Hal, lol, hell of a story.
Don't get me wrong, I don't carry LRN either...grandfather also pointed out that while they worked okay, people think they're supposed to fall down so they do, it wasn't something to be relied on; they didn't work great all the time...so shooting people more was their solution.
We had a long talk about ammunition selection when I came on 50 years later. lol
