Why the little boy hammer? Why the glancing blows? Show me a 16 pound, not oz, sledge and hit her straight on, then I'll be impressed.

glancing blows ? serously ? what ever! .... do that on the original tin ... In fact .. I will .

I have a unit comming in .. I'm hoping to have a digi vid cam .. so I can do some bashing and comparing .


It's OK though .. in business school I was taught "you can not please everyone " ... The 1 % I can live with .
