Monkey Mondays in America

When I was down in Chicago earlier this month, artists Mark Bello and David Carter took my pacifist Canadian ass out to the gun range for a some Recreation American Style. Mark insisted I start off with nothing smaller that .357 magnum (hollow point bullets, no less). The kickback and noise resulted in some amusing flinching on my part, as the following movies show.

While it was an interesting experience, shooting in such a sterile environment wasn't the thrill I thought it would be. The range actually reminded me of a gutted bowling alley. Next time we're going to shoot rats at the dump instead.

The Movies:

Rob fires the magnum for the first time with hilarious results

Rob fires the Magnum at a Monkey target
