Why God Created the Shotgun

So cool and geeky nano-bot engineers can watch ignorant Marines with high school degrees (and $189 shotguns) blow their precious creations out of the sky for sport. These look impressive otherwise.

Oh, I’m sure these little critters won’t be able to be jammed electronically or anything. But if they can’t be, the Remington 870-P, and the soldier, sailor, airman, and Marine, is in the arsenal. Ducks, dove, and geese taste better though.

I used to love playing Galaga, by the way. Next wonder weapon, please. Semper Fidelis.


Amazon.com thinks they’ll  be making deliveries this way?

    LT Sawick,

    I want to thank you and your marines for allowing me to embed with the
    battery. The article is now up online:


    And here’s a slideshow of some of Joel’s portraits:


    I hope you like the project. Please keep in touch.

      Thanks Maria. I remember praying for this young lad, Lt. Sawick! I’ll do so again.

    Where to begin? LOVE the “coexist” logo that is cool in and of itself while also making fun of the absurd, syncretistic bumper sticker we all see. Also love the Galaga reference. Loved playing that in college. Nearly got kicked out of Aladdin’s Castle with my girlfriend (now my wife) for being too vocal while playing it. She was mortified, of course. I have enjoyed shooting a shotgun at clay pigeons. What a rush!

      Once at an All-Hands managers meeting, back at Logistics Corporate GHQ (former career), those of us who didn’t golf, had a chance to go the sporting clays shooting route for “team-building.” Yours truly won $100 during the Annie Oakley round. Fun stuff. These little locusts and dragonflies are neat, but susceptible to the boom-stick.

    Now … is there a purpose to these little boogers, or did the team develop them just because they could?

    • Frank Weathers

      Probably a military application of some sort. I dunno, really.

    I have that CoEXIST logo hanging up in my office. I am a firm believer in firearm diversity, 8 brands and counting!

    Oohrah! And that’s how you shitcan a drone!

    • Frank Weathers

      At close quarters, methinks they would be as susceptible to the broom as they are to the boomstick.

    “….Ignorant Marines with high school degrees…” was this phrase necessary to get your point across?
