    just read the details on your wife ryan. wow. i feel for you. so is it wise to consider a 500 mile trip if the wife is on standby for a heart? or is it a good idea to take some of the stress off you and the boy to get away from it for a time?

    Thanks for asking.My first responsibilty is always the wife.She is currently on the heart transplant list but not a High enough level to get a call.Thats because she has the heartmate 2 device that keeps her healthy while shes waiting.She can travel as long as shes up to it.We just have to inform the doctors if were going more than 4 hrs away.We have to give them are itenerary and map out the route were taken so they can inform the hospitals along the route and the closest Heartmate 2 certified hospital closest to you in case she has a problem.Although if shes doing good I might have her stay with her parents and just me and the boy will come.Im glad you asked I need to do a hospital search.Whats the closest big city to you?

    Prayers from KY. for you and your wife as well.
    My wife got me a thrower for fathers day 2 years ago.
    It was about 75.00 @ wally world and it seems to work very well. My son and one of my daughters and I have used it a lot. It will throw singles or doubles, has a cocking arm to make it easier to load, and it has a seat believe it or not ! The end behind the seat will fit a 2" receiver hitch on a truck as well. Don't remember the brand maybe ALLEN I will try to look it up.

    Me and the boy went clay shooting yesterday and had a little competition.We were short on clays so we both had 5 to warm up and then we did the best out of 5.We tied we both shot 4/5.As soon as he shot the last clay he said (look dad theres a bird and then kaboom)the bird dropped at our feet.It was a blackbird and then he said I won.I just laughed and said ya you won.

    add about a 4-5 foot handle and you can throw targets out of sight Randy

    I think we have both owned the same gun (I still have it) and broke a lot of targets together. Have you heard from any other members of the team Randy

    guy named john henry is on the new team. some lcdr p3 flyboy. he posts a lot on sgw. says its hard to keep a 5mt together due to orders deploying.
    never hear from any of the old team guys. they fell off the face of the earth.

    hey ryan, i thinks randy was just signing his letter at the end.

    the spring loaded throwers ain't much.. I like them way better than the hand throwers. cuz you can have realitively unskilled or non strong helpers 'pull' a string for you.. yet they may not be able to loft a clay well. my wife is an example. she can't throw a clay.. she can pull a trip string though.. :)

    Me and Brandon went clay shooting today.We take turns pulling the machine,he will shoot 6 and then he will pull 6 for me.Well today he got up on the wrong side of the bed and was really cranky all morning.When he gets like that I start messing with him and he usually snaps out of it.He said pull and I pulled it,he didnt think I was fast enough so he said pull again.After he shot he said (pull it the first time).I said ok so he got ready and said pull and I just sat there.He looked at me like youve got to be kidding me.And I said you only said pull.I said you just got through saying to pull it the first time.He paused for a minute and when he got my funny he started laughing and was fine the rest of the day.
