It was slightly different, no biggie. Me and a and bud figured it out. Good times. Lot of gun firsts then. It was cool to b...

Never ever ever,
My sister just posted some super 8 film from 20 years ago.
I want my Luger, Trapdoor Springfield, and Enfield back.
I can't really complain, they, and others, financed a long ass beer soaked vacation.

At 350 and under it is well surgical removal. I also like the 6MM Ackley and have successfully popped a p-dog out to 1200 yards with it. Th...
