I'm not interested in how or where a weapon is made, as long as it does the job it needs to do and I know how to use it.
As long as it fires ammunition and you've got lots of it, that's all you should be concerned about.

Nice. Very jelly.

But FALL? I just went out to the mailer box and noticed (on top of the allergies I've been suffering the last few days) how many plants are blooming or budding!

Global Warming?! Will I be able to grow orange trees in my back yard this year?

I haven't been following the news... Are the temps and moisture unseasonable?
Sure seems like it to us down here. Bigly.

Hows the wind? Do you get dried out (really) which is to say, find that your thirst has increased?

Thanks, it's nice to be somewhere that has lots of fall colors. Now that I know where to go, next year I'll be out with the camera the entire fall, not just that one day these photos are from.

No difference. Similar humidity to east Puget Sound.
