Ok guys, something good is coming out of this. The real ZEN is returning to AR15.com after finding out an imposter was posing as him. He will be back very shortly. And I will help to let you know when it is the real one. Whatever happened long ago to chase him away is not entirely known. I for one welcome his character back here. And I know many of you do too.

Most excellent, Kjay. I for one enjoyed his witty discourses.

I too am looking forward to ZEN's return, this place could use some of his wit & humor. I'm also glad to see antiUSSA posting again too, for those same reasons.

The Man. The Myth. The Legend. Zen was before my time. I look forward to his return.

On the wind swept plains of Montana at the foot of a huge rocky mountain is a small flat circular hatch which was once a missile silo entrance ......... As the wind blows dusty tumble weeds across the plain, the hatch slightly cracks and the wispy sucking sound of and intake of air (as when you open a large can of beans) can be heard. The hatch opens only slightly. Only enough to reveal a dark pair of haggard eyes peeking out. The eyes are bloodshot an weary, from too much 25 year old girlfriend. (one only, now departed) (yes, me dumped and heart broken in a million pieces) (dam girl!) The once robust and hardy Zen, now reduced to a humble thin shadow of his former self, waves to the crowd. "Hi" Zen "This is my rifle, there are many like it, but this one is mine" P.S. And by the way, to who ever deemed to impersonate me. One, it was kind of funny.. (I doff my hat to you) Two, if you are going to do it, ..... GET THE DAM SIGNATURE QUOTE RIGHT!!!!! (it was a dead give away dude)

The prodigal son returns! Welcome back! If you are going to attempt to live up to your reputation, you've got quite a task ahead of you! The stuff of legends...

Aaaaaa crap!!!! Now we go back in time and try to relive our past. Boring.... Hey Zen, I heard that there are a herd of sheep in Montana that scatter whenever your name is spoken. Now as we say here in Arizona.... "Welcome to Arizona, now go back where you came from!" This is Zen's rifle, this is his gun, now is the time for the fun!

The posts are fun to read. That's all. Just like the one above.

Welcome back, Zen. Hopefully we'll be hearing more from you. [:)]

. The story continued: A foul smell permeates the air, as if someone had only stocked canned beans to eat for months at a time (he did). All living things for miles in any direction flee for their lives or die of the dry heaves. The earth trembles in it's death throws, the ground bursts into flames in pain. He looks around, the only sight visible for miles is dead animals and blasted earth. He utters the immortal words all the earth was waiting to hear "hey, dudes, Zen is back"

MR Zen, Welcome back, we never actually exchanged any posts, but I enjoyed your sense of humor and since you left, I have moved to Whitefish Montana, so if you ever get up to the Flathead valley, let me know, so we can do some shooting @ NVSC. Ed This is my post, there are many others like it, but this one makes some sense. :-)

Hiya Zen, welcome back... I've kinda taken a short sabatical from AR15.com myself for a while too :) M. Doh! You made your comeback a little too late... I was in Billings the end of June with the Army Reserve bored stiff out of my skull, I would have like to do some shooting with you.
Link Posted: 8/3/2001 7:59:56 AM EDT
Aw, sh*t. There goes the neighborhood! [:D] Welcome back, Zen!
Link Posted: 8/3/2001 8:18:46 AM EDT
I hate it when I wear out a perfectly good 25 year old. There was someone sitting in your chair, but he was set upon by several drunken armchair warriors when they heard you were back in town. Don't think I've had the honor,... "hello".

Welcome back ZEN. And.. (seriously)... Thanks for all of your prodding pestering about Y2K. After all is said and done, it really pays to be prepared for the unknown. Thanks, RBAD

Thank you all very much for the welcome back. I am touched. I want to say a special thank you to Kjay for alerting me to my imposter. And all the other important things he did. I also wish to publicly thank Ed Avila, and Juan Avila. Two gentlemen of the old school. Thank you. Zen
