The Parker Hale rifle has always had my up most respect and a good quality rifle. My best friend has one in 243 Win. Caliber which he purchased new back around 1970. I almost purchased one at a gun show a while back in 30-06 Caliber. And it probably was a fine rifle? But when inspecting the bore it was filthy! And the dealer advised he did not have access to cleaning equipment. Obviously rather than gamble, I passed not knowing what the bore was like. But sure liked the rifle and would have bought it! Lets see some pictures of yours!
The Constitution is not an instrument for the Government to restrain the people. It is an instrument for the people to restrain the Government!
Today, we need a nation of Minutemen, citizens who are not only prepared to take arms, but citizens who regard the preservation of freedom as the basic purpose of their daily life and who are willing to consciously work and sacrifice for that freedom."
