    Hi hilldrum

    Congrats- FREEDOM AT LAST!!! whoohooo!

    Just a little confused though, it is Friday 8 June here in South Africa, you say by you it will be Saturday 6 June- just wondering if it's a typo?

    Regards

    Well, was fortunate enough to spend a bit of time with Chief Eagles yesterday. As he said, he was coming to Mesa for the grand opening of a Bass Pro Shop, and I'd never let the opportunity to meet a fellow Gauger get by me. We didn't spend much time since he was "on the job" and there were tons of people there. Boy, what a place, we were looking at shotguns, and saw one there with a $97,000 price tag hanging off it. I might have been interested in it except it was a 20 ga and I shoot 12 ga target. :rolleyes: :rolleyes::rolleyes: yeah, right..:mrgreen: Sheesh, would someone actually go shoot a gun worth almost $100 grand???? :eek:

    Anyway, thanks Chief for letting me know you were in town and it was great meeting with you. :thumb: :thumb:

    I'm really not sure. I saw a piece on TV about two weeks ago where you would fly into Italy and get measured for your gun and they would taylor it to you liking and fit. They also had the finest engravers and used a lot of gold inlay. I've gone to trap meets where they had gun dealers selling trap guns in the $5000 range up to around $30,000, but never one for $97,000.:eek: It didn't look much different than the ones next to it that were in the $3,000 to 5,000 range, except it had a lot more engraving and probably the finest wood around.

    I think if I owned it, or even borrowed it, I would miss the target a lot, being about as nervous as I could be shooting the darn thing. Plus, the insurance, based on what I pay for my guns, would run almost $1600 a year for this one alone.:rolleyes: :rolleyes:

    That means if you sell your house, you'd have to come up with an extra $5,000 if you wanted that gun.:eek:

    I think it kinda ironic though. The shells I shoot run me about 20 cents each. Someone that buys that very expensive gun, still has to shoot 20 cent shells in it. And if I don't point it at the target just right, I miss. The same is true for this guy, so paying all that money doesn't get him one heck of a lot more than I got for a heck of a lot less.:mrgreen::mrgreen:

    hilldrum, one of my friends has a watch that works backwards, so he has to tell the time in an anti- clockwise way.

    What you gonna study?

    Morning. Found out from a lady resident that all grocery stores in AZ have GRITS. Guess that makes AZ a SOUTHERN state.
    Off to the BPS. Have a great day.

    Yeah, and go over and have breakfast at that Cracker Barrel where you are and you'll find that they served grits with just about everything. It's a tourist thing...:rolleyes::rolleyes:

    They way you tell is whether the Cracker Barrel automatically brings the grits or if they have to cook them after you ask for them. Or if they don't bring them even after you ask for them.
