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.

  3. I know several australian hunters. One of the most popular cartridges down there is the .35 Whelen. It’s a lot like the .375 H&H in Africa. Powerful enough to kill just about anything on the continent without any more recoil than is absolutely necessary.
