Your inability to fill the hole completely on a new moon is because the moon provides less light than it would on a full moon.
So as you shovel dirt back into the hole, you end up missing because you can't see the hole. You'll f...

Safe or unsafe gunhanding had nothing to do with the case or the verdict. Ignorance of Florida's justifiable homicide statutes had everything to do with it.

A 9 hour class isn't [u]required[/u] for renewals.
But the rules require the instructor to cover a specific list of topics -- which is the same list of topics that are required for first time applicants.
