OUTSTANDING!!!!!
I didn't start reading it until my 20's when my cousin introduced me to BOC's Singer-Songwriter ERIC BLOOM(they went to HS on Long Island together) and he told me about it. Too Bad these days BOC isn't playing 20,000 seat arenas anymore,..they do a lot of 60's covers also(Born to be Wild By Steppenwolf, and Roadhouse Blues by the Doors are among their most famous covers,..as well as Money by Pink Floyd....)...

I only name my premium rifles:

My Sig 516 FDE is "Trauerklinge" (German for Mournblade)
And my LWRC 14.7 inch pinned ceracote is "Stormbringer"
And my LWRC 16.1 inch is "Deathdealer" (from another fantasy reference)

I read the entire Elric Saga as a tween and it really helped me relativize the here and now.

PS: BOC is awesome., their song helped "make" "The Stand"

Lost my job once. The boys were for 4 and 9. I found a new job one month later. I got lucky. I've always complained too much. Maybe I shouldn't.

I'm just bitching, I want to shoot something, somewhere, the thought to hit the range is not only a desire but a NEED... Have you ever lost your collection only to start over?
@33 I've only been busted once.. Only had one gun then and it survived. What I did lose was a 95 GT mustang an 87 5.0 mustang and my house as a result of losing my job.. Boss was also my landlord.. Lotsa lessons learned in that debacle..
Just hang tough man.. The lessons learned from this experience will help you in future experiences. Keep on keeping on.

i had to sell 90% of my guns after a bad car wreck in 1990 to pay for expenses for being out of work and getting a new ride.

One thing life has taught me is to never ever say "never". It's great to think you never would have to sell them but sometimes they have to go whether you want them to or not. And if it ever gets to that point, that's when you'll realize they are just guns and can be replaced. The most important things are family, friends, and good health. Everything else in life is just a bonus.

I consider myself "lucky" that I came off active duty and had already had a job interview while on leave that summer, to go to work in the school system in NYC in a "training on the job while attending college" position in a Spec. Ed. School in the South Bronx....it's all the "Extra" jobs I had trouble keeping......
