Pistol Packin' Mama

What On Earth Triggered This Sign?

Photograph copyright: DAVID McMAHON


After I'd had my passport stamped at the US border at Poker Creek, I asked permission to take a few photographs outside before we got back in our rental vehicle. This was the first shot I took.

Sorry, did I say "shot"? Consider that a Freudian slip. The only trigger I ever hit is the one on my trusty Pentax.

(The Odd Shots concept came from Katney. Say "G'day" to her.)

Son of a gun!

I'm so glad you use puns, not guns, as your weapon of choice. ;)

Were they perhaps expecting Sarah Palin?

Stick to the Pentax, I should.

I've never seen a sign like that before. Too funny! Have a wonderful week David!

Oh my goodness! It does make you wonder what "triggered" it indeed!

Ah, this sign brings a tear to my eye! We had a sign in the jail...Officers only allowed Weapons...not that the prisoners paid any mind! Like Sarah Palin, I'm a dead shot, though! lol

Was there a post office at the border?

Katney said...

Hmmm, another of those things that make one wonder.

Shooting from the lip again I see. So I take it, no guns in the office, but outside is ok. Do you have to take your shoes off as well?

Sadly, someone may not live to regret putting up that sign.

In today's world, the office is a dangerous place to go unarmed!

Say what? (chuckling over some of these witty/cheeky comments)

If the sign said "No illegal drugs allowed," maybe it would have been a pot shot.
