One day I will bite the bullet and shell out the money for wild boar/pig. It's so expensive even for the belly here. Sea, I think maybe you've inspired me. I've been thinking since I moved to Louisiana (a right to carry state)* that I should take shooting lessons. That would solve three things. One, I'd know how to shoot without closing my eyes when I pull the trigger. Two, I could have a weapon in my home for self-defense. Three, I could get someone to take me to the swamps and kill a pig.
Of course then I'd have to buy an extra freezer, but that's fine.
*A right to carry state is one where as long as you're not a convicted felon, you will be issued a permit to carry a concealed weapon in public.
