    There is an enchantment cast upon any woman when she
    holds a baby, whether or not it is her own. Similarly, there is an enchantment cast upon almost any man when he holds a rifle in his hands.

    I look at them like I look at guitars. I have a very old Martin D-18 that I hold with greater reverence than any Gun I have. But I collect old American made tools, instruments, & guns. My Springfield Armory Chrome 1911 is an absolute beauty.

    I wish you could experience what it's like being on a destroyer when the 5" cannon goes off. I don't know how you couldn't admire that power.

    But my mom has a Beretta Shotgun I'm pretty sure she likes better than any of us…..
