I am new to HiPoint guns. Just got a 4095 the other day, and I am looking forward to learning more about these neat guns.

I am a retired pilot, 20 yrs USAF/ANG, and 31 with my airline. (Yes, I am an old guy).

Sorry to see you go Dean. Never enough time and it makes
us all realize just what being mortal is. You have been a true friend to me
and I will miss you every day.

If the mentally deficient are not allowed to own guns then why should they be allowed to make gun laws?

I flew O1 Birddogs in Vietnam as a Forward Air Controller. Came back as a T37 instructor. AF was gonna stick me in a missile silo, (too many pilots), so I got out. Went right into the ANG. Flew O2s for a year, talked my way into the LA Air Guard, (CoonAss Militia), and flew F100, F4C, and F15s for next 14 years.

I don't know anyone luckier than me. Started out in a Bird dog at 70 kts, and finished in an Eagle. Retired in '88 as what I used to make fun of as a lt, but I had a great run.

You had quite a run that's for sure...

I went in in the army in 77 wanting to be a helicopter pilot, but they had plenty left over from Vietnam and said no because I wore glasses..... Now they will let them fly with glasses. I got ripped off LOL
