Thanks so much everyone! It took me quite awhile to get on and respond, finally had to disable my Norton Security! Shhh, don't tell anyone! LOL This was one shot handheld with luck on my side as they were both looking at me! I think they were both pretty still considering they were worn out from outside fun! #8989
