    500-grain Hornady into the second vertebrae. Sounded like a tree falling when the 'ol stink bull went down. The shot was between 35-40 yards. it fed a whole group of villagers.

    the giraffe does have a terrible smell but smells a whole lot better than the corrupt hag clinton does.

    Got to love FA revolvers! Can't get enough of my 475! This is my newest toy, traded a guy last week. Performance Center Smith 629. Can't wait to get rid of the POS tasco red dot and replace it with a proper piece of glass.
