L'Argent Turonistanique

When Americans apply for a visa to visit Turonistan, one of their most frequently-asked questions is, "What's the current rate of exchange?" And the answer was always an easy one: "We use American dollars in Turonistan." Makes it easy when everything in a foreign country is listed in dollars, right?

Well, not anymore.

Sadly, the Turonistani Bureau of Engraving and Printing has just announced that we have cut ourselves off from the U.S. dollar. In fact, the B.E.P. has been closed and henceforth all currency will issued by the Turonistan Armory.

It seems the U.S. dollar is about to take a precipitous fall, and to protect citizens of Turonistan from this devaluation a new currency has been issued.

What's a .20-guage shell worth? And how exactly am I supposed to fold these up in my wallet? ;-)

You missed the .243 $2 cartridge!

I wanted to have a 50-BMG and maybe something like a .600 Nitro Express, but they're not part of my "battery". How about a new wildcat: the 1.00-caliber "Benjamin"?
