    "That guy couldn't hit the broad side of a barn..." (< accuracy)

    "He got a "Maggies drawers" on that shot!" ( <accuracy ,a "Miss" on the target... used on military ranges ( USMC anyway))

    He is "long on powder, short on bullets."..( < loudmouth with more talk than fight)

    "Keep your powder dry.". ( <a "fare thee well"/ goodbye saying. common sense)

    He is "faster than greased lightning./faster than a rattlesnake." (< speed on the draw)

    "That rifle/pistol "kicks like a mule"! (< recoil)

    "This is my rifle, this is my gun( male anatomy), this is for fighting(rifle) , this is for fun!(gun/male anatomy)"
    ( <Military for using proper term for equip. (USMC anyway)

    "He took off "loaded for bear." (< ready for a fight)

    Hope those apply here for this topic... I will leave some for others.

    I see others have posted while I was typing. But I will leave these anyway...
    2nd Amend./U.S. Const. - "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."

    "A man ought ta do what he thinks is best" - "Hondo" Lane.(John Wayne)

    Like when you're at Camp Perry, and you blow out the spotter in the 7 ring, that was there from your previous shot.
    Before you criticize another man, you should walk a mile in his shoes. That way, when you criticize him, you'll be a mile away from him, . . . and you'll have his shoes.

    Where does the phrase "the whole nine yards" come from and how does it relate to firearms etc? curious
