Semi-retired like Vito Corleone before the heart attack. Consiglieri to J.Kb and AWA. I lived in a Gun Control Paradise: It sucked and got people killed. I do believe that Freedom scares the political elites.

  1. Fun Fact:
    Quite a few of the guns we call “match locks” were “tinder locks” that means they had a small piece of tinder sponge that ignited the powder in the pan.
    A match was still used though to keep the tinder smoldering.

    Also the first match locks preceded the model shown by ca. 100 years.

  2. And here I thought you were going to say “pokey sticks.” After all, once you get past bare hands / teeth / claws / bad breath, the rest is details. 🙂

Only one rule: Don't be a dick.
