    Hello and welcome.to the forum from Western, NY. Hope you have been able to fire that new AR that followed you home. Hope that your having some luck and fun with it too. I have mostly shot only 22lr this spring because we are saving for a new house and a wedding. We almost have 9.5 acres sealed and paid for. Next comes the tougher part of putting a house up... looking at log cabin home build, it could be another year or two before it all comes together.

    Greetings Robert to you and yours....I must have slipped a cog for having delayed
    greeting you for so long...some of my most pleasant, wartime memories built up
    in your state being transferred to the Navy Construction Battalion Center, Gulfport
    and doing temporary (TAD) additional duty there bringing the old WWII Seabee base
    back into the military inventory...I was actually from the Seabee base in California
    but with my naval seniority and teaching background, Gulfport beckoned...There was
    a little restaurant in downtown that was the epitomy of southern/country dining ..We were
    TAD'd on a per diem allowance and had to search for our food and lodging. Dang, never
    thought I'd forget the strange, but oh so desirable chow the place served...anticipations
    day after day, remember the food the customers catered to and keeping the plate/platter
    filled...strange little name like THE BLOW-FLY or something like that.. Even an Iowa
    farm boy, who had claimed to have eaten everything, animal, vegetable, or mineral, was
    astounded with the southern cooking and genuine hospitality! Sweat-soaked khaki shirts
    made no mind to those little servers....even smelling faintly of tear-gas where you'd had
    a gas mask drill for the troops earlier....welcome beyond a mere handshake or a rap on
    the shoulder...like kin folks!!! that was in the mid-60 before I went to
    Vietnam the first time....Chief

    So glad you had such a good experience while stationed here in Mississippi, but it doesn't surprise me! Thank you for the warm welcome Chief!
