Privacy Fence

(Pecos County, Fort Stockton, Texas)
A man (woman, teenager) with a gun is not an alien sight.

In fact, yesterday while I was replenishing my bird feeders
_ and supervising the activities of my Pekinese.
I heard a neighbor two houses west of my home,
_ shooting at doves with a BB gun for about a half hour.
By the sound of the voices, it was an adult and a teenager.
The birds were on a power line over the property of my
_ adjacent neighbor - by the way, I don't and won't do this.

My point, I wasn't startled or surprised.
But, it was a little unexpected.
And, shortly thereafter, I didn't notice any police activity
_ in the neighborhood - no one called the law.

Even so, my objective is to remain as stealthy as possible.
With this in-mind ... I keep being drawn back to the Benjamin Marauder.

Moreover, I've not seen any aftermarket barrel shrouds
