  • Member Abner

    I was sent this yesterday in regards to abner. Abner was a regular in chat as well as on the boards here, he had been sick for awhile and had had a relapse. I talked with his wife in mid-late February but he seemed to be doing a little better.

    When I talked to Abner he was always talking about going to the range and shooting with his son as well as tweaking a nice little 223 he had. He also enjoyed plinking with the 22's. He was always looking for a way to get out for a couple of hours to hit the range. He also did alot of trading with members here and without failure he always made sure you came out ahead on the trade.

    Rest in Peace Abner and may you forever see pleasant days on the shooting range.

            Abner was my friend, we had several face to face meetings. I have also had the pleasure of meeting his wife and son. We did a bunch of trading and sometimes just talking. He took me to several stores that sell reloading supplies, and guns. This is my first time writing something like this, so bear with me. Abner was a real gentleman, a man of his word. He will be greatly missed.

              Sure hope he saves us a spot on the bench there.

                I too did some trades with Abner. He always made sure that you came out on top of any trade no matter how much you protested. I talked to him on the phone few times always a gentleman. May he rest in peace. RD

                  Abner was an unmet true friend for me. Never got the meet the man but spent many hrs on the phone and in chat room with him. As it has been said if you did trade with him he made sure you came more than even. Still got 5 boxes of Moly coated 50gr V-max setting here in front of me that he claimed his 223 didn't like. We started out trading cast then it went to everything. Seeveral of us in the old chat room had a running joke about we were going to build a Johnny Cash Mig jet. Abner found a mostly complete Mig nose section and it took off from there. Going to miss that guy. That is the truly good thing about this board, when you get to know one of the guys they become family in the real sense of the word. He may have got the jump on us to head to the range up there but he will be setting there waiting and smiling when we make it too. Rest in Peace until we meet again.

                    Abner and I talked about a lot of things in chat. And he asked me a lot of questions about building his own AR.

                    He commented once he was having problems getting certain parts and since I had his addy, I sent them to him. He was a bit perplexed when I told him to use them and do not worry about cost since I just had them lying around.

                    Anyway, when Poacher called me about his passing it was felt as if I knew it was coming since he had been sick for such a long time.

                    Abner, may you rest in peace.

                      Never met the man, but God Bless and maybe we will meet someday beyond the pearly gates.

                        The veil of life is a scary barrier for some but one we all must pass through. Those through it know that our lives here are merely a testing ground. Abner is there and experiencing his rewards. The great preacher Smith Wigglesworth prayed for his wife to come back to life and she did--She chewed him out for bringing her back and said it was a beautiful place she was in. He did not do it again. Hope when we get there that Abner has the ranges ready with padded benches and that the sun is always at our back.
