Mr. Gene, thank you
"Welcome to Tennessee, the patron state of shootin' stuff!"  ex-Marine Gunnery Sgt. Bob Lee Swagger

"A strong body makes the mind strong. As to the species of exercises, I advise the gun. While this gives moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprise and independence to the mind. Games played with the ball and others of that nature, are too violent for the body and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun therefore be your constant companion of your walks."  Thomas Jefferson

He could be an ornery old coot (I am sure he would laugh and nod his head at that statement as he booted me from chat) however I liked the man and miss seeing him in chat and at the last fun shoot.
