Even in '89-'92 a friend of mine and myself would bring our shotguns to school. During noon break in the fall we would carry them across school grounds down to the river where we stashed his canoe. Spend the hour shooting ducks and bring them back to the Athletic dept. and clean them up on the large tables in the training room.

These days suck the big wanger!! I feel sad for my son to have to grow up during the time of mass panic.

I then asked the Lord: "Why was there only one set of footprints?"
He answered: "The terrain was beginning to constrict and our hit time was coming close. So I put us in a Ranger file."

I hate my generation, I really do. Sometimes I think, "why did my parents have to wait 15 years to have a kid?"

Then I realize I can't change history and I move on to more productive thoughts.

Well Ranger Bravo57, to start that's a '70 Challenger, first year. Beautiful example of one, to say the least. :wink:

But I see your point. Anyway, who doesn't love a clean Mopar? Challengers, Chargers, Cudas, Roadrunners, and the occasional 300C Hurst Edition... oh shit, I'm drooling over my keyboard. :mrgreen:
