    Wow. All those years and I thought it was a made up pic. Too bad he (appears) not to have made a cent off it.

    Now I feel bad...I've shot that guy a bunch of times. Here I was thinking he was a BG.

    RIP Lieutenant Oldshein.

    Thanks for your service and image.

    I don't think there is a serious shooter that has not unloaded a few rounds at that target. God Bless you, Lieutenant Oldshein....

    Me too. It's drawn in that '50s comic book style--I'm glad the model finally got some recognition before he died. It's the least they could do for him, after all the firepower sent his way over the years!

    I could have sword it was Freddy Worell. Sad to hear that they are dumping that target. Sometimes change is not for the better.

    Amen to that. I've shot him many, many times. Like others, though, I had no idea that it was a real person. Don't think I could shoot him now that I know he is a "good guy". RIP, sir.
