my marlin is certainly a tackdriver as long as i do my part.
this was yesterday. 8 of 10 shots. as you can see the 8 can be covered by a quarter. the other 2 are still close.
this was at fifty yards. needless to say i was pretty excited. after the filth shot i turned to my shooting buddy and asked if i was seeing things. i said " dude, is that five of five touching so far?"
I have been a silent witness
to all of America's finest hours.
But my finest hour comes
when I am torn into strips and used as bandages
for my wounded comrades on the battlefield,
When I fly at half-mast to honor my soldiers,
Or when I lie in the trembling arms
of a grieving mother
at the graveside of her fallen son.
