    Shouldn't be hard too figure out...not too many in that configuration floating around:rolleyes:

    Edit-I found what you're talking about...guess the price was too rich even for Ebay. At least I know who NOT to proxy for or sell to now:(

    It is his right to ask anything for it. It is our right to laugh at him. Of course, if he gets his price, the laugh is on us. :D

    3V. The AEBL is rare - I’d leave it as made.

    Jo, Dan and Bennie Boo are competing at the National Championship in Texas this weekend. I spent the better part of a day dressing out dents and dings and getting knives freaky sharp. Jo is undefeated for the season but she hasn't been up against last year's world champion yet since facing her (and taking 2nd) in worlds last year. But she has been practicing and her knife and her technique are dialed in now. Jo's the only woman to two hit a 1X4 in competition and she's heading into this competition with a big power advantage there and she's very strong in all of the other cuts too so I think she stands a good chance of winning this thing tomorrow. But, you know, fingers crossed.
