John AKA Full-clip IIRC passed away from pancreatic cancer. He was a great guy, would give you the shirt off his back if you needed it. Vietnam Vet, a true patriot! He will be missed. This happened VERY suddenly, rapid weight loss etc.... May God rest his soul! And he got to see the AWB go away.

Y'all, I wasn't super close to him, but I thought very highly of the guy. He was super knowledgeable about the AR platform. Would you do him the honor of keeping this up top for a while? TIA.

I'm a full time teacher and I can't get on here from school due to the firewall.

Godspeed Full-clip.



"An Irish Blessing"

May the road rise up to meet you.

May the wind be always at your back.

May the sun shine warm upon your face.

And the rains fall soft upon your fields.

And until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of his hand.

R.I.P. brother

Ya, he came into the shop and asked if he could hang for a while before he went to kemo (sp) the owner was like hell ya, you are ALWAYS welcome. Man, think about how much he liked weapons and the people he hung with. He wanted to hang at the gun shop as long as he could. Bummer!!!

He was a humble, great guy.
