    Actually this guy Andy used to shoot arrows too, but never hit anything. We would find them on the field once in a while. Again, never had any proof but we were pretty sure.

    I have avoided people who I have felt were not “learners”. They very well could have been “students” but we all know that all students are not learners.

    The plane is an L19 and doesnít even have a socket now, so we probably will install a panel mount. I did find at least one that is 12/24.
