    I'm an avid shooter, hunter and fisherman. I live in north central Kentucky and am blessed to have so many hunting opportunities right outside my door. We are very fortunate to have the options of hunting, bow fishing, and fishing year around. There's always a season of some sort open and I try to take part in most of them. My favorites are in no certain order deer, doves, ducks, coyotes, rabbits, bow fishing, reloading and long range targets. I've been reading some of the posts here and fell very confident in saying I'm definitely surrounded by like minded people.

    Thanks for the welcome. I have relatives in Victoria, TX just a little way from you. I've been to visit several times and have to say that sure is a pretty part of our great country!!

    P-nasty1, yes it is pretty here. I can even find great beauty in the Mesquite and the Cacti. Like so many things here the Mesquite and the Cacti have thorns to prevent other critters from eating them. Javelinas (also known as Collard Peccary and the mascot of my alma mater) and Feral Hogs love prickly pear where conditions turn really dry.

    Here is a photo of some painted ladies that are common to the area.

    Good Morning, Sir from rainy and stormy Arizona....it is cold and the duds I am digging
    out of storage smell like moth-balls and old people...you will note I addressed you as
    SIR....having been in naval construction for a 20 year career, SIR was such a required
    and compulsory salutation....I am 83 years a senior, young man and I have never addressed
    someone as 'nasty' unless I was ready and wiling...Of course, I am just 'ragging' you now
    because I was going to make the point I always do about these fine Americans being just
    outstanding warm and friendly here at TFF...as I try to be...once about 15 years ago this old county counstable from some where in the south told me I'd have to be 100 years old to have
    met as many important people as I claimed. Well Sir, I didn't call him a name but told him
    I didn't live back in the boondocks where I'd be like him and have to wipe the hoot-owl
    crap off the clock to see what time of day it was...should'a called him Barney Fife, you think?
    Oh yeah, I generally script the longest welcome on board here...Happy New Years to you
    and your family...Chief

    A moment of sadness ...not needed or maybe, not even welcome...I've been on board here
    since the very beginning of this site and I've seen men and women come to visit...never
    met them personally, and for the most part, never saw what they looked like ...nor they me.
    ...and seen many of them go ...some with explanations and others, not a peep!
    It began on the 25th anniversary of the American troops leaving Vietnam...Network MS/NBC
    established a site called VIETNAM MEMORIES BULLETIN BOARD...it encouraged troops like
    myself to relate events and stories about the war...on exactly I year of establishing the site
    it shut down...A sporting goods/gun shop owner, STEVE/JD/TAC over in Vermont kept things going and I think with the title it now packs, THE FIREARMS FORUM... Steve requested my
    permission to keep the stories I had posted on the Vietnam site to be carried on the TFF...
    Of course, I was flattered with the request and told JD that I'd just keep rambling on...those
    are posted below under Vietnam Stories by John Wilborn... We all lost the Good Guy so very
    unexpectedly and sadly...he and I used to call each other 'land-line' and visit about this and
    that for hours...often I would reassure him that his not having served in the military didn't make
    him any less of a ardent American for he supported we who did or had to serve...again Sir,
    Happy New Year to all you have round and about you...Chief
