Thanks Guys! Its an honor, until Ned hands me the plunger... :shock:

I must say, when I was surrounded by you all I was thinking... What in the !@#$ did I Do last night? Vegas tends to do that to me :?

As you all know, anything I can do to better this already great thing you all have going will be a pleasure. After hearing what we have to look forward to in 2008 I'm excited and the folks are going to see some really cool things come together. I also heard Jason "small vise" Burton blurt out a figure he is setting for next years goal for our charities. I also thought I heard him say he'd pay the difference if we didn't make that goal... :lol:

Lastly I have to bring up this flag thats been sitting on my desk... I cant stop looking at it. It makes my very, very proud to be a part of what we are doing here.

THANKS!

Again, congratulations.

Stan, next year, guess who doesn't get "Hey, could you just walk this over to the trash real quick" about 16 times?

Welcome.
Going through the initiation in Vegas must have been some price to pay. I think I would have held off until the SHOT Show was somewhere else that didn't have unlimited resources of...things.

The "jump in" phase on joining the LTW board wasn't quite as civil as depicted below, but it did involve a goat and he did get the keys to the executive dining area so I thought this would be appropriate. John you are a great addition. Congratulations!

I have VZ's on all my 1911's. They are awesome grips, and John is great to deal with.
