Congrats to Seth!

My younger son is a graduate of Texas Tech. He had a great experience and got an excellent education which has resulted in a successful career. Texas Tech is good to their students.

This is a great opportunity, make the most of it!

Here is a Dad story about Texas Tech. So my son is graduating with a degree from Texas Tech. So I am thinking what is a good graduation gift? Texas Tech's motto is "guns up" so a .45 Colt single action would be appropriate. My Cowboy Action friends say buy a Ruger. A Ruger Vaquero at the local gun store is going for over $700. So I go to Gunbroker and there are several around $375. I have bought alot of stuff on ebay but ebay has like 900 million users so you can't expect to sneak a bid through without someone out bidding you. So I bid on all three pistols. Well, no one else bid, so I ended up with all three! My son got one, I have one, and I sold one to a buddy. My son loves his and I love mine, it's a happy ending.

A personal note to Seth -

I was a freshman at University of Texas and there was a guy I went to High School with whose Dad was a professor at UT. His Dad had a formula to make the Dean's list. The formula was never miss class for any reason, sickness whatever. The other part was study three hours a day Monday through Friday.

I bucked this program and did not make the Dean's list. Once I followed it I made it every semester.

I preached this with my sons. My older son played football at Ole Miss and made all SEC Academic and 3rd Team All American Academic. He graduated from South Texas Law School and has an fantastic career.



My younger son played football at University of Houston but transferred to Texas Tech. He followed this guideline and made the Dean's list.
My wish for you is you do the same. We are rooting for you!

Thank you all so much, this is a huge opportunity for him. Found out last night he will be on the traveling team for Texas Tech shooting. That’s huuuuge! I can’t tell y’all how much all of your well wishes mean to him. He may not have been able to have met all of you but many of you have followed him since he was a little boy and some have contributed to his shooting in huge ways. From the bottom of the Grimland family’s heart thank all of you so very much.

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!
