at work. Apparently it went on for a couple of hours. He is a Border Terrier and a spoiled city dog. So when i came home my wife and two daughters were all freaked out First i got him out of there. The Possum stayed under and hissed at us. What to do what to do. I went upstairs and like Paris Hilton picking out shoes for a night out , looked threw my guns and decided on the Ruger .22 Mark 1. I figured it was the quietest gun I have.Don't forget , I live in a very Anti gun state.I had my daughters boyfriend chase the possum out and had it cornered.It was nice sized about maybe 15 feet long......give or take. I had the boyfriend go get my lawnmoter and waited for him. As I waited i stood there eye to eye.....and had second thoughts.Poor animal , one of Gods creatures ...you know shit like that....but then i thought....he'll keep coming back and freak out my females, and that would get on my nerves and i might go on somekind of shooting spree.So i told my accomplice Daniel to crank up the lawn mower on three.He did and i shot......perfect timing and i hit it in the throat from about 10 feet. it was still alive twitching so i had daniel repeat the drill and this time it was a head shot.......i was kinda proud that i man'd up, but now i kinda feel a little shitty......
