Default BLOG: 2010 NRA Show

From Matt's blog:

Quote:
Sorry about the late blog, this week's been pretty hectic. We are getting ready for Audra's brother's high school graduation party. Trying to get things straightened up, trying to get the pool opened for the summer and trying to train for a fight, on top of all that, and it just got hectic. The UFC hasn't told me I can release this yet, but I'm going to go ahead and say that I've done my paperwork to fight Ricardo Almeida on August 7th, in Oakland, CA. A lot of you know my history with the UFC, I've never turned down a fight and this is who they asked me to fight next.

Last weekend, I went to the 2010 NRA show. As some of you might imagine, I'm a life member of the NRA. I went there to help Browning and Otis. Friday night I even taped a commercial for Otis and when I get my hands on that I will let you know. Had a great time at the show, I got to see some old friends and see the latest product out. I hate traveling by myself, so I took my father-in-law, Jim, with me. He's a big reason why I'm in the shooting and hunting industry and he likes to go to shows like this and look around.

Besides, everything I just told you about, I also just got back from a trip to Ft. Bragg, NC. I did a 4-hour seminar and then got to go around the base and see all the cool stuff they've got. It's amazing what the technology is like today. They are shooting real guns at screens and they can simulate just about anything. I think I'll have pictures for that for next week's blog.

To wrap it up, my buddy Pat just broke another world record and I've got the video of him doing it. I like to call this the "got 'em" video:

Finally, here is the Bible verse for this week:

Congratulations to Audra's brother and we will sure be looking forward to Matt's next fight, lucky Michelle and Melissa that it's in CA.

Perseverance pays off!!
