    Mine is 19 and been through most of the calibers and is a avid long
range shooter. He has a special made 308 gun for the 1000 yards. Just the
scope itself was more than the gun and the whole shoot'n match was over 2
grand! Fine he is young and all that stuff. The problem is now his daddy is
getting into it and has all the parts ordered to put him one together. He
just bought a action today that was close to $500. Talks about jeweled
triggers and creggar ? barrels and all kinds of goodies.
    Jon at this time outshoots all the local yokels at long range and that
includes the state troopers that shoot at his father in laws range. Long
range or speed pistol shooting he has them whipped. Course we are finding
out most anybody can outshoot the state guys. LOL Jon even showed the sniper
how to shoot! LOL
     It will be interesting to see if the young stud can whip his daddy (the
ol' stud) at target shooting soon. LOL
     That's ok, as long as they do my garden disking tomorrow and the other
heavy hauling I have planned for some raised beds with telephone poles and
plastic underneath to control the grass.
