Funny that mine released with no problems.

kind of like pissing off the back of a moving sailboat. most times no problem. but when it is a problem, it can be lethal. as kids we use to carry blasting caps in our pant pockets. real dumb move, but we did not get blown up. or the time we fed a black bear a tootsie roll. kids expect things to always work, since they always had. adults know better.

Re: Crime in the Bahamas

Ladies and gentlemen:

This thread is about crime in the Bahamas and their government's increased efforts to police same. It is NOT a thread to air your personal opinion about firearms.

Re: Crime in the Bahamas

Yep...Everytime the word "gun" is mentioned...it goes to a gun thread.
