    I know there is slim to no chance of this, but when I was living in Houston, I worked as a Range Safety Officer with a man named Rey Abad. He was from the Phillipines, and returned often to shoot IPPSC matches there, as well as other places around the world. I'm pretty sure he was a Grand Master level competitor. As I said, I know it is highly unlikely, but I'm sure there are a few of you guys out there that shoot competitions, so there is a chance I suppose that he may be known to some of you. I'm trying to get in touch with Rey but I don't have a current phone number for him..




    thanks for any help guys!

  2. I think he's here in Cebu City now. I heard he's supposed to teach some classes over at our range this weekend. He regularly shoots at matches here in the Philippines. I don't know how to contact him but if I see him at the range I'll ask.

    BTW check out the first page of the Pictures Thread 08 in this forum. I posted a picture of him.

    You may contact this fellow, who's a columnist in our local paper and who announced yesterday Rey Abad's classes: knrama@gmail.com

    You could also probably try to convince him to join BOG. :)

  7. Finally got hold of Rey Abad. Fancy that, his office is about 200 meters away from mine. And yes, he has a Glock.:supergrin:
