Howitzers are not that rare. I raised two myself.......

Re: Guns on a Boat, Yes or No?

Turtles tend to carry salmonella, which is why circuses and fairs that used to sell cute little turtles to the kids, haven't been allowed to sell them for ages in the US. Juvenile salmonella is suspected to also lead to some bigger autoimmune problems that can cripple for life. So, carrying turtles across borders? I'd have to be a nay-sayer on that one.

If you're talking about the turtle, he may be "rare", but he sure ain't "shy". We've had some exceptionally high waters on the Saint Johns River lately, and when the tide carries him over the bulkhead, he climbs up the pier ramp and lays there for a while. We've also got a Moccasin that does the same thing, but not at the same time.

If you're talking about the Howitzer, I don't actually have one. I'm saving up for a recoilless 75 mm like the one on the tank.

You must be kidding. There are lots of places where gun ownership is higher than in the US.

An emotional relationship doesn't have to be a loving relationship. Anger and hate are emotions also.

I was not in the Tortoise Brigade........or in Military Intelligence.

Just a mere inexperienced kid officer who learned quickly from the ranks as they showed me how to survive one deck dive at a time.....
