Ok, I gotta ask, was there more to the "kaoticklown" story than the original posts about his alleged trip? I've read several references to him recently and thought he was pretty much a non-entity, is there more to his story?

The boy also had some real anger issues judging from the e-mails he used to send me...

As expected, he never did actually go on his walkabout.

If the young man is lucky it will be very quick. I really don't like getting my hands sore.
Did I mention I am rather fond of the M14 series of rifles? Looks like the M21 may be sold to a deserving LEO in Oklahoma though.



Oh wait, I just found the solution to the problem. It is the AA-12 Combat Shotgun. The good part starts 46 seconds in.

As Christina said, I keep my blog PG-13. cool

I'll say this though, the look on his face when he realized where I had keeping the ID currently in his hand strongly indicated the rest of the evening was going to go downhill. Luckily some in the group were skirtless rather than pantless and... whistle
