    That's cool, Rick. I was a munitions maintenance/ bomb and bullet loading crew chief on the lowly, but fun to work on, A-37.

    Agreed
    My BS Meter needle never moved when talking to Rick

    Matter of fact, my "straight shooter" good guy meter pegged

    So unlike salesmen not to be bullchitters. ..Rick was refreshing.

    You impressed me Aranda ...that ain't easy to do
    SS did well to get you


    side note...Your padn'r did good too.
    even though he was nowhere near as knowledgeable about the TMs , he didn't try to "pretend" to and wasn't afraid to say "i'm not sure, but can find out"
    Excellent way to handle it, rather than trying to blow smoke up someone's azz
    (like many vendors do... not knowing the guy they may be talking to knows substantially more about it than them)


    ..L.T.A.

    I got shocked when Rick shook my hand monday. He is the energizer bunny, no doubt!!!

    "find a job you love, and you'll never work a day in your life" Rick sounds like he lives that.

    He knows his shit. He used to build Prochem units in the 90's and was later phone tech support for them.

    Rick is one sharp cookie! :cool:
