    I’m 70, and I don’t feel old enough to buy either one. As you’ve no doubt guessed, I don’t live in Texas.

    Now, hear the boy out, dad. He might want those items for completely innocent activities. ;-D

    I dunno why, but in profile (see third panel), Calvin’s head looks just like a Pez dispenser!!

    But anyway—he SERIOUSLY needs psychiatric help!!

    oookaaaay. I have to admit, I’m curious. I would probably let this play out until I knew what the little nimrod had in mind. Sort of like the FBI, but sooner.

    The innocent look on Calvin’s face in panel 2 made me laugh, and gave it all away.

    Given the increasing frequency of gun and explosive events, this one is bitterly ironic.

    I’m old enough to buy firearms, but I don’t have a permit. And I can’t get explosives: I don’t have a license. To get a license, I have to show I have a need for their legitimate use in my work, which I don’t have. I also have show those who will using the explosives have proper training in handling, storage, and use.

    I wonder. If there was a book made up of all the C+H strips that wouldn’t be acceptable to print by today’s standards, how big would it be?

    My dad taught me to shoot at 5. Had a .22 with a “my sized” custom stock.

    Taught me hunting at 8. Always supervised.

    When my dad and his brothers were around Calvin’s age, they found a box of dynamite sticks (this was a hundred years ago) and blew up a tree. Calvin was just born a hundred years too late.

    Calvin’s Dad actually thought they were going to have a father/son bonding experience.

    My Pops taught me how to shoot and he bought me my first .22 at ten, he also taught me the important skill of launching a tin can with a well placed “Black Cat”. In old time free California no less, today a firecracker could land you in jail.

    Feel bad for Dad watching him in frame 3 building with excitement over the thought of bonding with his son, and knowing the inevitable deflation that will happen in frame 4. :^(

    In the second panel, you know Calvin acting innocent like that means he’s really up to something…

    This is not what Calvin’s dad had in mind for father-son bonding. (Terrible idea, Calvin!)
