SERMON (& I'm NOT a Pastor!)
DAMASCUS USA/Charlton Ltd. honors the 2nd Amendment &, it follows, the National Rifle Association for all it's efforts in protecting same. All the Charlton males were or are Military while the Rob is a retired Cop & Son2 is currently a Cop. Son1 is medically retired Army. WE ALL "CARRY". We all believe the only thing that stops a puke with a gun is a good person with a gun.

Likewise, some (after careful selection!) of those folks watching our precious ones at school should be packing. People, I'm VERY serious here. Our kids need extra protection!!! We live in an evil world.

A thought. ALL our family are NRA Life members. Just signed up three of our six Grandsons on the "Easy Pay" Life program where your C.C. is billed $25- down (per) & then $25- (per) is taken off every three months until the child gets their "Youth Life". ($550- Total). ALL you adults should too!!!! ($750-)

Damascus Waterfowlers
In 2016, Army veteran Richard Charlton and Marine Corp veteran Phillip Armstrong ended there career in the United States Armed Forces due to service connected injuries.

One thing they possessed a passion for almost as much as serving there country and the men and women they served with was the love of all things WATERFOWL. Thus the first ideas of Damascus Waterfowl and Delta Snows began to take shape.
