Now don't y'all get all wound up, that was for sure tongue-in-cheek.
I'm sure y'alls Governor is every bit as useful around a rifle as ours is.
Gov. Perry had his Team give us a call and ask for a facility visit ... of course we were more than much obliged.
We got some good pics I want to share here.
The Governor was extremely interested in manufacturing and to my delight, understood what he was looking at. He's also a high-time pilot.
Here's Mark Fingar and Paul answering pointed questions.
In close, with a couple of our guys answering more questions.
Here the Governor is passing through our assembly area with mfingar giving him more of the lowdown.
Now back at the range ... Mark Fingar and Todd Hodnett discussing things.
Todd flew in for the Governor's visit ... IMO, it's hard to beat Todd Hodnett for a 1,000+ yard 1st-round hit.
Oh, and Todd shies away from the fact that he's a former Cowboy-Action World Champion ... "Handlebar Doc".
Giving the Governor the fine points of our SPOTR System.
Todd spotting as the Governor shoots 1/2 moa groups. Yep, he did.
Gov. Perry puttin' the charm on my 4-year old ... ah yeah, the Governor's got a fine way with horses too.
Up close and personal.
Shootin' everything on the range.
Slammin' some out of the big six-shooter.
The Governor was watching the hound that day. Oh, they saved me two rounds. I hit at 100 yards with the 2nd round.
Anyhow, hope y'all enjoyed the pics. Gov. Perry got in line, and had Friday lunch with us too.
And for coming out to visit, we give a hardy thanks to Governor Perry and his entire fine team.
Nice having a Governor that can load and empty mags and doesn't call 'em "clips".
All funnin' aside, thanks Gov. Perry, for giving LaRue Tactical the honor of your visit.
P.S. Comments welcomed, but do me a big favor and keep 'em clean. Thanks in advance.

ETA - We've done the math. ;-) You learn things while building 100,000+ mounts ... and we include it in every mount going out our door. ML
i, and i'm sure everyone else, would sure like to know what's blurred out in the 3rd pic.
