Lol, So funny story we were deer hunting one time and I stepped in a puddle, on the way out to pick up another guy from a stand I asked him if he had an extra pair of socks cause my feat where soaked. As he's climbing down from the stand he's explaining to me where he has extra socks in his truck. By the time he gets down he realizes I have no feet have no way of telling my socks are soaked. Rest of that deer season he asked me every time if I needed I socks.

No problem, I'm glad to see he was concerned. Lot of kids just have questions. Much rather them ask then stare you know what I mean. Now a days I'm very open about it. Back when I was at Walter Reed I wasn't always willing to talk about it. A lot of us use to make up stories of how it happen based upon where we where at when asked. I've told kids I lost them in a lion attack at the zoo before. One guy was asked why he lost his legs he told them he always wanted a wheel chair. You really got to have a sense of humor about it. An injury only defines you if you let it.

Thanks again everyone

I hunted with several folks with challenges.

The first was an older guy who was diabetic and had lost a leg in one side and foot on the other side. The second was a thalidomide baby who was born without limbs beyond his elbows or knees. The other one was a guy confined to a motorized wheelchair. The "boys" in camp hauled him from one blind to another in a trailer. His crossbow was cocked for him before they left and he manipulated it with his chin and blew into a tube to release the bolt.

The thalidomide hunter (Jimmy) was hysterically funny and humbling to those of us who weren't "challenged". Whenever a new guy came to camp, we'd take turns asking Jimmy if his feet were cold and or wet. Jimmy never missed an opportunity to have fun. He hunted bow and gun with his hooks... watching him gut a deer was simply astounding.

I suggest that challenges build character if you let them. I'm sure you are the kind of guy who is all about living life. I'm tickled FN pink to be able to be part of acknowledging your great attitude and love of life.

You go brother. Good on ya.

I know bro Dustin couldn't hit a bull in the ass with a handful of rice.
Looking forward to when you get here I'm confident you'll do much better and wont get hung up in the brush like he did in a cleared milo field. Got two good spots and working on another for when gunning time comes.

Yes I did. Hope the P.O. didn't screw up. I have 1 more if it fell into the postal black hole. Just let me know.

ETA: shows delivered on the 10th

We got Charles a Magpul PRS Gen 3 Buttstock. He can use it on his Ruger RPR and his 6.8 AR. It helps a gun be more rear heavy which will I think will make the gun easier to handle.

Thank you all so much.

We have about $5.00 left over so Ill buy him a pit beef sandwich when we build his gun/s.
