    Thank you so much for your appreciation. The Springfield rifles were fine guns , especially when used with those 220 grain soft nose cartridges made by Remington.

    Thank you so much for your never ending support and appreciation. Sundar Raj sir's son is still alive in Darjeeling . He may be able to know as he would deal with all the matters involving exporting skins for our clients. I remember them telling me that they were planning to sell the leopard skin . If l were to guess , they must have sold the leopard skin and divided the spoils. I understand that leopard skins were used for making lady's coats in the United States of America , at the time.

    Mr. Rahman, thank you for another exciting and interesting story. I find myself this week, each morning, waking up and checking what new adventure you've shared. Please keep them coming! And I look forward to @Hoss Delgado book!

    Your brief reference to your father reminded me of my own to a certain extent. My father was an Army man, serving 37 years. While he never pushed or coerced me to it, I couldn't help but follow in his footsteps. 18 years of service and counting, I regret nothing!

    Looking forward to tomorrow's stories!

    You should be proud that you served your motherland . Your father must be unimaginably proud of you. Those who serve their country deserve the highest badge of honor. I have written two more stories since. Father was the hero in my life. Beating children was common in our era , however neither father nor mother ever hit me and gave me anything except support.

    Thanks for another great tale. It’s great that your dad was your hero and mentor. My father taught me my love for hunting and the outdoors as well as teaching me about horses, cattle and ranching. I’ve been a cowboy and a hunter all my life because of my dad.

    Thank you for your unimaginable support. You are very lucky to have such a father. I love cow boy films too. My favorite is John Wayne's " Stage Coach " and Clint Eastwood's " Two mules for sister Sarah " . The last film l ever watched with my father was " Shootist" by John Wayne.

    We had every John Wayne, Clint Eastwood, and Jimmy Stewart western in my home growing up. But my dad's two favorites where The Rounders and Monty Walsh. Very funny and great shows if you can get your hands on them.
