    Some pretty sobering images there.
    There are only three types of people in this world. Those that can count, and those that can't!

    Lest we forget. Onward.
    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!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    You are right Jakewire, but for Ryan giving rise to this thread it would have slipped by unrecognised for this old soldier. It really is not good enough and I cannot say enough just how much It pleases me that a young man like Ryan has such a deep and meaningful commitment to remember and keep focus on such historically significant events. Big ups to you Ryan.
