Reply Matt in FL says: July 9, 2013 at 14:05 This post is useless without (silenced) gunfire. Still neat, though. Reply In Memphis says: July 9, 2013 at 14:17 If you shoot a mime, should you use a silencer? Reply JeffR says: July 9, 2013 at 14:24 Slightly off topic, but Illinois now officially has a concealed carry law. Reply S.CROCK says: July 9, 2013 at 14:31 Thanks for the info. No I don’t know which is worse ca or ill Reply BRN169 says: July 10, 2013 at 09:24 New Jersey… Reply Don says: July 9, 2013 at 14:29 Suppressed lever guns are so cool! http://youtu.be/YXc0rm6dzVs Reply Ing says: July 9, 2013 at 15:25 Awesome! I have a new goal now. Man, I love leverguns… Kind of defeats the purpose a bit, but I love the sound of those suppressed supersonic rounds ripping their way through the atmosphere.

Reply jwm says: July 9, 2013 at 15:57 A lot of guns come to mind when somebody says suppressor. A .30-30 winchester is not one of them. neat anti varmint rifle for a long island estate.

Reply dark alley dan says: July 9, 2013 at 18:28 Roosevelt the First was the most badass President you folks ever had. I hold him in the same high regard I hold John Moses Browning (PBUH). And so it irks me to hear that gentleman refer to him by his first name. We know from history that President Roosevelt hated “Teddy”, and I imagine that unless you were in the tent next to his and six days out from the cabin at which point you might be able to call him “T.R.”) most would refer to him as “Mr. President” as per accepted decorum. I can’t see calling any head of state, alive or dead, by his first name. Seems too damned familiar. But maybe that’s the old stereotypical Canadian politeness coming through… 🙂 Reply mountocean says: July 9, 2013 at 19:47 For those who insist on overly familiar forms of address, Mr. Roosevelt was sometimes called “Theed” for short. Reply neiowa says: July 9, 2013 at 20:04 TR was a snake in the grass. PR loving egomaniac of the John McCain model. The prototype for the modern American progressive statist. Browning was a GREAT man of actual accomplishment. Reply Robert Farago says: July 9, 2013 at 20:16 Agreed. This book will change Teddy worshippers’ opinion of the man (e.g., he gave Korea to the Japanese). Reply Dyspeptic Gunsmith says: July 9, 2013 at 22:38 Exactly so. The more I’ve learned about TR, the lower he has sunk in my estimation. TR was early in the seemingly never-ending plague upon the American public of inbred, Little Lord Fauntleroy know-it-all pecksniffs out of the Ivy League schools. TR ran for office when he was only a year out of Harvard – in other words, he never accomplished anything of actual note on his own before he started planting his snout in the public feed bunk.

It’s almost hard to take in there are so many guns with stories in there. The Cafeteria there is quite good (and cheap!) as well. Definitely the highlight of my DC trip. Reply Dyspeptic Gunsmith says: July 9, 2013 at 22:39 People should study and learn quite a bit more about Petersen. He doesn’t have the PR machine of today that JMB has, but Petersen was a fine gunmaker and designer in his own right. Reply Write a Comment Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
