term of service was 3 years, did they say what happened? I mean 14 is a little early to retire isn't it? haha. 4'11 would have been a pretty big for an 11 year old back then, I mean wasn't the average height like 5'5 or something like that?

haha no im good thanks, it was more out of curiosity then anything. I guess its like all things in life that if it sounds too good to be true it probably is.

Flints

Does anybody have any experience with the manufactured flints? What I am talking about are the artificial ones. I would assume that they are more expensive but if they work well and last longer then it would be worth it to me. Not that I mind fighting with 200 year old technology but if I can make m...
