      Congratulations Tommy. I have had the privilege to shoot in competitions with Tommy. He can always be counted on to humbly encourage and support everyone on the squad no matter what their skill level. Tommy is a true gentleman and asset to the shooting sports. I know he will skillfully lead ArmaLite to greater heights. You will be missed around NOVA.
