sorry to hear how you feel ripped. i'm sure there are more then a few vets on this forum and as a bullet dodger i was shot at by arms from all over the world. weapons that my government had sold to the friendlies that were now our enemies, sounds goofy i know. in this high tech global economy nations make arms sales and then the arms are fronted to another nation within hours. remember, guns don't kill people and neither do the manufacturers; only people do the killing. my friend was shot with an M-1 carbine but i didn't wrap mine around a tree when i got home or condem the maker or seller. hey that's just life. hope you'll get through this. good luck to ya!
