There are a few of us who knew of his diagnosis several months back but didnĺt mention it here out of respect for him, his family, and his business.

Steve was a true friend of mine, he always made me welcome at his shop, which I visited many, many times over the past 15 + years. It was sensory overload. His place allowed me to see and handle stuff I would otherwise never have gotten remotely near. I feel highly fortunate to have shared a drink and victuals with him more than once. A wealth of knowledge and experience gone.

Rest easy in the bosom of God, my friend...

Sad news. Prayers to his family.
It's a big loss to the double gun community. Some of my most memorable gun deals were with Steve. He has big shoes to fill.

I didn't actually know Steve, but saw him and admired his tables at the Vegas show for many years. I did have a memorable deal with him maybe 25 years ago. I had my heart set on a Holland Dominion, and he listed a nice one. I called to ask some details about it, and after a few minutes he said something to the effect that I seemed to know what I was doing and that he'd be happy to ship the gun to me on approval. He didn't know me at all. The gun came, and I sent him a check. My son still has the Holland today.

Very sorry to hear of Steve's passing. Bought a few guns from him and each purchase was seamless. A good guy to do business with and a pleasure to talk to regarding guns in general. Prayers sent for the family.

So sorry to learn of his passing.
Does anyone know if his gun business will continue? A friend was interested in one of his doubles.

A good guy to deal with and a fine person. We are all diminished by his passing. May he rest in peace. Gil
