On a more serious note ,as if I had one!
Iím no expert on rim fire organizations or the game,
But I am on growing and nurturing a sport and a club to push it with.
After being involved with archery competition and bow hunting for 35 years
Iíve found , ya got to keep the health and welfare of the sport alive!!!

You canít say , ďwell if there not playing my game, I wonít support itĒ!
Or if they wonít play by my rules forget them!!!
Or if it donít fit my personal needs ďnot interestedĒ

A game whether it be RIM Fire or bingo, canít grow without the support
Of all itís kinfolk!!!

In archery the die hard bow hunters sometimes look at the target archers and say ďyou guys are on your own, Iím not interestedĒ not realizing tho the two games are different , they both use the same tools
And aspire to the same ideas ( a game with bows and arrows , or guns and ammo)
Needs to be supported buy the folks that use these toys or tools, we canít say ď I donít shoot in the Olympics, or prone , or ara ,schutzen, rba, ect. Ect. So Iím not helping out !!!!
If one good useful limb on a tree dies the whole tree suffers, at times trees need to be pruned,
But only to save the tree.

That brings me to another sore subject, commercial business involved with setting rules and controlling These games
thatI donít work either!
When that happens we are at the mercy of the business owners!
If Remington made the only gun , they could tell us how and when ,and how much itís gonna cost to play our games!

In finishin this bullship ramble!!
If ya keep things in this order youíll always have a game to play
1.the whole sport and all itís many parts
2.the clubs and support groups
3. The manufacturers, and commercial business, and for profit facilities
4.last but not least, our own personal interests

Weíll always have somewhere to go and play on any given week end!
Now , jest shoot me an get me out of yer misery
