    Nothing is wrong with Petzal's writing style....pretty much classic outdoor writing...it's the CONTENT that's the issue...every once in awhile he apparently goes off his meds, forgets who he's working for and writes what he REALLY thinks...as is evidenced by his most recent contribution.

    Maybe some Dutch courage from a hip flask, so he gets frisky......

    Wonder how Petzal feels about the fact that his beloved bolt-action rifles only became popular after they were adopted by major militaries of the world?

    Manufacturers market what's selling, and make what sells profitably. That's why we can buy newly-manufactured Savage 99s and Colts Woodsmans.

    And displaced lever actions by returning combat veterans that used those bolt actions to kill people.

    Hell, the lever action was a military gun as well.
    Not for long and only by Turkey. 1895 Winchester. Limited use.  Hard to use a lever action in the prone position.  And really difficult to clean.
    Not too many problems you can't fix

    The trend toward militarization of the firearms industry is probably exactly what's needed at the moment. Varmint hunting is likely to get very popular soon, but the varmint infestation is worst in the area of Washington DC and the critters wear 3-piece suits and have a definite affinity for expensive liquor, vulnerable interns (male and female), and other people's money. Once the herd is thinned appropriately, maybe us sportsmen can get back to hunting 4-legged game!

    I realize this is an "old" thread. I either missed it or failed to remember it. In 1775 the flintlock smooth bore Military Musket with Bayonet was the contemporary state of art "Weapon of War" when the Bill of Rights became law in 1791 it still was. In 1861 our Tennessean ancestors (preceding us by 4 generations) were armed with the percussion rifled Military Musket with Bayonet which was the contemporary state of art "Weapon of War". I'm confident they made good use of them attempting to resist a tyrannical government.  As usual we comprehend why "The People" who were, and mostly still are "The Militia" actually do need these AR and AK contemporary "Weapons of War"!

    I read the article, and I got tongue in cheek "GET OFF MY LAWN" from it. He was just bashing everything including the weather for not being the same. If you hadnt figured it out by the time you got to getting reassured that there were "booth babes" you should have picked up on it by then.
