Re: Less gun control , more social distancing

Fentanyl has its uses. Problem is that it is incredibly addictive to recreational users. It is deadly to those who are not used to narcotics. It can make you stop breathing.

Re: Just a sittin here and browsing for my next gun. need advice

I have two MKII Rugers, a Colt Second Model Match Target and a ' 59 vintage five screw S&W 17. The Colt is the most accurate but I shoot the Rugers more often and have less than $200 into either of them. They are just fun pistols and utterly reliable.

The MFGs have to keep people interested in new stuff. That's why they don't make '64 Mustangs anymore as much as we wish they did. Companies that don't adapt to the marketplace fade away.

By the way, I think it's kinda cool. I'll take one in .35 Remington please.
