My Buddy Shawn AKA Hired Gun...



Shawn and I known each other for about 23 years, we have shared some great experience and very good times from hunting, and shooting to scuba diving, jeep racing, and lots of other stuff I can say he is my oldest and dearest friend.

Shawn is a very knowledgeable person and I have learned a lot from him over the years he is a great fabricator and welder.

About 16 years ago Shawn was involved in a motorcycle accident, which left him with the use of only one arm. This guy has the most positive attitude of any one I know he really never let his disability get him down. Some years after his accident I convinced him to try shooting long guns again, He tried it and it seemed to work for him that year he took a nice three point buck at about 300 yards if I remember correctly.

Since this time Shawn has gotten into long-range hunting and shooting infact he is responsible in getting me into it. Shawn with the use of only one arm can out shoot 99 % of the people that I have met in person that shoot.

Shawn shot his cow elk at 479 yards yesterday a big congratulation to him. I would have been there to help in anyway that I could but I was up to my armpits in guts on my own elk.

CONGRADULATIONS SHAWN ON JOB WELL DONE!!!!!
