I like Cooper, but I never got to read most of what the older guys wrote.

Would Finn Aagaard be considered old school?

I would say so. I liked him, Cooper, Keith, and Capstick.

I really miss Reading Jack O Connor articles in Outdoor Life. I have all his books also ...

Skeeter. O'Connor was a bit before my time. Cooper I could never warm to.

Jordan, Tappan, Capstick.

Cooper spread too much crap to be taken seriously.

I bet he'd be a pisser to have a few beers with, though.

Reading Gun Rags for the author's opinion is the same as reading Playboy for the articles.

I'd rather hang out and have beer with Bill Jordan than you.

No offense.

Cooper was too much of a class monger for me even at a young age.

Keith was dead.

But what I really liked was the old newsprint copies of Machine Gun News I used to find.
