    Wow. Did the math and even though my newest toy, a Henry "youth" lever-action is shorter and holds less rounds than the standard version, I'd have enough for one per each!

    I'm going to be a little unpopular for saying this (I know), but those guys are so cute!

    I'll even agree - they are cute. I read the book Rascal by Sterling North (I'd actually read Wolfling first, another good book) and of course they're cute. But they're still, in the end of it all, RACCOONS. [​IMG]
