I'm pretty sure I could help skew those numbers even higher if I was included...

Should at least be as many guns as there are rooms in a house. I follow that model and have a couple more for the cars and to carry. You never know...

You collect guns like I collect guitars.

Couldn't help noticing that one of the places you list as your location is the home to Glock. I'd be willing to guess that city probably has higher numbers as well..

Its not Minneapolis, is it?

They have a 'factory'/shooting range in Smyrna, and it is creating quite a stir since it is in a residential neighborhood.

One of the main reasons, the Japanese never even thought about a land strike on the US mainland.


It is what has kept a war from our shores for so long.

Umm....

(90/100)*300,000,000=270,000,000
270,000,000+1=270,000,001
270,000,001/300,000,000 = 90/100

Wrong.

You have to get several. Once you buy one it won't take long to understand that it's like eating potato chips....
