Quote du jour

A rifle has rifling (those lands and grooves inside the barrel), calling a musket a "rifle" irks me. Unless the barrel is indeed rifled, then, if you must, call it a "rifled musket". To me a musket is a smooth bore weapon (which have all the accuracy of a news report on MSNBC. Although not quite as grating on the ears. And nerves.)

    1. Thanks! The same to you and yours! We're just trying to beat the 106 degree heat wave here this weekend. Hopefully it will be down in the low 100's by Monday!
