I spell dinor diner because of this forum, but dinor is just plain wrong, even if it is on every diner in town
But that's another thread
Thanks.
As far as I know (or care), you guys spell things the way we used to before Europe influenced us....

The guns look stunning. (I think I spelt that correctly!) :-)

What annoys me is when some writes "colour" and "labor" in one sentence.

Thanks, Fi.
It's laminated birch. Laminate stocks make more accurate rifles than solid woods because they aren't affected by the temps and moisture as much.

Pac, the gun is a beauty! Love the way the two different woods are layered. Like a yummy cake. Can you tell I'm craving sugar?
