    It's on the USA cable channel, those times listed are local Torino time, just subtract 6 hours from those times and that's when it's on live on the USA channel.

    nigga when you're going for the gold, you spare no expense


    it looked like the bolts were spring loaded, and they just pulled them back with their finger and let them fly forward...

    kind of like a single shot semi-auto, but with a magazine.

    I find that very hard to believe, england still lets you own long guns. Hell, Eley is located there.
