That's what I like about my P90. If I ever have to empty it, and use it for a club, I don't think it will break.

My buddy used to carry a S&W "K" frame 357. He said it weighed about 2 pounds and used it more than once as a "S&W Sammich".

Default Another one of Boo Boos.

I had an apple tree that was in full bloom, and they forecast a frost. I took plastic wrap and put over it, and tied it around the base of the tree. During the night, the wind got strong, and whipped it all around. The next morning I took the plastic off and repacked the dirt around the base of the tree, but it died anyway. Moral of the story, don't wrap trees is plastic.

Yeah, a tree can't breathe inside a plastic bag.
