    WOW! Thanks, Jim. FedEx never showed, and I've been battling the flu. About over it now, then the rest of the house is getting it. Even the dog is sick today.

    You should have it back on Tuesday.

    Merry Christmas.

    OH, almost forgot the BEST NEWS EVER!!!!

    Marcello contacted me today to tell me he is now actually milling out the stainless steel Perazzi triggers and hopes to have them on the American market through me for under $400. I'm thinking next month.

    Then he's building the rest of the internal parts to (1) provide gunsmiths and upgrade kit for triggers, (2) parts that the average guy can use to finish off the SS housings, and (3) will provide complete triggers. We *think* under $1,000.

    This Marcello is so open to suggestions and most willing to accommodate us shooters. He is even making some barrel lugs for one of our own TS.COM shooters, SportShot or Shot410.

    Devi: I bought one about 30 minutes after I won a handicap at the Grand my first year shooting. In fact, when I walked off the line, "Mr. Singles", Bueford Bailey of NE, escorted me behind the last trap into the Ljutic booth.

    Bueford told old man Ljutic I needed a new gun. He responded that I wasn't good enough to own one of his guns (maybe a joke, but I didn't like it), so Bueford walked back up to the Perazzi booth, and I took ownership of a new TM1.

    I shot if for years and learned to fix it myself and then expanded to fixing all of them here in the Midwest. Have shot, owned, and repaired them for teh last 34 years.

    How many more ljutics would they have sold if the ljutics themselves had been more, shall we say, personable? I got along fine with them ..... they never gave me the time of day and I never bought a ljutic.
