Re: When someone asks "Can I borrow a gun...?"

:evil: :evil: I lent out my T/C Renegade .54 to a boss at work about 20 years ago. I made it from a kit. It was returned ruined with rusty barrel, and effed up double set triggers.
Still got it in the back of the closet....Might clean it up and hang it on the wall.

It's simply a reversible speed control, and off.
