No need to apologize Steve. No one knows how they would handle such a great loss . Only folks that have been through what you are going through could understand . I will pray that God will give you Grace during this time of loss .

    My dad was very much like yours Steve. I know how you feel and as someone else said, just always remember. And yes, he is in a MUCH better place now.
    What is his name by the way?

    I am sorry for your loss. Emotions are strong for our dad and you really never know how you will act on a day like that. I am glad you were able to spend the time you had with your dad, as in the future years, it will be a comfort to you.

    thanks guys for all the kind words.my dads name is larry joseph howe.67 years old with bad eyesight and could still out shoot me. he was a master handloader and taught me everything i know today about working up quality loads and ringing out the last tidbit of accuracy out of an already good shooting rig.if i had the money i would always pamper dad at xmas with really cool stuff like new guns and tumblers and digital powder scales and bags full of new brass. dads favorite calibers were the .243 winchester for varmints and light work,and his trusty .270 weatherby for big game.mom always got irritated with us because all we ever bought each other was shooting gear or reloading stuff. dads .270 weatherby was an awesome rig and always surprised people with the groups it was capable of. it consisted of a left hand rem 700 long action (timed and trued),a light varmint contoured hart stainless match barrel,a boyds grey laminatedstock that i steel bedded for him,a timney trigger,and topped with leupold vx3 8.5x20 .i watched him many a time put 3 in one hole with that big magnum.
