I’m glad somebody else pointed it out first. I was scared for your nose gear. Your landings make me feel better about mine. Apparently it isn’t the “glass jaw” I operate it like.

Please continue to treat it like a "glass jaw". When I learned to fly back in the dark ages, even with a Cessna 150, I was taught that the nose wheel is for taxiing only, NOT FOR LANDING!
