Howdy!

Worthless trivia...

Howard used to be a pard of mine in ye Way Back Daze. We shot together in the N-SSA. Much of what I know about U.S. M1855's and a few other CW guns comes from Howard. He was also my Troiani print contact.

It's a great book! Howie was a colleague and co-worker of mine back in the Milwaukee Public Museum days in the 80s. I moved to Texas and he moved to Wyoming, Pennsylvania, California and back to Cody where he died. Pat is a real sweetheart and his little girls have grown into mature young ladies. I sure miss him, his knowledge and his off-color humor!
