We have you in our thoughts Harold. Stay well.

Thanks, Dave.  Will forward to a higher power.

Got a note from Harold this morning. He got pneumonia from his recent flight and has developed several other complications.

He isn't doing very well and is asking for your prayers.

Can't shoot in the house anymore because of the wife's bird. He gets all excited and wants to shoot too.

So Dave are you still using the indoor shooting range or have you moved it outside to the yard? 

Comment by Dave Gettman on December 7, 2019 at 4:09pm

Thank you, Brother. I've gotten better with it since then.

Nice grouping with that there air rifle Dave.

Lovin' this gun!!! Oh, what a sweet trigger. And accurate! If I could hold still I could probably hit the same hole every time. Or at least real close.

The bottom target is an eight-shot group. Both side targets are 4-shot.

Lookin' good, Frank. Yeah, low 40's is pretty chilly for the folks down there. Up here it rarely gets much warmer than that, today being one of those rare days. Might hit 50!!!

Good Wednesday afternoon Fellow Troopers and Oldtimers,

I hope that everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving with lots of food, family and fun. We spent the afternoon with our oldest daughter and her family. My Son was there too. Turkey and the usual trimmings, Cherry and Pumpkin pies for dessert.

Finally getting some COLD (for us) temperatures. Lows in the low 40s and Highs in the mid to upper 60s. Some 70s by this weekend.

Wishing y'all the Merriest Christmas and Holiday Season!  Toujours Pret!

This was the third design of the 2d Cavalry DUI, worn from 1924-1931. The sharp points on the ends of the bottom scroll again called for a redesign.
