Another building was full of guns so we checked prices on things. RNH is really wanting a Springfield 1911. The ultimate 1911 for him would be made by Colt, but he's going to settle for a Springfield. We're also looking at getting revolver of some sort since all we own right now in the handgun department are pistols. I'd also like to get RNH to help me build an M4. He built his, which I think would be pretty cool to do! The other gun he is working towards is the M1 Grandee. Ohhh if we only made a ton of money....
Everyone was waiting in line to meet these people:Michael Waddell of The Bone Collector TV show. He's pretty much every redneck's idol, and Lee and Tiffany Lakosky of "The Crush" on the Outdoor Channel. No, we did not stand in line to meet them. We did walk by and see them though!
The show was a ton of fun. RNH actually bid in a silent auction on 2 turkey calls, one $40 and the other $50. He bid a total of $20 on the two calls and waltzed out the door. No one seemed to be paying attention to the auction- which is pretty funny considering that these calls won awards for best calls in NC. Hmmm... Unfortunately the duck calls were being auctioned on Ebay. I guess they're a bit more popular!
We also got to watch a neat Labrador hunting demonstration. It gave me a renewed hope for Drake and his ability to retrieve. We were so impressed by the labs we saw that day, that once we got home RNH threw Drake into the deep water of the river and made him go swimming! He was a natural at it! Hopefully when it gets warmer, we'll continue to work withi him and the water!
The Dixie Deer Classic was awesome and we can't wait to go again next year!
