Well, 8shots, has the black, Commie government re-named anything else in the past 24 hours?

Why is it that every time some Commie government.....or Black African government.....come to power that they RE-NAME everything?   


I expect the Democrats will do the same here in America soon......




Washington, DC will become Obamagrad.......

Ed, it never stops.

Even I don't know where the hell I am most of the time.

Street names, buildings, airports etc now all have names after the Struggle Heroes....whatever that is.

What the heck is that??!! I used to drive through Ventersdorp several times a week and eat lunch there sometimes...

Are they going to rename Potchefstroom? ...or just the Municipality?

OR Tambo is the airport. Can't help thinking A Timol might have been more appropriate ;)

I found out in Africa that it was a status symbol to have a scratched up rifle....is that correct? 8shots and Glock?   

I met young fellows in Orkney who showed me their rifles and they were all beat to hell....and they were proud of their SAKOs being beat to sh*t....



  .....do you find that as being true?

Ed, only the Klipdrift and Coke Brigade would be proud of beat up rifles.
I would say a few that use their rifles as tools...eg hunting vermin or culling game, may be proud to show how much their rifle has worked and it still shoots. But for the average week end warrior or range warrior it will not be so.
We, I count myself into this group, are proud of what we own and take good care of our equipment. Most of us get rather pissed off if the rifle gets scratched accidently.

Actually not such a bad drink...not quite my taste. Mostly a mix for the roughneck Afrikaner.

It is brandy with Coca a Cola as the mix. With ice of course.

Yeah, but you would have tried to sell screen doors to submarine builders.
Life's concerns should be about the 120lb pack your trying to get to the top of the mountain, and not the rock in your boot.
