  1. Does Governor Sarah Palin have an FFL? I would love too see her on the cover, or in the oval office.

  2. I’m guaranteed not to be chosen by Brownell’s. My video would be simply the clip from Gran Torino in which Clint Eastwood looks down the barrel of his vintage rifle and growls “Get off my lawn”. With my own face photoshopped over Clint’s. That’s what my happy-happy-joy-joy self turns into whenever I see unwelcome interlopers (two legged or four) on my property.

    • Dang this HTML. Ya miss just one single symbol in the setup, and the whole thing goes to crap. 😐

  3. I haven’t done that since modeling tools for Montgomery Ward just before they went under. This might be my big chance!

  4. This sound like an opportunity for Possum!!!

    Possum, where are you? This is your moment!!

    • “Possum, where are you?”

      Hiding in a ditch, waiting for you to go to bed so he can root around in your trash can for your table scraps… 😉

  5. Make it worth my while and I’ll wear a bikini. But I don’t put out on the first date!

  6. Brownells needs to spend more of their time/effort on getting/keeping items in stock vs playing with their publishing toys. Much worse off than Midway.

  7. Zero interest in being doxx’d by Brownell’s or anyone else. Best to steer far clear of such things in the current times.
