Ah, memories.

I remember something of the biography of Elmer Kieth. Early one morning, after a long day before of working cattle, Elmer and others were sound asleep in the loft (barn, I think) when the old wind-up alarm clock sounded off. Elmer sat up, drew a bead, and created a cloud of alarm clock pieces partses. Everyone went back to sleep.

Yea, that was this morning for me. Fortunately no arms were within reach. :)

9:30? Good grief, by 9:30 I've been on the job for 3 hours! Years ago, I had to buy a rather spendy, (for the time) clock radio, something too expensive to simply slam on the floor to silence, since that had become my method of shutting up those $4 clocks that were calling me out to my pitiful job.

An armed bedroom is a quiet bedroom.

You forgot to mention that this is from "Alaska's Coolest Paintball Webcomic".

Shooting an alarm clock with a paintball gun has an entirely different set of issues and concerns than does shooting an alarm clock with a firearm.

Nope, Jeff, Doc uses real firearms, too.

That was no paintball marker.

Thanks for bringing this to my attention. I've added it to my daily comic read list, and am LMAO as I work my way through the archives.

It took me three days to have enough spare time to get through them all.

Kinda makes me want to take up paintball as (another) hobby.
