And if you really want to get their attention.....


Then use a bigger hammer. A few years ago I had a business that sort of migrated to a handy man service. If you got the money, I will find the time, kind of. A coworker with a positive aversion to manual labor asked me to give him a price for painting his house. He mentioned he might barter a rifle for the work. It was a brick house. I researched the rifle and found it to be worth about fifteen hundred dollars. Needless to say, I went for the brushes.


So for about forty hours work I acquired a Browning "A" Bolt in stainless, with the boss system. It was topped with a Leopold 4 to 14 Police Sniper Scope. The rifle is chambered for .300 Win Mag


With a 165 grain bullet and a sand bag, I can hit a dime at 100 yards. On the first shot anyway, after that it becomes a process of will to soak up the punishment, it needs to be much heavier.


That was my first rifle chambered for "an A$$ whuppin' in a box."
