Gun Appreciation Day


I would like to express my appreciation for the following guns:

A Smith & Wesson Model 10 revolver, a Browning High Power pistol, a Model 1911A1 pistol, and an M14 rifle—these saved my life at one time or another while I was serving in Viet Nam.

A Colt Detective Special revolver, a Smith & Wesson 645 pistol, and a Winchester Model 1200 Stainless Police shotgun—these have kept various situations from becoming life-threatening by forcing aggressive people to consider the cost of further aggression.

A Thompson/Center Contender pistol, a Marlin 1895 rifle, and a Browning BPS shotgun—these have put free-range organic meat on our family’s table.
