Wisdom from those that have gone before us

Post by ed »

We can learn from those that have come before us. One A.L.A. Himmelwright was a noted writer and shooter during the early part of the past century. In his book "Pistol and Revolver Shooting" (1906) he gives good advice for shooters that truly echoes down the years.

It does make you wonder WTF they were up to in 1906 that would warrant an admonition in a book.

Reminds me of the time I was buying wasp spray, (and yes the nest was right next to a power line), and yes I read the can directions on this "organic safe" wasp spray, before buying it, and noticed it said in large print "THIS SPRAY IS NONCUNDUCTIVE", and I realized just how somebody found out that bit of information.

I mean, I assume previous unsafe version WERE conductive, and my fertile imagination could just see the terrible consequences that led to the improved and safer version

I mean, it would be bad enough to have 220 volts grounded through you, but what would happen to the spray and the can? Considering the previous non safe spray was not only conducting, it was also FLAMMABLE

Seems there is a marketing opportunity easily remedied with a slightly different set of instructions.

Audiences were astounded to see her shooting out a cigar from her husband's lips. . . .

Well, for mine it was more of a hobby. It didn't really bring in an income.
