    THE OUTDOOR WIRE DIGITAL NETWORK SPECIAL BULLETIN

    The Riverside, California Sheriff's Department has recovered four-time Olympic medalist Kim Rhode's shotgun. Police officials say the gun was recovered during a routine parole check. According to Rhode, the gun is in "immaculate" shape, although the competition stickers she had collected during her shooting career had been removed. "I can't believe it," Rhode told The Outdoor Wire only minutes after the gun was returned. A complete report in tomorrow's edition of The Outdoor Wire.

    Wow...I'm forced to admit - maybe there really _is_ something special about this Barack Obama guy. He's only been in office a week!


    I bet he finds Osama Bin Laden by Valentine's Day.


    Yours in Change,

    Evidence in a criminal case is not usually returned to the owner until the case is adjudicated. Are you sure it was returned to Kim? HMB

    Since Kim is a living legend, they may have given her the treatment she deserves.

    Being California and all, I am suprised the liberals here didn't try to call it a "public niusance" and have it destroyed!

    Wouldn't it be great that if from the added notoriety the theft brought to Kim...that the press would keep following up on her..like front story news when the "Returned Gun Wins Championship in Germany!!" Keep it going with them Kim! this might be a springboard to better things keeping our guns and sports viewed in a positive light!!

    Kim,

    A living legend, where the hell did that come from ..? lol ... She's a pampered shooter and like most pampered athletes she gets a lot of credit for what others do or contribute to her being what she is today ... If she had to get a real job she would starve ... WPT ... (YAC) ...
