    I found an old style out on my property the other day that was opened with a can opener. I Gave it to my pop’s. I’m sure there’s quite a few more out there. My old neighbors neighbors dumped a lot trash out there before I bought the property...I’m guessing before I was old enough to hunt. One day (month) I’ll have to clean it up. I found a lot of cool stuff in that pile. Old bottles, coffee pots, ect. No pewter yet. Found an old bike and a 2bbl carburetor as well.

    And now they pay per minute for “talk lines” with other “sexy singles”!

    Shoot, tell the young'uns we used the church keys to dial the rotary phones - infest 'em with confusion.

    You beat me to the draw on whether the younger generation would know what a church key is. Soon they won’t know what a can opener is, let alone a P-38.

    This generation doesn’t even know what a regular can opener is!

    Over in Vietnam I remember seeing cans of Carling Black Label beer rusting away. Maybe the Canadians are still using steel for their beer cans.

    ps....yes I still have my P38!
    pss...a couple weeks ago I asked a young lady at a party if she had a church key....got a blank look
    Death to every foe and traitor and hurrah, my boys, for freedom !

    How many under 30 have ever seen a winder key like on the old SPAM cans or how to open a can that the winder was AWOL.

    A good knife will open any classic tin can, if you know how to use it. Not the best for the sharpness of the blade, but it will do the job.
