    There are all sorts of people that profess Christianity as their religion that believe in some wild things. Reincarnation would seem to be heretical. There are people that will wave a bible or some other books to bless the things that they do. It is not a bad reflection on the religion, but more on the heretic.

    Does anyone else feel an old warhorse wants to talk to you?

    Yes I collect military firearms. It is like a big jigsaw puzzle to me. Finding the cartouches, when it was made, what damage it has. I have a CMP M1 carbine that came back from the Austrian constabulary and has an embossing tape with a last name on it. My type 99 was found in a cave on Tinian by a friend of mine in 48.
    Common sense is not a common virtue!

    Yes, I was only interested in historical firearms initially. I was not interested in tactical shooting until 9/11/01 which led me to places like warriortalk
