    SS, thanks for the good link. Fox didn't mention that Eric's wife, Sandra, also an active duty veteran, will be on her first Olympic team this year.

    I would like to add the link: http://www.nbcdfw.com/news/sports/Wounded-in-War-Josh-Olson-Heads-to-Paralympics-as-a-Shooter-160448505.html
    to show that it isn't just able-bodied people training for the Olympics. I recently saw Josh shoot two perfect 600's at USAS Nationals in May. You won't find a tougher soldier or competitor.
    The IPC and ISSF are in talks to start including shotgun events in competition, too, and they should be starting soon.

    When he wins the Gold Metal.....let him retire on top.

    Hopefully he gets involved with SCTP (or the like) and inspires the next generation of youth shooters to reach for their goal/gold.

    if it has to do with shooting the mainstream(drive-bys)media, will only cover it if it sheds a negative light on gun ownership.

    Fox News is different! that's why liberals hate it!
