And there was peace.
Owner says, with CCI ammo, no misfires on that gun. I may have to spring for one, even though I was kind of holding out for a Papoose, but nobody seems to have them in stock here.
AR-7s are OK, but if it was me I'd hold out for the Papoose. And a possum is a marsupial, not a rodent.
"The rifle itself has no moral stature, since it has no will of its own. Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles."J.
