    My thanks to Admin for adding Lupeloff and Smegma. I remember BrianCav from way back...maybe the first member to pass on...sadly for some reason life got too hard for him. LUPELOFF'S daughter was the one shot in a hold up and almost died. She was a member here also. Smegma had a different user name when he finaally had to leave the forums...I think he suffered a stroke.

    I was friends with SALBO and he really helped me a lot on a personal basis with my drinking problem at the time. In fact some of my best gunshow fun was with him. That was my buddy and I miss him a lot. I remember shooting silenced handguns out his office window and weed eating around his house! Man, that was a job! But, he paid me well. LOL I remember one time I was helping in his shop and the air compressor for the aluminum oxide went out! Talk about a mess of things! I had two SAR-1's a SAR-2, and a Rem. 870 to finish.

    I remember helping him find parts and deals at shows, and loading ammo up for him. I bought my dad a mint Yugo SKS from SALBO about 5 years ago that to this day is unfired. It will always stay in the family.

    I remember Lupeloff. There was a local lawyer here in town that was a friend of SALBO's and mine. Good ole Lupeloff sent that lawyer a much needed part practically free to fix his gun. I hate to hear about the other guys passing. May God rest their souls.

    Yep. I emailed his father once or twice. I didn't realize some on the list had died, particularly C4550. Zouave and Redstar were good friends. Rick especially. We exchanged personal items, I still have a couple WWII rifles he sent me and a bunch of pics of him and Linda. Miss you Rick.

    Rest well Ernie, you deserve it.
    Very sorry to hear about Ernie passing. In a former life I purchased several pieces of equipment from the company Ernie used to run in Cincinnati. That's where we first met.

    I want to say I am thankful to have known a few of these men. Rick (REDSTAR) and Richard (Zouave) were very hands on and wanted so bad to form and create the Curio n Relic forums. There passion was contagious and I miss them dearly. I still talk to Richard's wife (Maria) and two sons (John & Richie) couple times a month on Facebook. They are doing great with lots of family & friends around them. Have never heard from Rick's wife but I am sure she is doing fine.

    It is 2013 and I miss these guys. I am going to start teaching my older son everything about Guns Network in how to run and manage the week to week responsibilities as well and the accountables / store and online accounts. Should something happen to me. We still need majority of our membership to step up and help us out as we no longer have companies advertising. We are depending on the members to step up. I am tired of companies saying one thing and then doing another...

    Bob (Old Grump) wanted to be cremated and there will be no service. His ashes will be spread on the gun range at his home. My brother Mike and I will give him a 2 gun salute with our M1 Grand rifles, per Bobs request. We would like to thank everybody for their comments, knowing that you will all miss him as much as we do. Thanks again,

    Wow. I've been gone for a long time. Long enough that I had to register and get my name back. I spent most of my time in the C&R section, and am saddened to see the names of all of the regulars I used to interact with so often, gone.

    Just kinda letting this set in, and am saddened.
