    At the time, one of my favorite range toys was a T/C Greyhawk 50 cal. muzzle loader.
    Great fun, accurate and about $.45 / rd. to operate.
    My son has it now.

    I believe someone asked me if I lived in Lake Tahoe on another site, but I actually drive a 2-door Tahoe, :cool: a semi rare vehicle these days.

    All my grandchildren called me gramps. But when one of myself granddaughters started talking, it came out as gumps, and then the rest of my family and friends morphed it into gumpy. So here I am!

    My username was a nickname used by a friend. He calls me Homber...after Yosemite Sam's usage of Hombre. 243 was a badge number, which was aso an at work name where we only used badge numbers on the radio, so as to protect our identity. Public servants are targets for abuse. I could say I look like Paul Newman as an excuse for "hombre" but that would be stretchin it since I got my hair cut back in the 70's.:cool:

    It's so much easier to go by real names.

    When I first started getting into forums I used different cities in Texas. After a while I just changed them all to Austin.
