Beneath Mrswoolybill's Friday upload Recoil Brakes somebody whose river shall remain unidentified (Alan) left the following comment:

Quote: You, perched on a gun barrel... I'd have paid good money to see that.

He received a fair amount of support.
In fact that precise scene was not recorded – I am informed that the lady rode side-saddle – but I did catch this one of the two aggressors shaping up. Is it sufficient for me to claim the swag, I wonder?

Madwoman versus 6" gun.

An unwieldy steadying device for a camera, but needs must.
Shades of Annie Oakley here Bill, you're dear lady is adventurous in the extreme.

Barrel against barrel. The small barrel wins the day. It's good to see Moira on the job, Bill. Good shot.

The gun's playing dirty. No aiming for the crotch! That deserves a red card, really.

Glad you took the shot, Bill. Brilliant.

Doubly glad the gun didn't!

And who says,''size does not matter'' Bill ?
It would not have been as effective had it been a smaller protrusion !!

An explosion of hilarious comments have begun here, Bill, a barrel of laughs, it ought to be put on YouTube. I wonder what else is in the pipeline?

True, a record of that stalwart actually astride the weapon would have been almost too delightful to bear, but under the circumstances I feel it would be churlish of me to withhold a prize.
Accordingly, Bill, you have carried the day.

The epzers' have had a barrel load of laughs at Moira's expense with this upload, I'd be careful though as you could be staring down the barrel when she gives you lock stock and two smoking barrels for uploading this!Tongue
