Recently lost my Father-In Law - Maurice Benner of WI. This is to Honor him. He was a great man always Fair to me and always treated me with Respect. I did not get into shooting until I was in my early 40's and it was because of him. He taught me how to shoot and reload and do it all with the utmost safety. He was a fan of the big bore handguns and everything of his we shot always brought the boom and I picked up on his love of big bore revolvers. When I went to buy my first gun I told him I wanted a 38 Special ,he looked at me and laughed he said you need to get a 45 Auto so that is what I got and that is where it all started 25 years ago. Shooting with him was always fun and never boring and I have many great memories of shooting with him but he will be dearly missed by myself , my wife and family.
