My airgun reviews no more
« on: August 30, 2018, 01:56:42 PM »
Since there's no new topic button in the in memorium gate, I'll put this here. My friend and my airgun reviews guru That I've trade pellets and laughs with, Kenny Kormandy, lost his battle with cancer last night. His daughter announced it on Facebook this morning and it wound up on my home page. I too learned a lot from him and his videos. Was glad to share stuff with him. He will be missed. So say a prayer and a goodbye for him. Vio Con Dios, my friend.
