    Hello all. Great site!! I've always been fascinated with precision long range shooting and very glad I've found this site. I enjoy shooting pistols and rifles but don't have any experience past 100 yards. Hopefully that will change in the near future. I enjoy deer hunting and would like to acquire a rifle for that purpose and to get into long range rifle matches (I love my Marlin .44mag but somewhat limited range:)). I've been eyeing the TC Icon Precision Hunter in .308 on the web.

    I have two young sons and I just recently graduated my 6 year old from BB gun to .22 rifle. My 4 year old is enjoying the BB gun sometimes. What a feeling to see my son shooting the .22 rifle that my grandfather gave me with a huge grin and a "I shot it Daddy". Priceless!!!

    Thanks for the informative site and God bless to all,
    Jim

    Thanks for the welcomes and the suggestion on the raffle. Naturally, I didn't know him but have read some of his articles and look forward to learning more. I've already donated, hope it helps. Can't imagine losing a spouse. My prayers are will her.
