I wish I could be there. I haven't seen or greeted Rick for several years. He is a great guy.

The DH 10 gauge 3 frame 32" gun in my accumulation came to me with a blued action and a replacement non Parker stock . However the dimensions on this non factory stock seem to fit me better than the EH 3 frame 32" I've been using . So I had a pad installed today and will try it at the Flying Rabbit tommorrow in hopes of taking it to Georgetown next week

Guns a 58,xxx and seems to have had a well used life . Engraving is pretty worn but they me partly due to the blue job . Anyway this one will get a test drive friday . Incidentally barrel extraordinaire Breck Gorman refinished the barrels .

As luck would have it, a birthday has been sprung on us to ruin our plans to attend the Fall Southern. We are resisting it, although my sons might not make it. Julia and I are coming even if people get mad. We had to get some medical stuff behind us and it has resolved well.

Exactly the reason I won't be there. Tough having family who cares so much about me. I don't see what's the big deal, it's not like it's a really special b'day or anything. It's only number 70.

You got me by 10 I hit 60 this past july and to be honest I wasn't happy about it !

But then I think back to what my dearly departed mother used to say after under going chemo treatments and being sick to her stomach a day or two after being sick beats the alternative much like having birthdays beats the alternative of no longer having them !

For your B-Day you should have asked to go to the Fall Southern. Just sayin'.

Default Fall SxS

Anyone attending the Fall SxS see any exhibitors present?
I know it is primarily a shooting event but occasionally an
exhibitor or more will be there.
Thanks! 😎
