Saved ya some cash before betting

his old Marine footlocker Charlie packed an array of supplies. He brought a radio, 3 gallons of water, gasoline, a notebook and pen, a compass, a hatchet and hammer, food, two knives, a flashlight and batteries, and various other implements which made it clear he was prepared for a lengthy standoff. Additionally, he packed guns—a 35mm Remington rifle, a 6mm Remington rifle with a scope, a 357 Magnum Smith & Wesson revolver, a 9mm Luger pistol, and a Galesi-Brescia pistol. Later that morning he would buy two more weapons, a 30 caliber M-1 carbine and a 12-gauge shotgun.

We were discussing it at Tweak's party last night,

Weeds was sure he had an M14, but I remembered a carbine. Luckily we didn't bet.

He may have just been remembering that there was an M14 involved with Whitman, but it was being used to shoot at him, not being shot by him.

No he was adamant about Whitman using an M14.

I always thought it was a hunting rifle.


There is no way he was making 450 yard shots with a M1 Carbine.

The only big discussion I remember was what would you rather have:

Machinegun arms

or

Laserbeam eyes

?

CavVet,
The article says he had that 6mm and the obviously misprinted 35mm Remington.

Rune,
This was a few hours, and a bottle of rum later. The M1 Carbine, and M14 were brought up, and a bet was nearly made. I think somebody mentioned something about a hunting rifle too. Well two out of three isn't bad.

I missed the machine gun arms versus laser beam eyes. I was being too much a pussy to brave the cold for that one.
