Shooters with...

Trap season is upon us once again. Kev, Andy and I shoot trap. Miss Kat does not. She's much to dignified and...girly to shoot. She has absolutely no interest in shooting.

I still think we could get a shirt--full sized--that says "Watch out for Shooters with Hooters."

That would be a...
