    Lee Hamel passed today. He and I belonged to the same gun club in Ohio. He was an IDPA shooter, Bullseye, Rifle and a retired police officer. We had a lot of fun at the range. You could not meet a nicer man. You may not know his name, but you have probably seen his work. He was an apprentice to Cecil Brooks and when Cecil became ill, Lee finished up the last two rifles that were presented under Cecil's name. After Cecil passed in 2007, Lee took over making the Presentation Rifles at the NRA Annual Banquet in his own name. This is Lee on the right with Cecil. And Lee making the presentation. This is one of the Cecil's rifles that Lee worked on. He was every bit as good as Cecil. RIP my friend

    I was on a rifle team in high school. We had a 50’ firing range right in the main school building, next to my JROTC classroom. We used to practice regularly after school and were allowed to come in and shoot before school and at lunch, with very little supervision. This was in the mid-eighties.

    Gun shops had a smell. It was a mix of gun oil, burnt powder, and bull carp from lots of people's stories. I'm gettin older and fewer stores have that smell. The last one I went into could be described as the Wet Seal of the gun world. I'm just not cool enough for that kind of store. Give me the gun shop of 40 years ago.
