RIP - 3 friends in 18 days
« on: October 15, 2016, 05:55:42 pm »
Rough times, I guess my friends and I are at the age where losses are more frequent, but give me a break.
Goodbye to Joe Agnes, sharp tongued, good guitar slinger and an excellent wheel gunner.
Goodbye to Lee Cheevers, another wheel gunner and expert at all things 4 wheel drive.

Lastly, goodbye Skip Hammond, my fellow Gringo Pistolero, we spit lead all across Texas, worked many matches and phone banks for political and gun rights together. A Texas A&M graduate in chemistry, martial artist, a true student of pistol and knife craft. We ran our phone batteries down many times discussing Heinline to Hanzo the razor. Farewell, your sword will be missed.

Sorry for the loss of your friends.  Sounds like the kind of individuals that I would like a lot.

God Bless,

Richard

Sorry for your loss and for their family's loss.  Just about the time we get lined out it's time to go.

Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom.
It is the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves.

So sorry for your loss. A few years ago I lost my only 2 siblings within 6 weeks of each other. Both from cancer. Life is usually very good but when it is time for a bad streak God can serve up one hell of a dose of reality.  I pray for your quick recovery. As you already know the loss gets better but but will never go away.

My prayers are with you.

Had the same thing in 2014, Benny..... it's tough, but so are you....My sympathies and condolences to you for these losses.
"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
