  5. What did you do in the reloading room recently?

    Did you bump the powder charge a bit? Or do you think the issue was the gun?

    He’s kissing. Who am I to think I could stop such a force of nature? Well there are 2 open spots for the seminar as a Karma. No one is jumping on them. @Broccoli Iglesias you're going to have to step up the game and offer your famous Swedish foot massage.
