Gentleman Jim Clark Jr - Clark Custom Guns
« on: December 05, 2015, 05:22:34 pm »
A very sad day indeed, I just learned from Yamil Sued, that Jim Clark Jr has passed, I was his range officer on many stages and fellow competitor as well, it was always a pleasure, good natured, soft spoken and a great shot as well as a consummate gunsmith. My thoughts and prayers are with his family, which includes Kay Clark Miculek and all the Mikulek family.

I had the chance to shoot one of his custom guns last Wednesday evening.  It is a great 1911!  I had forgotten that he had cancer.

Sad news!  Prayers for the family and friends who survive.

Back in my Bullseye competition days, the pinnacle pistol was a Clark Custom.

I had the chance to shoot several (owned by members of the club) both in practice and competition........ fine guns, indeed.


My sympathies to the family.
"Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are ruined...The great object is that every man be armed. Everyone who is able might have a gun."~Patrick Henry

For the Patriots of this country, the Constitution is second only to the Bible for most. For those who love this country, but do not share my personal beliefs, it is their Bible. To them nothing comes before the Constitution of these United States of America. For this we are all labeled potential terrorists. ~ Dean Garrison

"When it comes to the enemy, just because they ain't pullin' a trigger, doesn't mean they ain't totin' ammo for those that are."~PegLeg

"We are far out on a limb......the wind is blowing, people have saws....and the tree is old." ~ PegLeg

Listened to Michael's podcast this morning.

A heartfelt tribute to Mr. Clark from Mr. Bane.  You could tell there was a very long friendship between these two men through his words and the cracks in his voice as he spoke of his friend.

Sorry to hear of the loss to the Clark/Mikulek family and his friends.  I'm sure Saturday will be both difficult and celebratory in nature.  I wish them well! 

RIP Mr. Clark as you begin the next journey.
