    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!

    Hunting style clothing has definitely become “fashionable”, especially in the rural sector, and also in Dinsdale. I guess they’re making hay while the sun shines.
    More meplat, more better.

    My missus makes more money than I do, selling sports clothes to people who don't do sport. The markup is unreal, there's no barrier to buy (license), it doesn't go stale, you can buy em for kids etc etc etc.. Clothing is a hell of a racket, they'd be mad not to

    I was in the Botany store on Thursday and there didn't seem to be any more clothing than the last time I was ther (about two years ago). Different style of clothes though maybe.
