Actually, nothin' says lovin' like a 12 gauge rifled slug out to about 70 yards. Just my opinion.
Slugs to 100m on hun's heads, no bother

MP5s to 100m too



but they would not cover Adrian's lawn.

I'm told that everyone else's always tastes better.... no matter how good yours are.

I've scoffed a few 24hr ratpacks and found them entirely edible.

Living from them in a bunker in Afghanistan - well, no wonder our troops want something different for a change.
