You read a story like this

And it makes me feel kinda puny to be glad I only had to shoot the 30.06 when I want to.
I'm glad I wasn't part of the "Greatest Generation", or the WWI, or of age during the War of Northern Agression.
Yes- I admit it, I'm a wimp.
I'm spoiled and I know it.

I shot the M-16, in the Navy, and can shoot it all day long.
I'm glad I wasn't subject to the tender mercies of a Boot Camp Sergant or a Marine Gunny with a bolt action mule kicking my shoulder for 8 hours in boot camp. If I was involved in the "Late Disagreement", I would have shorted the powder charge to save my shoulder from the .54 Cal recoil.

Yes, I am a wimp.
