CH's comment about his skepticism about the Barrett (Side Match Rifle- post) reminded me of my fathers tale of missed opportunity. My father was a young father with 3 kids in Sydney in the early 70's. He was looking for work and started as a manager at a new franchise chain that only just started in Australia ( I think the only two in Australia were in Sydney at that stage). He impressed the owner and was offered the opportunity to start up the next store for the owner and eventually have his own. He turned it down and moved on, "No ones is going to make money out of hamburgers" he said. He still shudders a bit every time he passes by a McDonald's Any regrets?
