    Did your reading skill fail you? For those shooting CLOSE range,Yes they are!
    Now go back to your thread giving folks good advice,.., oh wait, you don't:busted:

    I think it was Gene wensel that started the used tampon craze?

    This thread is making me sick....

    Lol.

    Some nasty guys on here.

    I can’t remember any gimmicks I may have bought into but I’m sure I have at some point. Good and smart folks are always trying to get the edge in whatever they do. Gimmicks or not.

    I googled for gimmicks and hunting inventions. Didn’t find anything.

    You try so hard. But consistently fail. Please put me on ignore rather than make yourself look foolish over and over again. You are only fooling yourself and it seems to be too easy.

    Hmmmm, not one mention of the butt out tool?

    I never had one but I have seen threads where they are called gimmicks by some and a great tool by others.

    I fall into the camp of it being a great tool if used correctly. But, it will make a real mess if you don't get it right.

    I've also heard of several people who either bought this or received one as a gift thinking it was stupid that actually turned out to really like it.

    You're not being serious are you? Oh let me count the ways, allow me to go up in the attic or the hunting room and I'll show you some gimmicks, my favorite are from the state fair they are always hand made and make perfect sense after visiting the beer tent.

    Hahaha this got me thinking, how cool would an “as seen on tv” collection be? Check out my mint unopened box of banjo minnows (which I still can’t figure out why they wouldn’t work). **** now I’m going to start buying the stupidest stuff I can find
