    Funny thing, I'm the leftie, but she shoots left Both daughters are rightie, actually. Svensk  on her mom's side Norske on mine. We play in an Irish band, I joke that while my ancestors don't have any Irish blood, the Irish have some of my ancestor's. Odd thing about the band, only two are Irish at all, 2 Norwegians, a Svenske, Brazilian, and Puerto Rican round out the mix.

    We shoot at Nock and Feather in Aurora, you should join us some time. They open at 430 for the after work crowd. $5 you can shoot all day.

    Ed-- they sell the mid range PSE crossbows, so I think they welcome all. Seeing as they allow compound bows I would imagine they take whatever you bring. I wish they would replace the backstop, it is getting pretty worn out. It is made of MDF. I might offer to do it in trade for a year's shooting.

    Hermit- I'll meet you in Edmonton. It is only 26 hours from here.
