    Never heard of him either.  Had to use google.  Yep, comparatively, he was big potatoes.

    Well, yeah, sorta.  But he doesn't really qualify, in my mind anyway, as one of the "many 'beloved' useless celebrities kicked the bucket in 2016".  He actually produced something, rather than was famous for, you know, being famous.

    You just never know what the New Year will bring.  First GG, and then Feud shows up.  Thought y'all had done died and gone to Texas.  (Unless, maybe . . . .  Are y'all the real GG & F, or are you robot doubles?)

    Next thing you know, Coronach and SLM will show up.    :cool

    I messaged Coronach a while back, and he is busy with life.  You won't see him back.  SLM left in a huff - again - and I doubt he will return.  He was a greatly knowledgeable member, but he had trouble tolerating our frequent nonsense. (Which, let's be honest, is half of what this board is, so tolerance is a requisite.  :neener)

    We won't see Coronach again... Ever?

    Also, SLM might be back. Last we heard, he was on assignment overseeing the building of a juvenile corrections facility, I believe.

    I'm still around. Mostly of FaceBook, but I drop by once in a while to see what you folks are up to.
    I've gained few more Mosins, one is an M44, one a hex from 1928. A few Grand mosins (son's stash) both Finn's, with a Swedish Mauser in 6.5x55.
    Gained an SP101 with a beautiful IWB from Adam's Holsters.
    Various other purchases and such.
    Mostly busy with RL and writing.
    We help out MadMike (Michael Z. Williamson) at the gun shows and such.
    Have a blast just being surrounded by all that gun grease and metallic swag.
    Still here. Thinking about restarting teh WTA Weekly show, but on Twitch Tv.
    Anyways, have a great day guys!
