I know, and I agree the trade would be worthwhile. Please pass that on to the both of them, Komrade Ilarion.

The other possibility is that Harwood could come with Pumpgun Bill. Which means he'd be badly outshot . . . but then that's true of about all of us. I still remember the time--I think it may have been the very first Flatwater--when Bill broke 5 pairs in a row on one station with 5 shots.

I remember even better him showing you exactly what all the advantages of a Poly-choke were. :D :D

Psychological warfare! If Bill wants to mess with me, all he has to do is start fiddling with his Dial a Duck.

I think it was the part where he reached out and changed the choke setting between targets.

On the very same squad as the 5 single shot double brakes with the same gun. We were just before the Larry Brown memorial rabbit station for the choke fun and just after it for the 5 single shot doubles. Station 10 was the chondelles we shot only coming down a zillion times with Ron White.

Damn, Ron really impressed me there. He consistently broke a falling teal target about 2-3 feet off the ground at 50-60 yards. Amazing.

Ron's a good shot, no question. Politics aside, I'm sure all of us there were pulling for Ron when we heard he'd had a stroke. I remember someone saying that initially, Ron hadn't been able to tell the docs who was president--at which point I'm sure we all had the same thought: he really knew it was W but just couldn't bring himself to say it.
