I'm not sure why? ... I saw it posted up on their FB page the other day; it said they do a run of them, if there was enough interest

I can see usefulness as a demonstrator/training piece to show how the FCG works, but otherwise it would appear counter-intuitive since each hole is a hungry little mouth screaming "FEED ME DIRT AND DUST!"

Not a fan of the skeleton at all.

I would however be their huckleberry. Great line from a great movie.

I also have a fondness for a lot of other movie lines.

See if you guys know where these came from:

"Do you feel lucky punk?"
Dirty Harry-Clint Eastwood

"Fill your hand you SOB!"
true grit-John Wayne
Yes, I'm "THAT" guy

You should really watch Tombstone if you have not already seen it. Really good movie.



As for the ghost gun, you just have to see it for yourself to believe it.

Oh absolutely John! On my personal list of 100 greatest movies of all time!

Another great western that makes my top 5 list is True Grit with Jeff Bridges. It stays amazingly loyal to the novel unlike the earlier John Wayne version (Which is still a good movie it's self).

Back to the subject of the thread. I wonder how strong that receiver really is? Around the hunting camp things can get bumped or tripped over or even stepped on. Do you think it is strong enough to handle the daily wear and tear?

they make them from polymer plastics ... I'm guessing I'd be strong enough.
