    I once went shooting in the back hills of Oklahoma with Okie (He had a short reprieve from the salt mines) - and afterwards we went and ate pizza. That dude could put away a large like no one's business!!

    Anyways, I miss Okie. I miss OxCops and AlexKnight, SideArmor (Patricia), and Mrs VR.

    WTF happened to this place?? Even my avatar no longer demonstrates who I am, or that I was super-duper-gold-plus-contributor-for-life or whatever the title was. What a mess.

    I last found it double-buried inside/below "Leisure" section or somesuch.

    I think about Shar and CJ about 5 times a week..... long since and still. And the near-two handfuls of others that have passed in years past.

    FREAKIN ALLERGIES!!

    Neh, no sweat. I guess I'm just damn near impossible to get rid of LOL! (Sheezit, just ask the former Mr. Wilson **snort** - oh 2nd thought, ah. Just NO. Don't do that... and he claimed a yr ago he hadn't been here in eons, so it's unlikely he'd even see it.)

    Okie had the best mullet of any dude I ever saw. Bro looked like a cross between an 1980s action movie villain and a lumberjack.

    Nicest guy in the world. I miss him too. :(

    As for Rabbi, he's a Mod over on Bore Site with Eric.

    I think a lot about GioaJack (and the nonstop ball busting back then in the reloading forum) when I'm reloading. He was a wealth of intellect when you PM'd him a question, or if someone genuinely needed help in the forum.. but he'd pepper it with his sarcasm and humor, which made it even funnier.

    Okie I've thought about many times as well. Place just hasn't been the same w/o him.

    CJ is another one. I enjoyed his threads about guitars, globe trotting around the world working on oil rigs, etc. How dramatically his life changed in the final few years...

    A cross between a 80's action movie villian, a lumberjack, and a sasquatch! Only he was bigger in real life than a sasquatch!

    And yes, incredibly real and incredibly nice.

    Oh my hell, yes! GioaJack!
    But he and CJ ... had some amazing phone calls with each. YIKES the stories Jack had to tell, and the World's Greatest Sense Of Humour :hearts:
    And CJ's tales of learning full-immersion Italian ..... :ladiesman:
    Long gone days, Gents. Long long ago gone days....

    Thanks! There was a time I took a break from GT and headed over to a basketball forum for Portland Trail Blazer fans. But I've been back regularly now for over a year.

    I joined up last month with The Bore Site, but even then I don't frequent it as much as GT. Unfortunately, that may change as GT continues to change for the worse (IMO).

    I too miss Okie. He never had a mean word to say to anyone. He loved that truck as well.

    Jack could make something as seemingly boring as a doctors office visit, into a novel worthy of a Steven Spielberg production.

    I remember once in particular.. Jack's bone cancer was in full swing and he had broken his back... and he joked he was at his doctor's office and the doctor told him he "shouldn't be able to walk, so he waived as he walked out the door". Several responded in the thread with concern about this but Jack proceeded to tell us in very colorful ways how his bones were the "consistency of jello" and then explained how he had broken his back numerous times since his diagnosis and it was no big deal....

    I'm sitting here chuckling thinking on that one..

    We had his book (back when there WAS a "we"). It's not here, so it must be either in stg in Flag or similar.
    And his reloading vid on YT? HILL-FREAKING-LARIOUS :dancingbanana::dancing::cheers:
