    Gramps with a few black rifles

    My grandpa a few months before he left this crappy world, with a few black rifles. I think just to say one more time, Come and take em.

    Never upset old men--if they are too old to fight, they will just shoot you.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Looks the same kind of pose my Gramps made pictures of only he was holding his trusty 45 ACP 1911.

    He was a serious man, but joked when he thought he could get a laugh. A vet, a blue collar, simple guy. And yes, he would have had no problem pulling the trigger if it came to that. I sure miss him. He didn’t watch the news or read the paper the last few years, if he had known what was actually going on in the US, he would have been really pissed.

    Yeah--these old timers just hate all the bull. And they like to drink beer and talk about old times. Definitely frown on what is going on now in Guberment.

    I'm somebody's Grampa. You're good on most points, but the World is not crappy. It's great to be here. Every day. The alternative sucks.
