Well, I like all my .22s threaded for a can, but wouldn't mind a vintage pistol for non-quiet plinking. I have an old .22 Bolt gun & an old Remington pump .22. Both are really old and really nice. No threading for them!

You should be ashamed of yourself!! You haven't introduced him to the Genius of Mel Brooks??

Spaceballs...
The Producers...
Robin Hood: Men In Tights...
History of the World: Part 1...
Young Frankenstien...
High Anxiety...
Blazing Saddles...who can forget "the Boys"...or the baked beans scene...or "Let me whip this out..."



You simply cannot deprive a teenage boy of the joys of Blazing Saddles...and the Boys...magnificent pair of actors...bouncy, too!!
