Mixture shops are always interesting though. When I was in college I worked in a Marine parts store that also had a nautical art gallery attached.
That makes sense to me. I had a friend who made sculpture out of scrap metal. In Emerald Bay at Catalina Island is one of his works called "Marine Assemblage."

My hope is that maybe someone goes into a gun shop to buy a new killing machine and gets inspired and comes out with a Ramirez instead.
All this time I thought I was making music; it was making me.

And Tchibo was always fun. We used to have them in Britain. I don't know if we still do. No, not since 2009.

I used to be a competitive shooter, and I can tell you that once you reach a certain skill level where all of your shots go in the X ring, shooting gets a little boring. I didn't know that things like bump stocks even existed. I quit shooting competitively because I got bored with it. Then I discovered classical guitar, and now all of my spare time is spent on playing CG, and it is much more stimulating. You also meet a better kind of people, when you play classical guitar. I've made some new best friends through CG and this website. I don't want to get political with this, I'm just saying that guitar, especially classical guitar, is more enjoyable and satisfying, in my opinion.

I bought a set of Laurel and Hardy videos and recently noticed the logo on the corner of the introduction screen. An Eagle and the letters NRA. That seems an odd combination . It`s National Recovery Administration .One of Roosevelt`s ideas . Nothing to do with rifles . I`m glad I looked that up .
