Re: Who are those guys???
Really enjoyed meeting Len and sharing the presence of that big brown fellow. He was somewhat different this time (the brownie, not Len) since my brain still has him coming head-on like a freight-train and a mildot reticle sitting on his shoulder. I hope that next year is Dave King's year to do the SHOT show. The LE area will put you into a combination of a cold sweat, hyperventilation and credit card shock!!! Enjoyed two DAVE KING evenings, a room full of snipers at the Badger/GA bash and a room full of military dudes (SF seemed to be not uncommon initials) at the KIFARU open-house at the Hilton.
SHOT was somewhat crazy and I really appreciate your patience Len - Great to meet you! Shooting a little palm-sized Canon digital is a far-cry from what you are used to shooting - appreciate your photography very much. Pictures are great - they are super-important to me (never had a photo of my owner and our daughter taken in front of a 10' brown bear before!). Enjoyed our walk-around and meeting you a lot.
Best quote of the SHOT show was by a little lady after I told her the story of the big bear interrupting my breakfast as he and his girl friend "beared-down" on our camp one Alaskan morning:
"Mister, I believe that you have bigger balls than that bear has..."
She was a sweetie and her comment will probably go into T/C history. Had me short for words, which does not happen very often [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]
T/C's fine display-booth and the big bear will be at the Houston NRA meeting in April - hope to meet some LR Hunting guys from that area when I attend that show. Full story of my bear hunt is coming out that month in the American Hunter - the big bear will be at the NRA annual meeting and the story will be in the issue they take to their convention.
