Mom and Dad had antecedents on both sides of that bloody conflict. Counties were split, towns were split, and families were split. It was never as simple as being the north versus the south.

The Preacherman says, "My advice to you is to get yourself a gun and learn how to shoot." The Gunman says, "My advice to you is to get yourself a Bible and learn how to pray."

Ammo run

Forgive me for I have sinned. I am very passionate about BUYING GOODS MADE IN THE USA, but I recently made a choice to save money by buying some ammo imported from the Czech Republic. Domestic ammo is becoming prohibitively expensive.

There was no reason for me to add to the ammo cache; barring extraordinary events, I should have enough ammo to last a lifetime of regular trips to the range. Still, can one every have too much ammunition? Maybe I should place just one more order…

Sellier & Bellot .45 ACP with 230-grain full-metal-jacket bullet, Boxer-primed, fully reloadable brass case. Rated 853 fps at the muzzle and 371 foot-pounds.

I have heard good things about this ammo. Sometime during this week, I hope to burn through some to see how it performs.
