    Does anybody watch the "Swamp People" TV series? I have to admit I find it entertaining watching those good old boys catching gators, but I have one problem with it. The condition of their guns are CRAP! I've seen truck guns that have been banged around in trucks for years that look pristine when compared to most of these guys rifles. I realize they are working in a very harsh brackish water swamp environment, but come on, how much trouble would it be just to wipe the rifle down after that day and put a little oil on it. Oh well, guess I was just raised to treat my tools a little better.

    I'd be happy if they'd quit forgetting to load the danged things....and then calling it a 'misfire'.
    It is an entertaining show tho.

    Worked as a civilian consultant for awhile on some US Navy ships. Had freezer burned alligator alfredo several days in a row on an LPD right at the end of a 6-8 month deployment in 2001 or so. Not impressed. At all.

    Always imagined if a dehydrated chicken and a fish had a baby...

    Probably nothing like the 'gator Troy and his kin deep-fry fresh from the swamp. Looks goooood!

    That Cajun food is really good if you get it cooked right. I worked with a guy who lived in Houston who's wife was a Cajun gal. Cooked us up some crawfish Etoufee one time when I was down on business. Some of the best food I have ever eaten.
