I (and You) will have some difficulties with language, but I hope that here are not many English teachers:oops:
Been shooting more and less seriously few years.

I never knew that. I always stayed in Oulu. Had many pleasant evenings there even in the winter

I was resistant to it but then gave in on my 3rd trip. After that it was normal

Welcome,

Met some of the guys from Finland at SHOT Show here, they run


I am looking at their Särmä line of Merino wool offerings, good stuff there.

And they run a bar, how cool is that

Well, we all envy those Varusteleka guys.
Did You notice that most of Finnish people have weird or twisted sense of humour?

No stranger than my sense of humor.

Maybe that is why I always had a good time there

Welcome.
You will like it here.
I have been looking at some of your guys boots, Jalas M05 to be specific. Apparently I have very wide hobbit feet (13 US or 46 Euro) and most Finnish boots run pretty wide so I figured I would try some more of your guys stuff out. So far all my Finnish products (M39 VKT and Sako) have been quite nice.
Any advice on some good leather boots?

Thanks. My feet are shaped like a wedge and despise all US boots.
