We're pawning off our older models as part of the aid package. We get to ditch our Vietnam era guns with decades of wear and less rifling. We're doing our part to help with the mid-East peace process. Give it a bit of time, the paly's will not maintain those weapons and they will be dependent on Israeli Military Industries for the ammo.

As for the Babe, yeah I'd hit it.

More importantly, what is the SOP MOD package for that? What is the exact brand of the fluid? Does Colt make one? I want one for lifting cars at the range, and one as a collector.

Does the floor jack have a standard rail system or does it come with a carry handle?
