Games played with the ball and others of that nature, are too violent for the body and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun therefore be your constant companion of your walks."  Thomas Jefferson

I didn't know him but I'm sorry to hear that none the less. I've lost family members and I know how painful it is. His family, friends and even pets if he had any will deeply miss him I know.

. So very to hear the news but thank you Mike for letting everybody know. I enjoyed Toms writing, his steadfast opinions and it was obvious he loved airguns. He WILL be missed among the forums. Thoughts and prayers are with the family. And even the pets, good of Sqrl Klr for pointing out that they greive too. May the pellet tins be overflowing and the HPA neverending.

I never knew of him, but often read his posts here.
Sad to see anyone go, but at least it was peaceful.
Prayers all around.
