I love old shooters. I have yet to meet one that hasn't taught me something that I can use often that makes a difference.

The point where he hands it to him and he just shakes his head and grabs his shoulder is touching.

I saw this awhile ago and was amazed at how humble he was. He can still put 'em where they need to be.

NOW GET OFF MY LAWN!!!

Most of the guys I shoot Benchrest with are well into their 'retirement years'. Age does not seem to be a limiting factor.

A humble warrior made of steel. A gentleman I shoot with was a tank commander at the Battle of the Bulge, and at 84 also, he is made of the same fabric; I fear that fabric is disappearing in our society.

Amazing shot, amazing group!

I dont what it is, but I cant take watching old vets cry, I get instant smoke in the eyes. I cant say they dont make em like that any more, but there are less and less of them being raised today.
