Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton in California has a weekly newspaper named the Scout.
Mark Lindeman snapped this picture and I thought it appropriate to post here.

I was browsing around a bookstore in the Science Fiction section the other day and a book caught my eye. On the cover was a picture of the "hero" holding a Steyr Scout. The book is Valentine's Resolve, by E. E. Knight, ISBN 97804514619, and is a vampire genre story. You can see the cover picture at the url below.

Do you think the hero shoots Winchester "silver-tip" ammunition or maybe those German "wooden bullet" rounds (which were actually blanks)?
