I really like my dad's Winchester M70. It's a pre-'64 model that's chambered in .270 Win.

The bolt on that thing feels like it's riding on ball bearings.

I'd grab my AR-57. Its the only rifle I own that is in one piece. Plus, my shotgun is insured... and in pieces so I'd more than likely drop part of it on the way out.

Yeah I'm pretty sure that's Government property.

Not sure I would be admitting to stealing a Governmet firearm? Wouldn't be the first war this has happened but not too cool to admit it to a relatively public forum.

A what you don't know is that I would have covered myself in fire retardant gel and the safe too. That way I didn't get burned because I am a professional amateur stunt man (See Why me thread).

All of that would be a problem for me. You see, I sweat gasoline and I piss fire because I'm a Man!

(ok, I got that from a Nashville Pu$$y song)

Who's been steppin'? I think I will keep it quiet until she claims that she is pissing fire. Better that way, doh. j/k

Speaking of stepping, do the vids of the N. Korean army remind anyone of any other goose steppin' turds? Those kinds of displays are funny in my mind. They are meant to scare the rest of the world. Some of the soldiers had rifles and some were totally without arms. N. Korea has no idea...
