    I was (again) trawling through the archives of The American Rifleman and came across this gem in their "Throwback Thursday" series.

    It appears to be, at a guess, originally published in about 1924.

    Kirk (the name is a coincidence, I swear!)

    Interesting story, I love little snippets of history that tend to go unknown.

    We lost a lot at first and they burned the White House. ... umm... I mean... I read that we lost a lot at first and they burned the White House. ;-)

    Peace favor your sword (mobile)
     
  7. Just as I suspected!!!! I had all the clue's lined up, but needed one more for the final proof.

    But I do have one question for you now that the cat is out of the bag. Can we now call you Duncan or the Highlander? Or do you still want us to call you Kirk?

    I'm good either calling you anything but Late For Supper.

    Kirk might have a longer life but, Chuck Norris is tougher!

    Chuck can light a fire off the friction of him rubbing two ice cubes together!

    Chuck can light a fire by glancing at a glass of water.
