Even while taking a shower.
Keith Mohr was in the shower last Friday morning when he heard a loud crash and his wife screaming that a deer was running through their townhouse near Sugar Grove.
“He did a lot of damage … a lot of damage,” said Mohr, 71. “I just chased him around for probably 10 minutes. It looked like a (Charles) Manson murder — blood everywhere.”
Mohr, who lives in the 0-99 block of Hillcrest Drive in the Prestbury subdivision between Sugar Grove and Aurora, said he eventually grabbed his a golf club and struck the deer, knocking off an antler and breaking the club in the process.
I’ve seen a deer, I’ve even killed a dozen or two in my time and I’d much rather go up against Bambi with a firearm then a Golf Club.
Now that brings up the question of “What gun for showering”? I myself would favor a handgun. They tend to be relatively light and easy to carry around. You could easily outfit your shower stall with an extra (large) soap tray to hold it or you could hang it around your neck on a rope (right next to the soap).
The next question or rather, next two questions is (are): Revolver or Semi-Auto, Blue or Stainless Steel? Either will do, I suppose, but a Stainless gun might last a little longer or at least look good longer in the somewhat hostile environment of the shower. I guess you could have a large vat of WD-40 in your bathroom to dip your gun in afterwords and just hang it up over it and let it drip “dry”. Or you could “Bag” your gun and protect it from the water but waste precious seconds removing it from the bag when the
Zombies, UN Peace Keepers deer invade your house.
Alternatively you could use one corner of the shower and stand a surplus Mosin-Nagant there. Just make sure the cosmoline is out of the bore and I think the rifle would last forever.
I suppose the very enterprising individual could mount a gun rack in the shower, just to handle contingency’s of this sort, but the simpler solutions offered here will probably do for most.
