Hey!!!!!! Wait a minute, I didn't get no magic BB's.
Who's got my magic BB's?
Oh, wait a minute, I don't got no stinkin' .380.
As an aside sgb, your new Avatar has me buffalo'ed.
What have we there, some of Cousin It's long lost relatives?
Cute though, for sure!
I would rather die with good men than hide with cowards

It is always an interesting case study to read about. I still feel just fine with a 9mm though I prefer Speer Gold Dots over Silvertips.

Well hey, at least Jerry Dove got a road named after him at the FBI facility in WV. It's not much (not much at all), but at least the FBI is honoring his name in some way. Of course the best thing they can do to honor both agents is to never forget the lessons learned from that incident.
You had hardened criminals with a mini-14, a shotgun, and pistols..... they were ready and able ...they had nothing to lose .. on the other side you had some FBI office-types.
