  3. Beautiful eulogy, Mas. Sounds like your friend, George, had it in his mind to die young as late as possible. Can’t beat that. God speed, to a Man whose life was purposeful and well-lived.

  4. My sincere condolences Mas for the loss of your dear friend George. Sounds like he was a great man, a good friend and a true gun ethuisest. God blessed him with a full life which he lived it doing things he enjoyed. My prayers go out to his family that God grant them strength in their time of need.

  6. I looked at George’s picture and it struck me, “…that’s going to be me”, with the gun on my hip, way older than folks think a guy should be to have a gun on their hip. At 52, I still have a way to go before that day, but it’s comforting to know I’ll be in good company.

    I can’t fathom how many people you must know, Mas, but it never ceases to amaze how you seem to be able to recall them at will out of your collection of people you’ve worked with over the years. I’m proud to be among the folks who’ve had the pleasure of your time and talents. I’m sure George was too. it’s great work you’re doing. You’re a national treasure and that should be recognized. Best regards!

  8. Mas, sorry to hear of your loss. As I never met the man I can only go by your description. He sounds like someone I would have liked. It seems that a lot of these pioneers are going to that great range where the smell of burned powder never dissipates.
    This points up the importance to get the younger generations involved in the shooting sports.

  10. I knew George from his gun store, Logansport Shooters Supply, and purchased 5 handguns from him. He was a Good Guy, a shooter and knowledgeable about firearms. He will be missed. My Thoughts and Prayers are with his family and friends.

  12. What a thoughtful and uplifting eulogy. My dad spoke of you often, Massad. Your book, “In The Gravest Extreme” was required reading and I am proud to have a signed copy on my bookshelf. Dad was passionate about learning and I know he thoroughly enjoyed spending time with you and learning something new each time. Thank you for being such a good friend to him.

  14. Thank you for the kind words Mas…Dad was a very fine man, husband, and father. We know that he his once again with my mother and the family they forged together will stay strong. I know he relished seeing you one last time this year and your warm greeting there meant very much to him. They seldom make men like him anymore.

  16. Mas, you were the subject of discussion at the dinner table with George and Wade most evenings, especially after their most recent visit with you. I think that day was one of the greatest events of his last year with us. You are a true friend to have written such a wonderful article about him. Thank you!

  18. George was my grandfather, and he always spoke very highly of you, Massad. He’s gifted me at least two copies of ‘In the Gravest Extreme’ and I’m glad he had a friend in you. Thank you for your kind words.
