It is with great sadness that I report on the passing of a good friend. Dennis passed away late in December. Many Trapshooters will remember Dennis his contributions to the trapshooting world are great. One can hardly walk on to any major shooting event without seeing Dennis's contribution in gun and stock design. The list of top shooters using guns built or modified by Dennis is long and includes National Champions in both Trap and Sporting clays. I will miss our long conversations about shooting and shotgunning theory. Dennis you were a true friend to me and many in the shooting world.
