    well he went full on hard.
    he got both the bulge and a bonus ring.
    it's all an educated guess,,,, till the trigger is pulled.

    this opinion brought to you by mister low-tech solution..

    That's a 'centralizer ring' for shooting in a 45/70....

    It's a multi-caliber load for the Asperly Aimless.

    I knew you needed a laugh and you made me giggle a lot too. I have to ask him if he has any more with a fore skin, that's a great one.
