Tom is the POSTAL MATCH WINNER!!! I will have the plaque prepared with his name and score and try to get it photographed on disc so that you all can see it in the email!! Congrats TOM!!!

(I think you guys should all contact Tom about some of his USBR targets, they are tougher than IR-50 and if his shooting is any way to judge his targets then I will shoot USBR only from now on!!!)

I would like to thank very one for their patience as I stumbled my way though this match! All of you have shown great kindness, friendship, and most of all sportsmanship in helping this match come together. I am proud to say that I have "met" you all and have enjoyed the company, not a day has passed that, at least one of you , has not been involved in my houghts! Many a boring day at work has been high-lighted by your calls and emails. I have been like a kid waitting for his new comic book to come in the mail, waiting for your targets to come! I wish I could meet you all !!

THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!!!!!
Rick Smith
