 I used to go to the gun shop and look at their used rifles ( some of which I traded to them ) and I would look at my former guns and get annoyed that someone had put a scratch on them!!  Loco

    Got married in Feburary so the anniversary wouldn't interfear with any hunting season or Knob Creek MG shoot. I'm guilty of more of them than not, but I've known I was a gun nut before I was old enough to buy a gun.
