Shoot as many as you can before they breed this spring. Not very good eating. Be careful while hunting them because they have been known to shoot back. Also you need a really, really big dog to retrieve them. Try not to kill too many in one spot because armed angry men in black armored Suburban’s show up to check your license. Wal-Mart doesn’t have the North American Drone stamp yet. I am on the list for one. At least that is what the sales guy said, something about being on a list.
Its here...Must be real.

And the inverse:
A good guy, on a trotting horse, can't be shot by a bad guy, also at a trot, with a shotgun, taking a bead and a proper lead, at point-blank range.

In the '70's powerful and accurate concealable snub-nosed revolvers in the hands of a Manix, Barnaby Jones and Cannon could shoot defenseless snipers off of rooftops from 100 yards.

And now a commercial from anti-gun Lynyrd Skynyrd...

forgot to mention this in the last post:

"the M16 was designed & built by Mattel toys." a childhood friend's dad was in the army in the early 70's & that was the rumor he heard at the time & had passed on to us as kids in the 80's. I didn't realize till I saw a feature on M16's on the history channel that it was a very widespread rumor because mattel made a very realistic toy copy of the gun

Hmmm.... I do..

There is a reason the SEALS (the last picture you have) still use theirs. The Medusa will withstand shooting it underwater and that is something the Reeder or Korth can't do.
The Medusa frame is 28 Rockwell and the cylinders are proofed at 86,000 psi per cylinder - don't try that with your Colt or Smith. The Medusa was simply the strongest system on the market.

Arisakas are junk... (Oh wait... Im suppose to encourage that one.... )

But all they can hit in the saloon is the bottles behind the bar and the mirror.

I really like this one: All your going to do with that little .25 pistol is piss the guy off.
Funny but no one will let me shoot them with my .25 to find out for sure.
I admit it's a up close and personal weapon but 1/4 inch holes will let stuff leak out. ( plus I have 7 rds. to punch a bunch of those holes. )

As a gun collection grows, so does the likelihood that the owner will carry out mass murder...
