It is OK with me .
Lately it is just like Christmas morming everytime I get something .
I did not know that I was still a kid at heart .
By the way I am still gloating about the Alecto, it the best gift that I ever had without paying for it . :twisted:

Merry Christmas, Rene'.

That's just the kind of thing that makes this air-gun site simply - " One of a kind."

You have posted in the target section often and i hope you continue to do so. Keep us informed on your progress with that new rig. Many of us look forward to any info forthcoming from you in the near future.
I heard it was time to hang up that ... " GONE SHOOTIN' " sign.

All the best to you, - PK

I do about 780Km (390Km each way) to each match in Port Colborne, not quite the same, but definitely worth it :wink:

Porter Airlines - Depart Halifax 9:15am, Arrive Toronto 10:15am
Just say when and we'll have someone pick you up at Toronto Island Airport! Need a place to stay? A ride to the match? That can all be arranged too. So what's your excuse now? :wink:

I wasn't aware of your situation Rene, sorry. :oops: Family comes first! Any woman who enjoys having their husband shoot airguns in the house is a one of a kind! My inlaws are from N.S. Hopefully one day there will be an FT chapter there when I come down to visit. :)
