Is anyone out there NOT a supporting member but loves to read the forum? Has the forum ever saved you a visit to a gunsmith ($75-120/hr)? You might consider supporting the forum that helps you!
Plus1!
SM was an easy decision.....
I'm on a few 4x4 forums (imagine that) cause I need to know where to ride and cause they break!

But only this firearm related forum. The Mods and solid members make this one great...I have learned a huge amount about my collection and expected performance, care and feeding, and possibilities of improvement...

Looking forward to meeting some of y'all in September!

I'm not that optimistic, Bob - I plan to lose devoted members unless I can buy off everyone there to keep their mouth shut! but the check has been sent and the shells ordered, so I'm bound to show up!

Whoa, settle down, Buster. I don't know what you could have learned from me. I'm here to learn, not share my knowledge of firearms, which is quite a small amount of knowledge.

But thanks for the kind words anyway.

I wouldn't consider 2010 as "relatively new".

If anyone admires me after the S&H, they are probably blind and didn't see me shoot. But I AM going to have a wonderful time learning, shooting as best I can and meeting new people.

There's a lot more to learning than technical knowledge. One must also learn to be gracious and how to be a peacekeeper. These are life lessons that Winds is aces at and lessons that can keep you smart and alive, especially when you carry a gun every day of your life.

Can we really hope for that many blind people at a shooting event??? Keeping them in the club house while we shoot is the only hope.

Between the two of us, we're going to equal one person. One can't hold a shotgun up for very long, the other can't stand for very long.
