  1. Was anyone else bothered by the improbable ending to this long story?
    A .22 air gun does not have the power to penetrate a human skull.
    A .22 air gun does not simply fire after loading a pellet. Gas pressure is needed to move the pellet. The weapon either needs to be pumped up or a gas cartridge needs to be loaded and punctured.
    Lastly, air powered pellet guns use rubber seals to contain the air pressure. In a weapon as old as the one in this story, the rubber seals would have dried out. They would need replacing before the weapon would fire.
    Other than that, and the author’s phobia of periods, it was not a bad story.

  2. I’m guessing most people wouldn’t be aware of the logistics around a gun, I certainly wasn’t!
