    One of the potential pitfalls of training a "good hunting dog", is that it can quickly become an excuse rather than a goal.

    I don't think "obsolete" is accurate in the difference between the Original and Revised editions. Two notable differences are the force fetch method has changed (as shown in the Fetch DVD), and he...

    I'll throw my two pennies in on the support. I would probably NOT put the big lens you're looking at on a Gimbal type head. I would invest in a good set of legs and a nice ballhead (Kirk or RRS),...
