Tis a shame....he was a true hoplophile. Hopefully he has passed on to a bigger and better shooting range in the hereafter.

RIP Derby FALs

May you find Peace...

If there's a heaven his is full of unfired kits, plentiful receivers and cheap milsurp ammo.

Great guy both here and on FALFiles.

dadman, your links don't work. What was his full name? I used to do biz with Davis and Son on Jefferson. Seems they had a gunsmith named David.

Anybody know anything about derbyfals?

BTW, I'm guessing his screen name was a double entendre. There is a spot across from Louisville on the Indiana side known as Falls of the Ohio. Louisville is known as Derby City. Connection? Derby Falls? Derbyfals?

Godspeed, Derby FALs.

dadman posted his site, here 'tis http://www.derbyfals.com/home.htm

R.I.P. Derby FALs. :(

may you find peace and serenity.

I hate losing the good ones.

He was strong on RKBA. He was in good form as recently as the "background checks (http://www.thehighroad.org/showthread.php?t=262558)" thread.

The sun on your face;
The wind in your hair;
And a rifle in your hand.

So long, David. I wish I'd known you better.

RIP friend...

It puts a damper on the day, even if we never met in person. We all came to know him a little bit on THR.

My condolances to his family. Godspeed, DerbyFALS.

May 1, 2007, 11:20 AM
Bummer. :(

Godspeed friend, you will be missed.

May 1, 2007, 11:30 AM
He always shot straight. R.I.P.

May 1, 2007, 11:36 AM
Didn't know him, but I appreciated him. Blue skies and fair winds, fellow fal'er...

May 1, 2007, 12:00 PM
Saw his posting. Never really knew him, but from what he wrote, and seeing the way he thought, is enough to put a damper on the day.

What was the cause of death?

May 1, 2007, 12:06 PM
RIP, Derby. :(

May 1, 2007, 12:19 PM
RIP... Thoughts and prayers to his family.

I saw his posts here from time to time... seemed like a very helpful gentleman.

I believe this was his most recent post on THR, just under a month ago. It amazes me how quickly things change in this life. Most Recent Post (http://thehighroad.org/showpost.php?p=3276144&postcount=60)

I met up with Derby FAL at the KCR Machinegun Shoot a few years ago. He was a good man, and will surely be missed. :(

May 1, 2007, 07:49 PM
RIP, sir.

What all of y'all have written above, and I do now spill some strong drink in his memory

May 1, 2007, 10:32 PM
Another good one gone. RIP Derby.
