And the Lord said "let my people know what a really good gun is."
And the John Moses Browning came to be born,,,,, :D

I love Wikipedia, so unbiased.

I spend hours every day stuck in a crazy Wikipedia vortex. Every article just seems to link to another even more interesting article.

I also share my birthday with the 1911. You learn something new every day. The FEDEX guy just dropped off my Finn M39 too, pretty good day, all in all.

I guess I'll never forget that, now, as it's my work anniversary, also.
