Wrong vernacular
« on: September 22, 2017, 10:40:52 AM »
Mr. Nielsen of swaged bullet fame and fortune, used the term firing in one of his recent posts. As in firing ones gun, but the term directly relates to discharging a firearm, hence the root meaning of the term. If we are to follow the same rules of speech, then when we discharge an airgun we must be airing! Sure makes me wonder.

I have an Omega compressor. If you're a fellow Guild member, and you pass through Roswell, NM, I'll fill your portable tank as a courtesy.

here a loose quote ... Here, have a cookie and in no time you'll feel right as rain.
Or take a long walk in fresh air & if tat don't work perhaps a stiff drink.
After a bit you really just won't care  8) 8)
