Some of you may have seen this email:

Got some bad news for you guys. Just got back from the range and it looks like someone needs to start engraving my name on the trophy. What range (distance) will be be shooting from? "Big Gun Harry"

However, my response is



Was earned shooting the 1911!

I think Bonnie Osborn's two nieces are both top guns. They have been shooting since they were young girls.

For the gals entering the competition beware. Jo went to the range with me this morning. She hasn't shot any weapon, especially a semiautomatic pistol in 5-10 years, she dropped a round in the bull's-eye.

After a long and serious consideration, I am changing my Top Gun shooting name to Rootin' Tootin' Rick. Please refer to me as Rootin' Tootin' Rick at our reunion. Hopefully, this will help me focus at the shooting range.

All that is going to happen Rick by changing your name is that you will circle your rounds around the bull's-eye but never hit it. Prove me wrong.

Bigdaddy Dale, you had better signup when you get to the reunion. Would hate to see your section/division suffer due to your not competing.

Keith, David, and Charlie, should we ask the winners to display their targets at Thursday's cocktail party? That is when they get their awards.

We thought there was going to be a ringer in the competition and now we know you were the ringer. Congrats on a job well done.
