    one may ask after reading this would be; why in the world would you shoot at a mouse?????

    the chances of hitting it wouldn't be very good...... What ever happened to the good ol' shoe? ;)

    I should try this. We have a mouse problem, living in an old house and all. The traps just aren't catching them quick enough!!

    edit:just had to complete a thought.

    He was very lucky in this situation. I very happy that his girlfriend is OK. Sounds like he is in need of fire arm safety training. Be sure that no human or pet is in the line of fire prior to shooting. :(

    Also, of course, make sure the inside of your house is not in the line of fire.... :rolleyes:

    I've seen people hunt birds with bows and arrows, and rabbits with 22cal pistols? And have you ever heard of shot guns?? Sure you could hunt a mouse with a gun.

    Sheesh, it wasn't like he attacked a mouse with a sword and stabbed his girlfriend, now that would have been ridiculous.

    Only in America do we need guns to kill vermin. What next? Man kills several people with assault rifle in attempt to kill rats.

    No good....I say we take off and nuke the entire site from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.

    anyone who has ever had a brain knows that firing a gun INSIDE will likely lead to a hearing damage. the man is just plain brainless...

    Well, maybe the mouse was armed!:D Good thing it was only a .22, and not a shotgun. Absolutely amazing!

    That's right. Because there are no people outside. You could never accidentally shoot your girlfriend outside.

    Better advice would be this: if you're too stupid to make sure no one is in your line of fire, sell your gun.

    That's right, this guy made up the story about a mouse so he wouldn't look stupid for shooting his girlfriend in the arm.

    I'd say that was ridiculous, but I suppose anyone dumb enough to shoot a mouse in his house would think that was a reasonable excuse for shooting his girlfriend.

    in the construction world ive always heard to solve a problem you "need a bigger hammer"

    well in this case i think the same thing applies, he just needs a bigger gun! come on, a 12 gauge shot gun would sertainly get the job done. the spread of the shot would certainly hit a larger area than a .22 caliber hand gun. that means he would be more likely to hit the mouse!

    EVERYTHING IS BIGGER IN TEXAS!!! YEEE HAAAWWW!!!

    <cough> er sorry, i dont know where that came from. as the NRA would suggest, i would recomend proper gun training and to not discharge a weapon inside a house nor outside a proper range or hunting area.
