Re: is the heat off yet?
No it has not, I think we're all just a bit in need of a break. Obummer is still trying to issue exec orders, and turn it over to U.N. control.
Keep in mind the animals we shoot for food and display are not bullet proof. Contrary to popular belief, they bleed and die just like they did a hundred years ago. Being competent with a given rifle is far more important than impressive ballistics and poor shootability. High velocity misses never put a steak in the freezer.
