Georgia dove season is just a few weeks away.

It was great to see Stanford Hillis invite one of our fellow comrades on a once in a life time dove hunt.

I'd like to donate $25 bucks towards Foxes airline ticket.

Fox have you been in the phone with Stanford and worked out the details....is he going to put you up at his house or are you staying at a local motel ?

Is he picking you up at the airport or are you going to have to rent a car ?

I could raise my donation to $75 bucks if need be.....

Eddie- interesting thought- but I'll pass on the "invite" to miss a few doves in DeepDixie, this year. why don't you consider taking your "donation to de cause there" and do something really worthwhile, like donating it to the Saint Jude's Children's Hospital, right in Memphis, say- that's HoJo's home State isn't it?""

I’ll match whatever jOe puts up.

When you’re checking into the hotel, Fox, just keep walking.

Bring some grilled eggs for a gift.

I haven’t been following this, so I don’t know if it’s a joke or not.

But if the fox needs some support to have a once in a lifetime experience shooting doves with Stan, I’ll contribute.

Set up a place to send a check.

I have invited numerous folks from this board and another, over the years, to shoot doves with me. Some have already been able to come, some are waiting until it is opportune, some may never be able to. Those who have come have enjoyed themselves, I think. All have been appreciative of the opportunity. Who has been invited is not a topic for public discussion, by me anyway. I have been shown kindnesses by members here so many times that I have lost count. I have tried to reciprocate, and try to just pay it forward when I can't.

Those miserable peOple who constantly try to steal joy from those of us who have it are struggling in vain. Their misery takes nothing away from the joy I have at being alive, happy, and sharing it with others. I guess they just want everyone else to be as miserable as they are.

Well Dave, I'm pretty sure it's time to give ol' HoJoE the boot from this site. These threads and posts of his taking a dump on us need to be eliminated. Especially his vendetta of harassing Stan Hillis. Thanks for listening.

It was an implicit invite. And jOe better be careful. Geo was a lawyer and I bet he can twist this all around so that jOe ends up in jail in Ludowici. He’ll be eating hot boloney, eggs and gravy twice a day for a month.

HoJoe suggested a collection and was invited to piss up a rope.
That’s the only invite I see inferred.

Ain’t no grilled eggs in jail in Ludowici, Ga.

You are correct- April 2019 Stan and I finished the deal on a 12 ga. 3E fully optioned L.C. Smith-He wanted the 32" F&F barrels, which were added later, matched to the frame at the factory. I dated it by 2 known Smithian factors or benchmarks-- The Smith ventilated rib was offered as an option sometime in the late 1920's- after Gifford Simmonds (Simmonds Saw Co.) had bought the struggling gun works from the Hunter Boys-- and it also had a factory beavertail with the later mid-1930's forearm release escutcheon, formerly the "banjo" shaped, changed to a rectangular shape, perhaps as a cost cutting move.. It was the smoothest deal, handled by Bachelder here in MI, since about 12 years ago, when my pal Brad was still with us, and I had him sell the 2 grade 6 12 bore Parker guns my grandfather willed to me.

I don't want to steal Stan's thunder here, or anywhere else, but fro my end, it was the smoothest gun transaction I have participated in-whoops, grammar time-better make that "the smoothest gun transaction in which I have ever been a part of" whew!! Stan is a first class Southern gent'man, and if it ever did work out, I would look forward to it like a boy at Christmas, hoping Santa brought him a Lionel train set.RWTF

This was a pretty sophisticated place when I was here several years ago. Now, I read the poster's name before deciding whether to read the post.

For the first time in nearly 20 years on this board I have begun to use the ignore feature. Buddies that are much smarter than I advised me to do that long ago, but I thought I knew better.

"Don't feed the trolls" is good advice. I've finally listened.
