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

    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?

    I hate losing the good ones.

    He was strong on RKBA. He was in good form as recently as the "background checks" 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.

    Dang.

    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.
