Rowjimmy ???

Anyone know what happened to him? He disappeared and was last seen in February according to his profile.

Love him or hate him, he was prolific here. I hope he is OK ???

I think he moved to Brazil, found happiness with carnival gurls, and forgot all about rifels.

Sounds like a worthwhile quest

He has probably been able to train his students to think for themselves and found this place to be lacking . . .

Good thing we have RSS here to take his place. Plus, he’s managed to double the twattiness while halving the intelligence. That’s no small feat so at least we have that going for us, which is nice.

I hope RJ is okay, though. He was usually worth reading, and I think he did some RNG’n which makes him OK in my book.

Until his return,,,I am looking for new investors in the post world wide major disaster whore house operation we'd planned for years.

Franchise opportunities are also available,,,in your local areas,,,cost,,,,8 cases of beans,,,re-fried for here west of the big muddy,,,pinto for east of the big muddy.

Our motto,,,once the world is knocked flat,,,can't get it up anymore,,,mankind will rise to the occasion....

He probably lost his flashlight again and went lookin for the ?/@#6&8 that took it.

He also drove down to GA for Bruce's match at least once. Good rifle shooter. Great pistol shooter.

He's a good guy. Bob would be welcome at my place for dinner or if TSHTF, but it would be a long drive or walk.


I think he's busy playing his guitars and working with students. He's good at those things, too. Shlomo got a giant laugh out of the famous RowJimmy Challenge / BillyBob teef video all those years ago. The answer is "6 seconds". Not sure it's been done with an FAL yet, but some people have come close.
