Re: CV19 Vaccine

Some would think it is a good idea to check the ingredients for something that is being put straight into your bloodstream.

It seems like making it mandatory is taking it a step to far.

The issue is not the vaccine, it's the unknown to us agents inside it and the biometric ID2020 that will follow.

Looks like they "re-discovered" the .351 Winchester Self-Loading.

In the video from the SHOT show, something looked wrong with the AR magazine. Is the 350 Legend a "Long Action" and have to use a AR-10 size receiver?

I'll stick with the 300BLK and 357 Maximum.
