Windsor County, VT – Last Friday, local hunter, Tim Biebel, went 0 for 6 while squirrel hunting with his son, Sam. Biebel blames his equipment for the poor performance. Just before the hunt he had chosen to swap his trusty single shot .410 shotgun for a Gamo “Hunter Sport” pellet gun.
Some have suggested the shooter is the one to blame, but Biebel disagrees.
“Me? It’s not my fault.” He claimed. “More than likely it’s because of a bad scope, or the heavy trigger pull, or a bad batch of pellets. It was windy too, and there were a lot of leaves on the trees – they haven’t fallen off yet, ya know.”
The only witness to the shooting debacle, Biebel’s son, Sam, could not be reached for comment because he was sitting in first grade spelling class, but sources say he was so fed up with his father’s shooting performance that he had resorted to whacking low hanging leaves with sticks and jumping on rotten logs by the midpoint of the hunt.
“The Gamo is going back in the safe,” Biebel commented emphatically. “I need to hunt with something that has a large margin for error. I can’t stand the thought that my son thinks I’m a bad shot.”
At press time, Biebel was contemplating calling Gamo and complaining.
