US Repeating arms owns Winchester rifles and Olin owns the ammo. Its not a private company so she is lying. Actually USRA is owned by a belgium company Herstal group. Who also owns browning name.

I go to Winchester, KY every year and never seen any signs that they
have claims on Winchester! MarineStud, make up a good one for her.
Let the joke be on her!

I've been to Winchester house in Californy, where Olivers daughter squandered his fortune in a 30 year construction project. She believed as long as her house was growin' she wouldn't die. It didn't work. I don't know how the Olin family got hold of the company. The only Winchester ammo I have is for the .35 Remington, its the only brand I could find.

BC, all the southern boys make good Moonshine!
Here in Fl they make strawberry wine!
In Georgia they make BoJangles Peach wine!

Out of all the places I have tasted in Ky, a guy in winchester, Ky makes the best I have seen. Goes down like water, but instantly makes your stomach feel like its on fire.

Good stuff.

It's hard to find some good moonshine. We have some we brought back form West virginia. I used to buy it over in Saudi but the stuff we used to buy over there could peel paint.
