Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

That's a true story right there. That 24 pound spring is not effing joke. It requires all you have in your grip to rack that slide and chamber that next big round....

Like it or not, Cane is doing the right thing by keeping those serrations...
