Tom, thank you for letting us all know of Buck's passing. I know you were friends, and I am sorry for your loss. I hold you both in the utmost regard. I only recently came to know Buck (through your recommendation), but had heard about him for years. I learned that everything I had heard was true. I was fortunate enough to have Buck re-do 2 sets of Pigeon Gun barrels recently, and his work was outstanding. I will never sell those guns.
Two words come to mind when thinking of Buck, Steadfast and True.
It was a honor to get to know him, even briefly. I will be sending prayers of strength to Brenda, as she adjusts to life without Buck.
I fully support Brother Drew's recommendation to create a Buck Hamlin trophy in honor of all that he has done for the Double Gun community.
Buck's loss hits close to home.
