Wow, we have been just all over the place since we got the guns from you. We have been to Canada, Suriname and now getting ready to go to Santa Domingo. I would like to thank you for helping us get better in basketball by getting the guns all the way to Bermuda. This island has never had basketball equipment like this and our shooting percentage has jumped 50% since we started using them. Thanks a million and we will call you again for our basketball needs.
