    A Purple Heart has nothing to do with being a woman's color (unless they earned one!)Read what is says! Most of the time it was bleeding red!

    I will shoot it proudly just as I did when I earned it>>>

    Thx Bill

    Thank you guys!
    I will say something I don't normally talk about.
    It was during the Tet offensive, we were hit with rocket and mortar fire. Next
    came a human wave of approx 2000 NVA regulars. Our guys were running
    out of ammo, I ran through the gauntlet dropping ammo as I ran. I made it through
    the first time, but didn't make it though the second time. I was hit in the
    chest and really thought I was going to die that night. Our guys held the line at a
    cost of a lot of my brothers. I received a medal of Valor for doing what I
    had to! This gun is in their memory! I tear up thinking about them.

    It will go to my son when I'm gone and he will always be proud to own and shoot it.

    Cuban and MIA you guys are two of the best!

    Bill

    99% of the guys who see this see the real meaning of this gun. Those who don't well then don't comment. Bill is a stand up guy and I for one shoot with him on a weekly basis. He earned the PURPLE heart. Cant wait to see this in person. Shoot it with the pride you deserve. Thanks for what you DID and what you still do. Your friend Corey. P.S. code5coupe you should be ashamed.

    Some people don't understand and that's fine, not worth the effort.

    Bill,

    That is a great looking BT100 and thank you and the countless others for serving this country so that we can enjoy the freedoms that we have, like trapshooting.

    May your misses be few and far between.
