    I understand all too well. My wife died at 38 years old. I remarried a couple years later. It was a hard thing to go through. Glad your doing well.

    Welcome back. While I never dropped out completely, life changes (positive) have kept me too busy to participate much of late. There are others I miss that migrated over from TFL years ago, but the place still has much the same feel. Glad you're doing well.

    Seems like you've made it through some hard, sad days. Good that you are on the bright side of the mountain. Welcome back.

    Welcome back. I am very sorry for your wife's passing. While you were away, no decisions have been made on 9 vs 45 vs 40. Still not clear what is the ultimate deer rifle cartridge. Uncertainty on AR vs shotgun for home defense.

    Sheepdog is right Byron. No was sure whether the 30/06 is better than the .270 when you left,
    and they are still not sure. Welcome back.

    Welcome back Byron. It almost seem like I remember you from years ago.

    I'm glad you're dealing well with the loss of your wife.

    God Bless You.

    Welcome back, Byron. Walk around and breathe the air for a bit. There have been some changes, but nothing too alien I reckon.

    Always happy to see another forum recidivist.

    Welcome Back, Byron! ~ You will find us largely as you left us---often squawking about things of little lasting importance with occasional gems thrown in.
