    Feel free Miggy - that would be both hilarious and complementary too

    Hey, it's fun being near geriatric and still behaving like a teen (me that is!)

    You forgot one from the accessories list. Even tho it isn't gun related, let's try it.
    German word for bra: Holdzemfrromfloppin.
    A person is justified in the use of deadly force, if such person reasonably believes deadly force is necessary to prevent imminent death or great bodily harm to such person or a third person.

    I'm the first of my siblings to be born in the U.S., German was spoken often in my home growing up... reading that made me laugh pretty hard, and yet it confused the heck out of me trying to pronounce the words as my dad would.
