    I went shooting with my friend the Big Chubby yesterday on the way to the club he said if I did not like his driving to let him know he would let me drive. I asked why he said that and he said his Doctors determined he had a stroke which affected his sight. His peripheral vision was seriously damaged and he was clinically blind according to tests. He does drive slow and careful but I could not tell by his driving but his wife does drives most of the time. He just had his eye lids lifted to help with his vision which is mostly straight ahead only. He is up and down and has reached the 27 with this condition and is a one eye shooter we were tied after 2 rounds at 47 on the third round he went straight and I shot a 23 and he said how does it feel being beat by a blind man. He is such a ball buster and fun to be around but I lost a lot of face going to the club and having the guy rub it in will be difficult. The only hi light was I had dinner with he and his wife she made chicken and yellow rice and peas for dinner and it was the best I can remember.

    Sorry to hear that Unloader...Ray Charles was blind and dead for 6 years now. Doesn't look like shooting is your game! ;)

    Maybe they need to make the clay birds whistle when released I could shoot at the sound and after I get good at it I would have all shoot offs at night after dark with the lights out.

    Buddy, you must be talking about Catfish. Since he got his new glasses, he's getting tough. But, I wouldn't ride anywhere with him driving.

    BTW, I have his manual (from Cliff) for the 870 Comp and will give it to him tomorrow.
