Debating now, not going so well for the antis. Word is that they lack the 60 votes needed to pass anything.

Ok I'm PISSED.

I have some Bass Pro Shops gift cards that add up to $50, and I can't spend them.
They don't have ANY powder, primers, or bullets. There's nothing else in the store I need.

I'd put the money towards a Marlin model 60 or something, but I wouldn't be able to shoot it since people are hording .22 LR. Who the hell hordes .22?

Rant over.

Yup; former client of the firm got zapped by his exwife after he moved to La. with his new honey. There was a reason he wasn't a client anymore, though I was happily not in that loop.

The ammo will come back. Save those gift cards for a little longer.

Ive been trying to look up how to keep the mag follower down on M1917 (so you can close the bolt without rounds in the mag) using a dime or penny, but havent found a discription or video on how to do it anywhere.. Even on the CMP site it said they were unable to figure it out....

I just figured it out.. Should I share my knowlege? or Keep it?....

Muhahaha! (evil laugh)

'Cause Im practicing with the bolt... It kinda slows down your "rapid fire" drills when you gotta stick a "digit" ( ) in there....
