    1. Hey David & Kris,
      We have been following along with your blog for a while now. I tried to contact you from your blog but I don’t think it has the option to or comment as far as I know. I would be interested in a Kaufman Group! I hear there was quite a few made, though I only know of 5. It would be an elite! There is a nice couple in Florida that just bought a K47 that I have been in touch with this year. Yay!, Tadji connected us, she’s very nice and immediately recognized our Kaufman on Instagram! We will definitely drop you guys an email very soon!

      Warmest wishes,
      Ronnie & Michelle
