Jerry, I was at the 2012 IRC when your firing pin broke…
I will say that as always and prior times I ran into you and spoke with you, you are always incredibly gracious and easy to talk to. One of your S&W team mates once said to me that “Jerry is the most ego less person he had ever meet”. Can you comment on that? How do you keep it in check? to have confidence but not have it go to your head?
Second, a mechanical thing. You mentioned on hotshots that the firing pin that broke was an after market. Will you share what it was? The cylinder and slide ones have a rep for breaking, was that what you were using? Jerry, as a final comment. I, like many, have tremendous respect for you. Many of us “also rans” at the IRC had terrible mixed feelings when you were granted the reshoot after the mechanical problem. It really hurt because none of us really believed that if it happened to one of use we would have gotten the reshoot. You, Rich, Neil certainly, but the rest of would have been out of luck.
When I watched hotshots the other night, and hearing you specifically asking Art about the other 300 of us that were there and you said “Its important that everyone gets the same treatment” it really changed my perspective and I have more respect for you than ever before.
How long it took before you got to where you can throw a moon clip in the general direction of your revolver and have it land in the cylinder.
