    The Enforcer 110 is now what...4 seasons old? Other than the 191 length, it seems like the sizing was in line with the 93 and 100 prior to 2021?

    You still have those 105 LPís? Did they ever get mounted? If you plan on keeping those, there is probably no need for a Katana 108.

    So good and so deep today at Stevens. It snowed all day long with cold temps and free refills in the afternoon. 193 Shiros were the weapon of choice and perfect for conditions.
