How can anyone react except in disbelief when exposed to this description? I'm not saying I don't believe Burroughs, but that my own tentative construct of the universe is so walloped in reading this that my only reaction is laughter.

Weird, but that's what happened when I read this. I laughed.

Side note: the photo you included should be captioned this way: One of us is not walking away from this conversation. I'm guessing you are going to vote that it be me. I'm okay with that.

How could you not believe a 20-yr-long horse junkie? Frankly, even if half of it was made up, there's still that other half. And I have little doubt that Old Bill knew what he was talking about. Also, he got a lot of mileage out of the Unfortunate Accident with his wife--he posed a lot with handguns and rifles and shotguns, but I have a doubt that he would use them. Much. Depends on the target, I guess.
