I wasn't trying to offend anyone. No nation that goes to war is a nation of cowards.

Of course there is also this;

Anyone who makes comments about the lack of valor on the part of the French is simply uninformed:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maquis_(World_War_II)

I like the part where the Germans made a point to surrender to allied troops, as most of the Maquis had no use for prisoners....

Ignorance, correctable, stupidity, forever.

My wife is French; both boys are dual citizens. Over the years they've been subjected to a great deal of bullying (they know how to deal with that) and a large measure of ignorant harassment from idiots. And the comments above about the French are about as stupid as one can get...and they cheapen this board, It makes you wonder if the posters are teenagers, if they ever went to war themselves or if they ever studied history.

By the way, if it weren't for Lafayette and the French Army/Navy, America would never have been a country. And let's talk about Verdun, Austerlitz.

About a mile or two from where I sit the second bloodiest battle in the Revolution was fought in 1779. The Siege of Savannah was a failed attempt to oust the British from Savannah by the Whigs (American independence fighters) and French forces led by d’Estaing. The attack consisted of French subjects from what is now Haiti, France and Arthur Dillon’s “Wild Geese”, Irish Jacobites who fled Ireland to France. The British, aided by Hessians and Loyalists, defeated the Revolutionary forces, killing more than 1100 men including the Pole Casimir Pulaski, the father of the American Calvary. 650 French were killed. Not only was French active participation crucial to the success of the Revolution, but their passive presence in the Caribbean kept British forces from concentrating forces in the colonies for fear that the French would seize the British possessions in the Caribbean.

Are we all that easily offended?
I will try to be more PC and insure any stereotypical humor is historically accurate.

Fitting adusted, hardened and installed in the stock:



Much better than a clanky old swivel, although, I use those also. This is just so much more beautiful. And quiet.
I don't remember seeing one on a gun that was engraved, however. Geoffroy does nice work. Glad he suggested it.

Best,
Ted

Beautiful gun, Ted. I need a Darne sling for my lowly Model 10 but so far haven't been able to locate one.
