I was with him when a gun was fired.
He not gun shy, he just does not understand something is to be hit when the gun goes off. Kinda like the deer in the head light look on his face after he shoots is all I remember.
For a brief moment I could hear nature through all the noise.

All these stories remind me of the story of the guy that forgot his wallet at the restaurant type of thing. By tomorrow nobody's truck will be running. Sonny will not have to guide and save face and he will still get his award. See he is smarter then a possum.

You're not as smart an old coot as you think you are. You called him a clever PUP!!!  When you really should said clever as a marsupial.
Better make sure he had his wallet when you jump in that cab
