Ah pistol my educated American friend. Guns, women and alcohol, no wonder there are so few of us left. But I rather like the company I find myself in.
Last weekend there was a fair in my town. I didn't go but did pop into town briefly with my kids during the day. There were crowds of young people trying to look rough and tough (never heard a shot fired in anger). I heard several eastern european languages I couldn't identify. The crowds included drunk young men and women swearing at the top's of their voices, with children close by. There were 'new age' hippie types openly smoking pot.
I looked around and thought, these are not my people. These are not the people I grew up with, things have really changed.
I took my son aside and asked if he would rather be here with these folks or at one of our Arms Fairs or shooting clubs, with the 'Gun People'? He gave the right answer.
