I didn’t now when Pecos was happening.

But my wife had to make vacation plans for me to make it to Georgia.

She’s staying with her dad in Chattanooga.

Not at all!!! I know it was a Whiskey induced quote last weekend, but after those words left your mouth, I haven't laughed that hard in such a long time. My gut hurt!

And to make things more interesting, you could Photoshop that ugly mug and put this in its place.

Unless you can Photoshop Blondzilla, or B17, or one of Martin's redheads into the foreground, I'm thinking I will pass on the 2018 RBGC shoot shirt this year

With all you "gettin' old farts" losing your eyesight, I think I will continue to shoot irons. It may be the easiest way to place in the top 5 this year.

Luckily, I had may cataract surgery done a couple of years ago and discovered that my rifles really did have front sights.

Easy fella - B17 is so short, those Scout shorts will be mid-thigh on her.

(coming from a guy who's so short he has to work hard not to get "shorts" that go to his calf)

Maybe that's my strategy, if you can't beat them, distract them.

Or, just beat them in shorts, that works too.

Isn't amazing how, even when he is not posting, Nuttz can hijack a perfectly good thread?

A theme for the match - Rhodie

Everybody bring a Rhodie or SA flavored rifle to use. I still have an FWRA kit waiting to be put together and it has all the original baby poop on it. I think I even have some baby poop 20 and a couple of 30 rounders too.

And NO, I will not be wearing any Rhodie/SA short shorts.

For the first year since inception, I am seriously considering staying home. [edit: That went too far. No stupid moose knuckle threat will keep me away!]

Please god (Match Director), put a stop to this madness! I'm trying to think of a feat that would be impossible for a man in tight shorts so we can avoid just making an arbitrary "no tight shorts" rule. I really don't want to get stuck examining each competitor's shorts for tightness.
