    Good evening eveyone. After several years off due to life in general, I am back. Oldest daughter is finally able to take a few setps with the aid of a walker after 15 months. Lucky she wasn't killed in the wreck.

    Got my computer rebuilt, internet installed today and a new laptop charging in the other room. Have been on here a few times but only with a phone. So somewhat limited. Will be looking for another gun soon and hope to be back at busting those little orange devils.

    To everyone that is on here that I have always considered as not only a friend but more like family, I want to thank you for all the prayers and thoughts. Out of everything that I missed the most in the last 4 or 5 years, Trapshooters.com and most of the folks on here are what I missed the most.

    Looks like there has been a major upheaval in the ATA recently, here is to hoping that it gets better.

    Take care my friends and I hope to bcnu all soon. John

    You've been gone long enough that upon your return I would have thought there might be a picture of a boat included here somewhere. lol

    Glad to have things smoothing out for you.

    True. It's not like the good ol' days where any hack weekend fisherman could log on and limit out in under an hour, but there are still a few prized Lunkers to be had here from time to time. On occasion a newbie will ripple in the shallows and hit anything you throw at him....few and far between though.

    Been Mostly here in Missouri but have spent some time in Texas with Nikki. She got to take her first stips recently after 15 months of being bed and wheelchair bound. She has been pretty depressed, not being able to walk after you are used to walking your whole life is a real game changer for anyone. Had to sell off most everything to help her. As is generally the case though, sooner or later the always turns. Kept my hand in the game by shooting alot of .45. My next favorite shooting passtime. Anyway, just wanted to say howdy to everyone. I have seen several of you all on facebook and have added who I found. If you are on face book, please feel free to add me. Listed under John Richard Johnston. Take care my friends and keep your head on the stock.

    Howdy John, Good to hear things are getting better. As the old Tronster mentioned the fishing is a bit tougher nowadays, But an old pro like yourself should have no trouble filling a stringer.
