    Thanks, he still has it. I'm almost that old. I was on the base competition pistol team 1959-63 and still shoot pistols regularly. Now we (son-in-law and I) are more concerned with draw, aim, shoot fast and accurately. I did shoot a few slow fire shots with the S&W 637 and little Sig P238 today when we were out. The biggest problem I find is focus both sights and target. A Zombie at 7 yards two second double tap is no brainer with either gun but a quarter a 10 yards with the .22 is about all I can do (about 1 in 3 or 4) now, while 50 years ago an 8X string at 25 yards was pretty normal. Oh well, they make a Governor for that. :-)

    NEVER point a gun at something you are not prepared to destroy!
    AND for GODS sake, get your finger off the trigger until you are ready to squeeze the trigger!

    I don't normally have vision problems, or suddenly have feel like I just had eye drops put into my eyes, but this video really messed my computer monitor.

    May God bless ALL our veteran hero's!

    Must be talking about Ted Gundy
    Saw this awhile ago.
    So gracious, meek and humble.
    When the President of the reproduction riflemaker gave him the rifle, I thought he(Ted) was going to break down.

    Coolest "great one" I've seen in awhile.
