Green Dragon - It's the name of a tavern in Boston where some of the Founding Fathers helped plan the Revolution.

I live in the Springfield area.

I like to shoot all types of firearms. Some day I'll try out blackpowder, but it'll be awhile. Blackpowder doesn't seem to make the liberals piss themselves, yet. So I have a little time to get into it.
