    Brian, lol, I hope you figured out that my previous message has a word, "neat," that SHOULD HAVE BEEN "near."πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈ You understand, being an android user, this one bar that scrolls isn't as easy to edit. πŸ˜‰

  • Lisa's avatar

    We are both "half way there" alreadyπŸ€£πŸ˜‚, so it's a short drive for me (notice I included you also, in the "half way there," in the "nuts" department πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ™ƒπŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰)

  • Brian's avatar

    @Lisa I am a little more than half way..πŸ€ͺπŸ€ͺπŸ€ͺπŸ€ͺ

    Amazing story and very blessed to have honored your father in that way. I inherited my grandfather 45.70 contender pistol it is a hand full but he always wanted to kill a big deer with it and passed before he was able to so now that is my goal for the next big deer I get a chance at

  • Milan's avatar

    Congratulations Brian, Your Dad would very proud of you!!

  • Brian's avatar

    @Michael I hope you get a great buck with it.

  • Brian's avatar

    @Milan he was my mentor for sure, I owe him a lot.

  • Brian's avatar

    @Gabriel I try to keep his spirit alive, my youngest son was only 2 when his grandfather passed so he doesn't remember him, but I have shared everything he taught me to him and make sure all my kids know who he was.

  • Brian's avatar

    @T.J. he was a true outdoorsman, he commercial fished, hunted and trapped for a living and passed his knowledge on to me so I could be self sufficient myself, and I followed in his footsteps for several years also.

  • Swamp's avatar

  • Brian's avatar

    @Dave I hope he does, I have only shot that gun one time and that was back in November of 1993. and it still looks like a new Belgium made Browning.
