i thought scope bite scar's was ID for background checks when buying a new gun... ive never had it happen. yet. my sister did when she was hunting. she got the deer but, when she went to tell her hubby he reached up and wiped off the blood with a giggle.. wasnt bad just a little cut. but i think thats the only time i know of.
I have been a silent witness
to all of America's finest hours.
But my finest hour comes
when I am torn into strips and used as bandages
for my wounded comrades on the battlefield,
When I fly at half-mast to honor my soldiers,
Or when I lie in the trembling arms
of a grieving mother
at the graveside of her fallen son.
