  I just heard that a friend, a fellow airgun enthusiast, & repairman , was killed in a car wreck last month, that also killed his wife !  George Pena loved to work on old pumpers as much as I love to shoot them ! He will be missed !!

I never had the pleasure of meeting him. I spoke to him by phone a couple of times. He did a wonderful job at a great price on my old 50s model Sheridan.

My condolences to his family.
