I wandered in here a long time ago. Started out looking for internet doublegun advertisers, back when dealers were first getting into that game. Eventually found this place. A wealth of great information and great people. Some, like Russ, Bill Wise, and Larry Barnes, sadly no longer with us.

I've received a few Emails asking if I had been insulted, lost interest, or prefered the company somewhere else.

None of the above. I have a two year old son, work has been tremendously busy, and my main and favorite hunting partner, my Father, is dying of lung cancer. Plus, it's bird season, you guys-give the blue screen a rest!

I'm in contact with some of the regulars at the email address, which is tedjs@usfamily.net Try me there.

I do my best to answer Darne questions (stupid looks, as always, are still FREE!) but I ask for a bit of patience. Mr. Gournet can always help, also.

Do me a favor, and get out there with a fine gun ( that includes old pumps!) and chase a bird or two behind a dog. We can talk more after the season is over.

Good Hunting!
Best,
Ted

Gosh! I just finished reading final post in this thread and am now relaxing a bit with the memories this thread has conjured up. I first found this board after I started buy the DGJ off the shelf each month at Barnes and Noble. When was that? About '94 or '95?? Other than the Stevens 311 my dad bought me on my 13th birthday many years ago, I had no double guns until I logged into this board (well, the DGJ helped a lot with the stimulus to buy a new one). The first one I bought was an Uggie model 30 from Dale Dalrymple, and it was on that transaction that I really came to appreciate doubles and, with Dale, the fine peope who associate themselves with this type of firearm. Oscar's writings caused my first Damascus purchase - a Remington side hammer that I still shoot with low pressure 2.5 inchers. Then came the over and unders, then the double rifle, then the large bore single-shot, then a really nice Merkel with fancy wood. Great memories, but best of all are the associations formed with some on this board, mostly only via cyber-space. I remember meeting you Pete, and Wonko (Charles) and many others for a get together and picture at the Benfield show in Vegas. Ah yes, thanks for the memories!!!!

Ted,

I had wondered if something was amiss. I am sorry to hear about your dad. I will say a pray for him and the entire family. Things change so much when dad leaves. It has been better than 25 years now, but I still miss mine.

Pete,
Thanks. Dad did twenty two years active duty in the USMC, ten years reserve, could run the 100 yard dash faster then me through high schol ( I set the state record in 1978, which, didn't last long, but, you get the point) could always box better than me, and instructed snipers with 7th (?) rifle corps. His skills with a rifle actually hurt his shotgunning, I believe, and he never caught on with a two-holer like I did. He also smoked like a steam engine for 50 of his 80 years. This wasn't unexpected. We knew something was up when he stopped going to the gym for his usual, every day, three hour workout (a jarhead to the bitter end!) and he had recently lost 20 of his 137 or so tough-as-shoe leather pounds of weight.

My only regret is that he will be a faint, vanishing memory to his only gandson. Since that is my only regret, I'm guessing I'm doing OK.

A great Thanksgiving to all. The grouse are a complete nuisance in Pine county this year, lots of them, flying from tree to tree. I used my 1957 vintage model 37 16 gauge to take the last one, off of a truly idiotic looking, tail drooping point from my knuckleheaded 10 year old English Setter.

My blessings, leave me in in awe, on a daily basis.

Best,
Ted

About your grandson, Ted: you don't seem the kind of guy to leave anything significant as a vanishing memory. My grandchildren know who their great-grandfather was, maybe in a more poignant and glowing sense than if they had known him. This is certainly the way of families of storytellers.

I need to dig through a couple of hard drives. I have a picture or two from that day. Oddly I don't remember you being there.

One thing I have noticed is none of the old folks play forum moderator and tell folks what is allowed.In the old days we covered about everything with no complains.Now days the newer folks jump on everything and for sure the sale section where I have seen some nice Winchester 22's as well a a S&W or two sell among other items.
