Bob was the earliest influence I remember in my love affair with guns. As a young kid, I would walk in the store on South Street and he would treat my like any other customer, knowing full well I wasn't buying anything. He taught me a lot about guns, and when I was running my own home based gun shop down the street from his house on Washington, he was there a lot, teaching me stuff and giving me a couple really cool old gun posters. What a man with a legacy.....Rest in Peace, sir.

Even when I was just a youngster my Uncle Bobby helped me to appreciate guns. I will miss him and his witty conversations. RIP Uncle Bobby and say hello to my Aunt Kitty for me.
