Rekindling an Old Flame

I must have been about 12 years old when I first became aware of her. My dad—who had absolutely no interest in guns or the outdoors—would occasionally relent to my incessant pleas to go shooting and take me to Red Larsen’s Indoor Range behind the hospital in Torrance, Calif., where for a couple of bucks I could borrow a .22 and shoot a hundred rounds or so. Most of the loaner guns were worn out .22 rifles, but on one visit none of the rifles were available, so Red let me shoot a revolver.

Anyway, the story goes something like this: Gomer goes to the range, and on the first shot his rifle comes apart, leaving him with a gash in his forehead. Subsequent analysis shows he had 66 grains of powder in his .30-06 case, rather than the 56 grains called for in the loading manual.
