Back after 10 plus years! Empty Back after 10 plus years!

Post by jim fabanich 11/14/2015, 11:02 pm

After 10 years, I am coming back to BE! A change in employment forced a whole sale of shooting gear but after finishing my Degree at the age of 43 and spending the last 6 years as a deputy sheriff, I am finally in a position to come back to competing.
I have spent the last few months bartering, trading and such so I have my RF Nelson/Caspian ready to go and am working on getting 45 now.
Feels good to be able to come back!
Now, if you guys who bought my stuff 10 years ago, would kindly send it all back..Wink

Congratulations on the degree and meeting some goals.  Isn't it the pits when work gets in the way of shooting!

Congratulations on getting your degree. Great that you can get back into the game. It's always good to see an officer of the law interested in the shooting sports.

Your name is familiar to me, but not as a source for my equipment.  Congrats and welcome back!

Get busy..  I returned in 2014 after 18 years away.  Best score to date since the restart is 50 points lower than my best in 1996.  I was 61 when I started back and found that I needed to work to get in shape for a 2700.  In fact spent 2014 shooting slow fire at a timed fire cadence just to make it through the day.

I took 5 years off due to work and family obligations, and lost nearly a full classification! The comeback has been pretty tough.

My advice to everyone else out there; never ever take a break.
