    Claw…please tell me we have a qualifier for the first X4 DRT multiplier ?!

    What a great day! 3 DRT’s! Great work people!

    Gatson & Moore. Nope, not Butch & Sundance, not the James Gang, not even Bonnie & Clyde.

    (Sigh) Kids today… must have been squabbling over who would get what and how much before they even left with the “take”.

    And how did Gatson shoot Moore 15 times in a row? Did he have one of those high-capacity magazine thingies? I thought they were forbidden fruit or something.

    15 TIMES?! Jeez, he had to reload. I’m not complaining, just making an observation.

    3 DRT. A good day against the forces of evil.

    I believe that it was Louis L’Amour who said “The problem with being an outlaw is the company you have to keep.”

    Phillip Moore found this out the hard way. Some mistakes you only get to make one time.

  6. Deplorable B Woodman says:

    Fifteen shots? There’s kill, and then there’s overkill.

    To modify one of my favorite Tombstone tombstones,
    “Here lies Phillip Moore
    Fifteen shots from a 44
    No Phil, no Moore”

    Not quite the same impact as the original, but you work with what you got.

    Three DRTs….
    “And the world is a more peaceful place……now”
