Thanks, everyone!  I feel very privileged to have served with so many of you and from whom I have learned so much.  No doubt many states develop through good instructor mentoring; but, Ohio's program is and has been exceptional--with so many committed instructors to learn from.

Hoover is a great instructor and I am inspired by his example.  I hope to be half as good as him some day.

Dear MeanStreaker:

You might remember me from the New Philadelphia Shoot,  I was shooting the 8mm Mauser.  During one of our conversations you made the comment that your were of the opinion "that every American should own a .30 caliber battle rifle."  This thought has weighed heavily on my mind.  I have several models that I am considering and would appreciate you input on makes or models.  I am guessing when you say .30 caliber, you mean .308 or 30-06 and not the 7.62 x 39 round or the 7.62 Russian round.  I value your input.

Thanks!

Cutter
