A-huntin' and a-shootin'
I love browsing strange online retail sites for the latest must-have items for disabled people ... and this time I've really come up trumps! A US store called Grover Gear - their slogan is "We Got Ya Covered!" - has a couple of items for sale that caught my attention. First, there's the Millet Window Rest: these are mainly intended for disabled people with mobility difficulties who like going out and shooting things. Made from a "soft, yet durable material", the description continues:
"These window rests are great for disabled hunters with a 'Shoot from the vehicle' permit. Makes for a nice soft spot to rest your gun on, and no worries."
But that's not all. You simply must check out the Wheelchair Hunting Covers (scroll down the page for the details). Available in traditional camouflage or forest pattern colours, these stretch right down to the wheelbase, thereby allowing the armed and deadly wheelchair hunter to successfully fool all the animals they're about to shoot into thinking that they're not really there!
At this point, I'm tempted to say "only in America" - but then I might upset some of our transatlantic visitors, so I won't. However, Crippled Monkey would like to remind Ouch readers that you need a licence to have a gun, and that they're very dangerous too, innit?
