Decimation

I was trying to come up with a good pun for a title, but this is the best I could do.

I drove down to Glen Allen to check out Green Top Sporting Goods. GT is a venerable gun-and-tackle store and over the years I've bought a lot of things from them. Today the excuse for my visit was to get some 10mm ammo. But there was none to be had!

Green Top does have some interesting history in a display case: one of their first bills of sale for a firearm, from 1956, when they were called "Green Top Service Station." And, from December 16, 1968, their very first form 4473.

So, I consoled myself with a couple boxes of .30 Carbine and moved on.

Moved on up the street about two miles to the Bass Pro Shops Superstore shown above. But they were out of 10mm, too. So I had lunch in their Islamorada Fish House and watched the tropical fish in their aquarium.

So, any improvements on the word "decimation" to indicate a lack of 10mm?

The only thing I could think of was that would be a negative 10 on my scale of Missing Munitions.

Sorry,
