I just wanted to thank you sir for the history lesson. I just let my boy read your post and he couldn't believe the prices. He is only 12. I have tried to tell him in the past things didn't cost a fortune. I am only 40 but I can remember when our money was worth something. I am sorry to hear about your health issues. I have MS so I understand health issues cutting into shooting time. Good luck to you sir and thank you again for the inspiration.
Anyways that's my two and a half cents.
