What is a little torture when we do it for love. Right now you think yhis is your last class III gun, but you don't realize how insidious Thompsonitius is. It is also incurable. Congratulations and enjoy. biggrin.gif

Thanks guys; Of course Mike, hit all the targets, but over-did it, about 200 rds, and the pleasure was way too long, sun was setting and had to stop.

Hey Walter, great idea; I like the name,'Toola'. Name relays a picture of something that is useful, and encourages much handling, with an image of swaying in the soft warm breeze on a beach in the south Pacific. blink.gif (I have entirely too much time on my hands) dry.gif Thanks Walter........jw
