    Just wish to say CONGRATS to my ol' buddy Chopper. Some know Jim as James (Bilbo "BAGGER") VanMeenen. I have been told he shot well at this years Joe Moore shoot in Kewanee, IL. Congrats Jim.

    Yes, this is all in fun folks..... Jim is not a Sandbagger, or Piker. He's simply a great friend, and I'm happy to hear hes shooting darn good.
