I found a P38 in the buttstock of an M1 I received last year.

Participating in a gun buyback program because you think criminals have too many guns is like having yourself castrated because you think your neighbor has too many kids.

Definitely aimed @ lowest common denominator.

I always get a giggle from the "ROCK OR SOMETHING" illustration.

I knew a Navy Seal while in school at William & Mary in the early 70's. His name was Rod Meade and he was a retired USN Lieutenant Commander but I'm not sure what teams he served with. He didn't talk about it much. Rod was only about 5' 6" tall but he was built like a brick outhouse. When someone commented on his physical condition one time he told them he weighed 210 pounds when he was with the teams. Not an ounce of fat on him! He gradually got down to a more normal weight while in school since he didn't need to be so intimidating.


Anyway, he introduced me to another (younger than he) seal on campus who, at one point, got drunk, "borrowed" my car and proceeded to total the car by running head on into a Pinto. It's a wonder the Pinto didn't burst into flames and consume him in a massive fire that Pintos were known for.


Ah youth!

Pintos had to be rear-ended to create the fireball.

I brought my cat to the vet yesterday and there was a guy sitting there with his dog. The 3 women who work there were talking and the one said that her son was coming home on leave from the service. This guy had to weasel his way into the conversation and eventually told them he was "Special Forces Recon". Really? I was thinking more like REMF.

I have nothing but respect for anyone who was in any form of US military. I myself have never been but my Father (Army) and Father in law (USMC). My Grandfather (Army) was a WW2 vet. 1 Uncle (USMC) 3 tours Vietnam and now fighting for his life with C. They are saying it was caused from agent orange while there.

4 cousins that have been or still in the military that have been to Afghanistan. My Daughter's fiancé was also in the Army and spent time in Afghanistan.

Everyone I know that has not been in the military has nothing but respect for those that have served regardless of what branch or rank. It seems to me that most vets that were in some type of SPC ops do not like or want to talk about it. And that most vets would be on to someone if they were a poser.

Thank You all for your service !!

One of the downsides to liberty is that some will abuse it. DBF
