The Smallest Minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities. - Ayn Rand
I've shot a few matches with young Mr. Rico and he's an excellent shooter (and that's an understatement), but he's also got his head screwed on straight. He was the youngest shooter to have earned the Distinguished Rifleman badge, at 13 years and some months. There are many receipitients of that award who took longer to earn that badge (either after starting high power, or after getting their first Legs) than he took from *birth* to earn it. Darn fine shooter he is.
For some reason, "Bugs Mr. Rico! Zillions of them!" comes to mind. :-D From you desctiption, I have a feeling that this Mr Rico would react as well and appropriately as would Lt. Rico.
