    Everything that happens is either endurable or not. If it’s endurable, then endure it. Stop complaining. If it’s unendurable . . . then stop complaining. Your destruction will mean its end as well.

    Cool! .38-55 is a really neat cartridge. Enough poop to knock over a deer. Are you going to use black powder?

    Those 1885's are really neat rifles. The octagon barrel gets my attention every time. Enjoy
