    Like many on this Forum, I can barely sleep thinking about the destruction of our planet from Global Warming and running out of space in landfills.

    Fortunately, I discovered that I can reduce my carbon footprint and limit my landfill utilization by recycling vintage Jostam pads on to my favorite shotguns.

    I know it is enormous sacrifice, but I felt I had to do my part.

    And, it's a lot more fun than giving up two-ply toilet paper.

    It is quite comforting to know that there are others out there who, like Mr. Gore, are dedicated green weenies and will sacrifice a goat if necessary in order to save a liter of fuel or a stocking of coal. I too, am doing my part by reducing the number of trips to my local foo-foo drive-thru coffee house where i usually order a 12oz, extra hot, double mocha with a bit of whip and 2% milk. My next step is to go to 1%, but that's a giant leap.

    Reloaders are the original recyclers.

    I can only hope that the wood is the recyling of an old growth forest
