Larry, you know, I have to give those LE that I have shot with/against all the credit in the world. I have NEVER been made to feel like it was a them vs. us thing. People like John Poole, Jeff Morrison, Gina Hernandez and Robert Vadez have helped me more than I think they realize and I never felt like I was putting them out by asking questions. And although I will never be able to shoot like them (it's an age thing), they all have helped me "step up my game".
My biggest thanks have to go to Dorcia Meador who really made me feel welcome when I stopped by the Rocky Mtn. Nat's in 2004 when I was just looking around Whittington. She took some time with me and actually encouraged this civilian to come play with them - I have shot there every summer since. ken
