I like technology too, but whatever happened to the working man's rifle?
Is it possible I am turning in to a cynical "rifle curmudgeon?"
Today's generation of kids do not want to be like their dad and grandpa. When I grew up I wanted to be like my dad. I wanted to have what he had. But today's kids are being taught at a very early age that dad is wrong. And I think that is sad.
As far as the new stuff. Well it is simple. The people want something different than dad's. So why not supply them with it. Then charge $40-$60 for a box of ammo too shoot out of it.
The working man's rifle is gone simply because as Americans we have become too rich and overindulged. Our forefathers could only afford one firearm for the whole family. Now we have dozens. I know I am guilty of this.
There really is no such thing as pinching for most people any more. If that was the case then we would all be casting our own bullets for an MZ. So things are bad out there right now. But not when you compare it to historical standards.
And if anybody is hungry and can not afford to eat then stop by and I will cook up a batch of deer steak and fried potatoes. Tom.
