Random amazement

Recommended Posts

Sitting here pondering the meaning of life & it occurred to me that over the passed 13 years I have been enjoying SASS shooting I have met & learned the aliases about 300-400 or so shooters, maybe more. More than in any other sport, organization, club, school, job or group I have been in in the last 74 years. That's just phenomenal to me - I'm not very much of a social person but I keep meeting shooters that are interested in what I do, what I shoot, where I've been, how long have I shot & a million other subjects. As the saying goes - " I've been to two Worlds Fairs & Disneyland and have never seen anything like it " . What a great group of people ( including Rye Miles , I might add ) :) :) :) :)

I know exactly what you mean, Yusta. Most of the people I consider true friends I would not recognize in "civilian" clothes or without a cowboy hat

As far as names go it's probably easier to remember shooters aliases then peoples normal first and last names. It is easy not to recognize someone when you are them away from a SASS match.

I'd agree with you Yusta... and so publically state... but that might lead to swelled heads among my friends. Then again, they might already possess such, and it wouldn't matter, or they think so little of my opinion, that it wouldn't matter... Yep, that's probably it! :ph34r::o:P

Been shooting SASS for about 19 years, I can name about 10 shooters by their real names.

That's 11 more than most of us. :o:D

 

When I was in the Navy my mom was amazed at how many friends I had yet I didn't know both their first and last names. Many people at work I only knew by their last name and a lot of my drinking buddies I only knew by their first name or their nickname.
