was at the Hampton gun show this weekend (18-19mar) and had a chance to spend time with gus, learning, telling lies and swapping jokes.
it was great!
gus was handed work - gus donned the magnifier and went into "full mode fix-it!"
Amazing how wrong "pictures of somebody in the mind" can be. Did anyone up there ever ask Gus if he's coming back here? I don't know him like many of you guys, but I pour over his posts along with those of many other Members here and have learned lots. Man, have I learned. Always wonder why he hasn't graced these pages in so long.
I still go back and reread his posts once in a while, some of them I've read a half dozen times, they're that good.
Besides being a thoroughly knowledgeable M14 ACE he's got a very good way with words .
I'd like to buy his drinks and just listen .
