    [QUOTE[/QUOTE] Shooter, I can't remember, are you a reloader? If so that's a double bonus. Great lady. Treat her nice. Don't make her reload more than 500 at a setting.
    :rolleyes:

    If you decide to sell off your 5.56 brass give me a price and a holler, then I will either holler back or duck and run, ok?

    Thanks
