His best Friend, "Beans" (who also posts using other handles), recently posted to the doublegunshop forum that Walt had passed on; but before checking out, had bequeathed to him the moniker "The L.C. Smith Man". Based on my personal experience with Walt, I wouldn't put much stock in any information he'd provided; and based on Brother Bean's posts, I'd hold his opinions in the same regard. There are a fair number of forum members here with far more knowledge of Smith guns than Walt ever had; but Cliff White could certainly lay claim to the current title "The L,C. Smith Man" as regards Smith guns and company artifacts, and Jim Stubbendieck as to sheer volume of knowledge on Smith guns.|
