Christmas morning 3 years ago I woke up extraordinarily early because it was Christmas. Walking into the hallway, I saw the Christmas tree all lit up with tons of presents under it all different shapes and sizes. I went to my brother’s bedroom muttering saying, “Hey wake up you sleepyhead.” Then we went downstairs and woke up our parents jumping on them. My mom’s growled “What time is it you bunch of crazy people?”
“It’s Christmas morning!!!” Slowly my dad rolls out of bed.

The second time that I opened the barrel i made sure it was pointed away from me because they were sorta hot when they came out. But it still felt awesome. But because it was a 22 there would be absolutely zero kick. So that's why when we got low on 22 shells i blamed my brother. But that thing had a 20 gauge barrel at first I could only shoot like 3 shells at a time because it was a short barrel. So they have more recoil and they can hurt like all get out. But know that i've gotten stronger so I can go through a whole box. That's when it starts getting expensive. Because I typically buy me shotgun shells in 100 round
