It took years for the man to build his reputation before he lost it through talking about his areas of ignorance.
I won't attack him now. But I won't accept his mea culpa as making everything forgiven and forgotten either.
Actions not words and the prospect of years of effort to restore his reputation.
I'm a hunter and a shooter. Been known to scare the occasional clay pigeon as well as shoot a duck now and again. I've used a pistol to defend my life. I'm a gun guy. To a point. I guarantee there are many more guns of which I know absolutely nothing than guns of which I am knowledgeable.
But you won't find me pontificating about those guns either. Not in public. Not in private. Not drunk. Not sober.
