Someone shoots an elk on a mountain hunting trip that Karl Malone had helped them arrange and Jerry and Tony walk up to it. "In a split second, this bull elk jumps up and comes at me full bore at about 10 yards. I'm a sitting duck. Your dad, without a blink, steps in front of me, pulls up [his old rifle that he got for $80 at a garage sale], puts a bullet in this elk's chest, and it falls at my feet. I have no chance to even react. I turn and look at your dad and he looks at me and he goes, ‘That's as good as a fast break.'"
I would be more likely to believe this he would have said, "tackles it to the ground and snapped its neck" instead of "pulls up [his old rifle that he got for $80 at a garage sale], puts a bullet in this elk's chest."
If that's only as a good as a fast break, I want to know what would be better.
