    Is it time for a rematch? A do over? There was not a clear winner.

    No clear winner? Someone may have cheated? What actually happened? I thought they shot and the Doc won.

    A rematch may be more interesting as Longshot is missing part of a limb.

    There can never be a better Rocky movie than the first one, sequels are never as good as the original. The Grudge Match is the same, a new one can only become a pale imitation of the real BigDon vs Dr. Longshot match, a time and point in Internet trap shooting history that can't be duplicated, just like the Grand American has become since the move to Sparta its time is past, and BigDon will always be known as the looser. All hail the Grudge match one and only CHAMP Dr. Longshot, AKA Gary Bryant.

    I can truthfully say I was there and so can about 7 or 8 hundred others who were lining the road behind the traps at the CC. It would be interesting if anyone out there in cyberspace has a picture of that event they could post on here. A picture of that trap shooting history should go to the HOF poll barn building, storage at least. Brad

    Posting pictures like this used to get you banned or a thread closed in other places.

    I have corresponded with Big Don after we more or less developed a not so friendly attitude toward each other that lingered for quite some time ... I came to find out he is not really a bad guy, just got a delivery that is a little on the abrasive side and he really means no harm ... He is probably the type of guy anyone would like to have for a best friend when push comes to shove and the chips are down ... I have been told that I seem to have a less than sweet and loving attitude by a couple of people who really didn't know me , but once they got to know me they could not help but Love me ... (This is of course my opinion ) ... I guess we all have our little sticky spots at times, (not me of course) but life goes on ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

    Those of us who know BIGDON realize he's one of the good ones. With those "drop dead" Rock Hudson good looks he might have gone far in the movie industry but instead decided to provide us with plenty of his light hearted entertainment. Even more amazingly, as a former Marine his written vocabulary lacks those salty expressions we could expect from one of the brethren. Hats off to the two individuals who's actions contributed so much to a worthy cause!

    You know that old saying, "If you don't have anything good to say about someone, don't say anything"

    After all the swipes this guy took at me on that old worn out site all I have to say about him is,

    Roast away Pal. Medium well please.
    You gotta remember though, when you are roasting something there is always a chance you will get your fingers burnt.

    Both these guys were fun to deal with and good sports. I can't remember how much money we raised but it was a tidy sum I do know. Thanks to both of them. The rules were 25 hand pulled 25 yard 4 hole targets and 25 voice pulled 2 hole 30 yard targets. If I remember right the Doc won the 4 hole and bigdon the 30 yards and the Doc was the winner overall, though I may have it backwards. Brad

    Did he call you Gary, or Dr., or LongSHOT, OR, as he posted on that old worn out site,

    "I even see some idiot over there wants another grudge match between me and longsh!t and that isn't happening." I was sent the quote from someone that still looks at that POS site.

    You would think that after winning the LOSERS trophy belt buckle he would want another chance to be a winner and maybe get a brick.

    Funny how some people will say one thing to your face, or as you said, over the phone then take a swipe at you when they are preaching to their "buds".

    The phrase "TWO FACED" comes to mind.

    The good Dr. got a brick. The other guy rhymes with it.

    Is it possible that while LS is being polite and sportsmanlike......
    Someone may have been sticking a pin in the Dr.'s bad leg?

    To get the other side I called BD. He said to tell FG and flyers that they are late to party again. That for years, that's years, when typing GB's name he typed it Longsh!t or Longsh?t so make out of it what you wish. He also said those two garbage collectors have zero credibility with most shooters anyway. He also said that Gary and he had their day, raised a bunch of money, gave some people something to talk about even years afterward. BD also wanted to thank either FG or flyers, he didn't know which, for posing for the buckle he received. He has been told the likeness to them is almost exact.

    It will be interesting if Joe edits this thread as he has done in the past.

    Since you, lefty, are this guys messenger boy I have a question you can ask him the next time you have to call him.
    Since I know he comes on here himself, why did he have you act as his mouthpiece?

    Gary I kind of thought I might have it backwards, I remembered it worked out opposite of how I thought it might. Don won the 25 that was last but I couldn't remember the order for sure. I was pretty busy at that time and didn't get to watch all the match. I received reports from Rodger who was the ref.

    The grudge match was a one time deal, never to be equaled. I remember a lot of us talking it up for about 6 months. You two guys fighting with each other on the keyboard is what made it. I'd just add a little gas to the fire when the flames were dying. Brad

    Does this guy wear a skirt? They share the same skirt!

    I hope LS continues to be man enough to be the polite one. Whooping Don twice would serve no purpose.

    Well Doc, I have no doubt "Don" is a nice guy in person, and probably in general, but you must understand there is a performance level one must bow to 'over there'.

    There you have to be on a team, not just a person. So ... if he would show any respect for you 'there', he would be sure to upset those who need the group support. Original thought is so rare, if it happens the others need to make it sound like it was a group effort.

    One would think he would be strong enough to stand up to the group, and treat you with the same respect in cyber-land as you say he does in person. But, if he feels the need to use your 'sign-on name' as a punching bag to promote his thread, then he fits in where he feels the need to do so.

    Be careful not to pile too high on BIG DON as "represented" by Leftout. :) One of the largest signs of respect was later given to LS. After the spanking given by LS and his trusty Seitz BIG DON went out and got himself one of those Seitz.

    Potty attitude and all could be he found it wasn't the gun.

    Hey Doc, "BIGDON" just told "lefty" the next "grudge match" needs to be at a Club where you are "banned". If he is going to treat you the same way in person, as he does in cyber-land, that is the only way he can "win".

    He did not "say" that Doc, it was satire about his actions on a site you are banned from and can not respond to him. He is using you as a punching bag for the mental-midgets that want join in. He knows you are banned from there, and that makes his actions much lower than what other people do that he wants to throw stones at for "bashing" the "ATA".

    This event was the causation point for the start of this forum. I asked told by BRAD DYSINGER to post this event on another worn out place and to make an OSTA announcement. Immediate and permanent ban. After that it was a group effort.
