in 1994 I used to have a shop forman that's get all wound up from upper management meddling in shop, he'd get very agitated, as I was a gun the month type I'd get selected to drive hime in the company truck to the gun shop where he'd buy 2-3 bricks of .22's and 3-4 boxes of .44mag, I was free to bring a .22 or my own stuff, then on the clock go to the city dump and blow the hell outta stuff......only in the Arctic can you create your own reality
was those times I got to shoot a Highstandard police bullpup shotgun! the Calico110 and the Tek 22 and all manner of semiauto rimfires Grendel P30 hand gun and the AMT automagII and the S&W 629 and the Colt Annaconda.44mag and ruger .44carbine, soviet SVT40 and 30-06 FN49 and the .308 MAS49/56, Norinco AK's with 75round drums, Russian SKS, ChineseSKS, M16A1 and the Thompson M1 and the German MP40(gun shop guy had a class III dealers ticket) and with some sweet talk he'd somtimes let ya hose off a few rounds
