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. Have an awesome weekend my friend!:)

    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!
