    I just sent that picture to your wife … she mentioned some thing about living in the dog house, I did not get all the conversation because of the four letter words……I never heard a woman talk like that ;-  )

    Ill take photos of the window frame tomorrow when the sun is out and post them too. lol I used my dermal to make the one jagged hole a square cut out hoping that my sister (no wife yet) would think it was a manufacturing detail… so far she hasn’t noticed or said any think and its been almost 6 months. If she had believe me there would be a lot of four letter words.
    In my random pest hunting video on youtube when I shoot the squirrel at 6ish in the morning after repeated threats to my life NOT to wake her up again. (Like that is going to stop me from blasting a squirrel.)
    I had to edit out a lot of the sound.  
    I didn’t put the full clip in the video because the squirrel starts spurting blood out of his head and i thought it was a bit to graphic for youtube but the full clip is edited for curse words.
    My logical reason was “I am protecting your plants from the squirrels.”
    Her crazy girl logic said “thats why I put Pepper on top of the soil around the plants to keep them out.”
    My response to her was 
    “So your solution is to season there food and my solution is to put a round through its head. I win.”

    Well I was editing it I played it for her and said “you see how you are.” all I got was a threat not to shoot that early in the morning again.

    Been married for 18 years take it from me there is no defense against woman’s logic so you might as well go all out tell her she peppered the plants and since you are what you eat the squirrels are seasoned and almost ready to cook…..
    P.S
    All jokes aside dude, if you have had three of these oopsies you really do need to take these air guns a little more serous, please be more careful, even a deflected shot can be dangerous.

Omg I laughed out loud at this comment 

    Real answer is the scope is above the barrel with a clean line of sight and you don’t realize the barrel is about 1.7 inches lower and pointing at your window or door ext… And woopse..

    I’ve only done such a thing once. Shooting prairie dogs with my granfather when I was 13. Laid that 22mag across the hood of his truck and took a shot. Immediate ricochet left me confused until I saw the new crease in the hood. First and so far last time I didn’t account for scope height and barrel alignment.

    Lol the window frame is plastic but has a fake wood grain look to it.
    My solution was to take some of the wood grain wallpaper I had used on the outside my neices cardboard box  princess castel.

    I Cut a squair of it and stick it over the hole you would have to look hard to notice it.

    It’s easy to shoot a window frame if you are right-handed and shooing to the right or left-handed and shooting left when aiming out the window. For certain angles, it forces you into an awkward position and it’s easy to think your shot will clear the frame when it won’t. 

    I’m ambidextrous but I used to only shoot left-handed because my left eye is better. It only took one of those accidents for me to force myself to learn to shoot with both hands. 

    Anyone can learn to shoot with both hands, it’s not like writing. I often shoot better with the hand I am least practiced with because I concentrate on making sure my hold is as good as I can make it vs going into auto-pilot. It makes it easier to avoid those accidents.

    It may not happen to all of us, but its happen to most of us.  I’ve shot window frames and blinds trying to be stealthy.  LOL

    About the only woopsy I ever had was shooting a black powder gun inside a closed blind offhand like zebra was talking about, I was shooting at a strange angle and so the barrel was inside the blind. All but one shooting flap was closed to keep my scent from flying around.
    Ever seen one of those cartoons with an explosion inside of a building it pops up off the ground and smoke comes rolling out of the windows…. I darn near killed myself trying to find the zipper and get out of that thing. I swore something was on fire, and could not breath or see from all the smoke. Once out I look back at the blind and swear smoke was rolling out of every hole in the thing.
