Welcome and thank you to you and your family for their service.
After the world returns to normal ya' all should come out to one of the "Shotgun Shoot Outs" (clay shoots at Wildlife Management Areas). LOTS of fun. You don't need a shotgun. Just bring clays and shells. Plenty of people will share.
yes it is.. sent it to a "smith" in Louisiana.. it was one of the ONLY times I ever sent my gun out for work.. turns out this guy had some hobbies.. and decided to pawn it for $200.... and then sold the pawn ticket to someone else.. that went and picked it up.. it was a real mess.. they didn't charge him because he ended up having a stroke shortly after he screwed me.. the detective said we can charge him.. but no judge will put him in jail.. he would be dead before the trial..
so they recovered the gun.. and shipped it back to me... I honestly never thought I would see it again..
