As I lifted it to aim at a pop can in the yard, my heart was pounding out of my chest. All those warnings of just how dangerous this was were putting me on edge. I braced myself hard and squeezed the trigger, missing by a mile. My family all cheered and I smiled. It was truly fun; the loud noise, the powerful feeling.
With a smirk on my face I told him I didn’t think they would start us off with drums on our guns. The gun was about seven pounds and at first, but after fifty minutes or so of marching, it felt like forty pounds of iron. After what felt
An example of this would be lines 582-584 "Rainsford took his knife from its sheath and began to work with all of his energy". This shows he is alert by how he realizes that Zaroff will come back so he sets up a trap that he remembered to try and kill him. Also it shows that he is alert by how he sets up the trap so quickly and effectively before Zaroff got back straight from his memory. And finally it shows that he is able to remember things and apply them to his situation. Another example would be when “He thought of a native trick he had learned in Uganda” (661).
Beep Beep Beep ting. “Yessssss I caught him” I shout as I hop around in circles with joy. I bring him out only to find that he's still knocked out… I quickly run to the Pokecenter to heal beedrill. I’m kind of excited, I must be the best trainer in the world! When I reach the pokecenter I take a look around only to see other pokemon that seems so much stronger than mine, and their trainers look better too.
I leveled my rifle and took aim at the last mounted Officer. Bang! My rifle fired as I pulled the trigger and sent a deadly bullet in the direction of the Officer. The Officer’s horse went sprawling, but the last Red Army Officer was not dead. I reloaded my gun and fired another shot at the Officer, I missed.
“Guys, this place is revolting”, I complained to my cousins as we strode into the “Little Bear Gun Shop”. It was my first summer with my cousins in their new home in Oregon and a leisure activity we had since we were in elementary school was going outside in the forests of Illinois and shooting ourselves with Airsoft guns, toy guns that fired small plastic pellets. Despite the new state the tradition needed to live on. The Little Bear Gun Shop’s name definitely wasn’t false advertising since there were enough guns in that place to fully arm a small town, and in the town of Tillamook, this was probably the case. If you weren’t satisfied with your pristine automatic rifle, the little bear had you covered.
Silverman manages to calm Leo down and takes him back to his house. Now if we compare him to who we read about in the beginning, he’s really changed. Leonardo was set on killing two people, and was determined to complete it no matter what. Then we come to the end. Although he was extremely close to committing a serious crime, he was a better man than before.
The sound pierced through the air and at that moment they knew Alexander was dead. The boys were almost through the fence when the guns started to fire again. The bullets were just missing them, but as soon as Josef stood up a bullet struck his leg. Israel was trying to pick his brother up, but was too weak. He knelt down beside his brother and then glanced at Alexander.
“The pine trees towered over me, like a human to an ant. ” I had to include this because even after all the years I can still remember how small I felt, yet I was in awe of the tree’s size. I then once again slightly exaggerated by saying, “I cut through brush with a machete avoiding any carnivorous plant.” I included the carnivorous plant part because while I was thinking about the trip, I remembered how much of an adventure it felt like.
In order to provide for the year-round demand, Johnnie hired trusted friends to hunt pheasants, a majority of the time out-of-season. After a successful hunt, they hid the birds at predetermined locations inside of haystacks, the seemingly definitive South Dakota concealment. Subsequently, Johnnie made regular rounds to the haystacks to collect the pheasants, after which he drove the over one thousand mile round trip to buyers in Illinois. Sheriff Edward Maxwell couldn’t ignore the birds hidden in haystacks, as he did when wayward smoke drifted skyward disclosing the presence of a still. If a farmer occasionally shot a pheasant off his own property to feed his family, Maxwell could forgive the transgression.
Other muskets like the rifle-musket could be fired up to 1000 yards and it was way more accurate than the regular musket. But, the rifle-musket did have to go through the long process of reloading as well. Our weapons we use now are way better and easier to use. For one, we now have clips and magazines that make reloading easier.
They walked through the thin narrow trees for two hours and have yet to find anything. They felt the cold wind creep up on their necks and slowly walk its way down into their spines. The two Tibetans rubbed their own hands together repeatedly for warmth as if they were going to magically start a fire. Lhaygal faced the rifle towards the ground, placing his left hand underneath the old wooden barrel and his right hand on the grip while his right index finger rested on the trigger guard. He couldn 't think on how cold it was because the only thought he had was that he will soon have to end another beings life.
After the first shot, all of what I thought was fear had turned into excitement. It was now or never; kill or be killed. My gun was readied and I pointed it at a young fellow who was probably my age at the most. I put my hand on the trigger and took a deep breath, then pierced his stomach with a bullet.
It soared gracefully the first 25 degrees, then 50, then 90, as the speed increased and the midnight black device with 4 propellers came cornering 130 degrees around it seemed as if something had gone wrong. Control was no longer mine, the satellite connection between my iPad and the drone had been lost. I watched as the device abruptly flew out of control, then we heard a bang followed by scratching and scraping sounds. The little device had been stuck in 8 feet of old rotting
