    I just finished a phone call I made to someone that I met here on TS.com. I had a great conversation with a person that I've call friend but only in emails or here on the site. If you haven't had the chance to do the same, I would recommend that you give it a shot (so to speak)it was great talking to someone that until now I've only emailed. I'm going to try it again soon

    Trappy suggested I try an Apple Pie with my meal...and you know what? I did, and it was really good.

    Such a nice young man.

    Mr Repeteclay flew halfway round the globe to shoot in the New Zealand National Championships...I figured the least I could do was drive the 5miles to say "Hi". Cheers-Graham.

    Thanks for saying so Shane (or Erin?)

    I shoot with Old Goat, gcbluerock, and KS-OKIE regularly.

    I've spoken with Tron on the phone, and he did a little stock work for me.

    I've even met and talked to the infamous Sober Sooner/Prince of Darkness a few times.

    Face to face, I've met Recurvyarcher, pheasantmaster, shootlow, Hauxfan, shotgunfun, stockguy, once fired, dennisw, Flalagarto, and some more I can't think of right now.

    Yes, but not to the extent that Pheasant Master and Recurvyarcher did.

    It is nice to meet them face to face at a shoot and find that sometimes their screen personality is really different than in real life. I have not met a bad person yet. I just added 4 to my list while at the Grand this year. Shooting allows us to make friends all over this great country of ours.

    On our trip back east to visit some people my wife met on line we stopped by and had dinner with Devi and Martin. Still going back west we stopped and saw Foggy for dinner. Got to shoot at a few clubs on the way. Bigunn came up and we shot a few rounds here in Sacramento. I travel to Oregon every year and shoot with Gary Pack(packman13), fun guy. All super people. don q

    I never give up the opportunity to offend someone in person! Posts, PMs, and emails just don't have the same effect! I'll be sure to put a few of you on my "hit" list. Maybe they'll let me out again one day. :)

    Yes, I would say that I've met a majority of the posters. There are a few with whom I am very close friends. And of course there was one very special one.

    Martin and I will be shooting trap with everyone for about 40 more years, hopefully. We expect to meet more ts.com posters along life's path. We enjoy getting together with people.

    I am currently thinking up a way to get back at zardosforty for scaring the crap out of me at the Grand this year. :)
