I read most of what is posted; doesn`t mean that I have to agree with it.
Again, your use of the word `offensive` is wrong. It seems that you are really talking about a matter of scale.
Just because you stick to your guns (for EVER) doesn`t make it true every time - especially when you use the term `system` in relation to Gribeauval`s rickety collection of obsolete, cumbersome guns with over 20 different sizes of wheels. A child in Kindergarten could have done better.
