LFL,

I was not in his class as to firearm knowledge. In fact, I sought his advice on two or three firearm purchases.

Tee/Barry and I were close -- or about as close as you can get in this environment. We communicated regularly outside the forum.

Also included was Bob Mangrum, aka Capt. Scurvey. I had a grand scheme for us to meet. I was going to use enough of my vast accumulation of Frequent Flier Miles for the three of us to meet here and spend a few days here drinking and telling lies. We had a lot of fun talking about it, but it never happened because Bob was so inconsiderate as to up and die before we could do it. Barry and I were both really pissed at him for doing that.

Barry's last times (months) were not pretty. He had a couple of medical problems that worked at cross purposes -- couldn't fix one for fear of the other. He finally succumbed to one of them.

A truly memorable guy.

Take care,
Russ
