damn good reading! i don't know the man, but i have heard of him before around town. i live near Palestine Texas and work there.
The keys to the Houston Warehouse still jingle invitingly in Virgils pocket. The bench, target holder and all-important fan are still there, collecting dust. But although the warehouse stands in readiness, Virgil has no intentions of ever firing there again. Thats not to say, however, that hes through with shooting. Now and then he stokes up his Shilen-built .30-06, and on his backyard range near Palestine, Texas, fires three shots into an admittedly larger hole than he once was accustomed. Then he goes on to other things, and theres a wide selection of these. Even though hes officially retired, Virgil defines retirement as working harder than he ever has at the things he loves to do. That includes his present avocation, raising race horses.
