I thanked him and said I been waitin a long while for this babe, as I pointed to the box. Rushing in the house I opened the box and hugged my custom made KILLDEER for the first time of many to come.
: THANK YOU! I will enjoy it for years to come. I've always wanted Hawkeye's (DDL) Rifle ever since I saw the movie. Finally, I have it!
: Thank you again. You've helped me out alot!
: I think Bill is going to be reallllly busy, if he isn't already, very soon. Thank you for sending the Killdeer Kare page, I needed that.
: By his own hand, ..."
: Bill, a GREAT job! Thanks!
: All of you out there ... Enjoy your Thanksgiving Day!
: That's my last post for today ... off to enjoy MINE!
Happy Belated Thanksgiving to all!!!
