Cave Run Lake... Untold by T.W.

Something Taylor didn’t hit on about the camping trip was that I bought a bb gun at Wally World jus before we left. We got there and decided we’d see how accurate and powerful this thing was (750 fps with a scope that needed no adjustments). We were putting holes through pieces of tree bark before hank rolled by as I hid it in the back of the jeep. Later Dustin, Sok, and I decided we would try to hit a marshmallow off of a stick, with a backstop made of the holy, holey tree bark. As I positioned myself to take the first shot Dustin says your not going to shot from that close are you…so I backed up, when Sok says you can’t hit it from there…so I stayed. I was confident that this scope could not have changed. I took aim, waited for it, and shot. The next thing I heard was natural, the pop of the gun, but after that there was a snap of a tree branch (I didn’t aim at) followed by a loud pop. As we stood there stunned, a light came out of a tent about 50 yards in the forest shining in our direction. We quickly ran and hid the weapon. Apparently the tip of the gun had been bent upwards when I put it in the jeep, oops.
