Well, turned 83 last week and 2014 will be my 71st. year of competition (30 with rifle). A wonderful sport that has taken Barbara and I all over the world.

My health is good, but the ravages of age on my eyesight, reflexes and all that keep me from shooting as much or as well as I'd like. Can still release a trigger on my K-80 and will keep it up as long as I can.

Had a great time with reloading and sighting in the deer rifles I gave to my Grandson and Great Grandson for Christmas and continue to enjoy the direction of research by people who are a lot smarter than I.

All you young whipper snappers keep grinding up the birds.

Happy belated Birthday. I wished I had found the sport long before I did so I too could have possibly had the years shooting such as you have. I can only imagine the hundreds, perhaps thousands of great people you have met over the years.


Here is to many many more years of good health and enjoyable shooting for you.
