Blasphemy!

I think its possible, maybe like three of everything could be too much, as for one or two? Never.

You need that 303 and a Garand.

You can never have too many mil surps. I have been telling my wife that for years, and I never lie to my wife.

Actually had that debate with myself last month- did I REALLY want to add to the stable ANOTHER caliber I would have to stock ammo for?

Being a GREAT debater, I won.
