I just found out, Doss died this weekend, apparently about the time I was getting ready to go to a gunshow, hoping to see him there. He did more for our hobby than I'll ever be able to repay him for.

Here's Type14, Ronin48, Alsaka, and Me at the July 2016 AGCA show.

Rest Easy my friend... Banzai!

I didn't pay to much for that old Arisaka, I just bought it a little bit too soon!

All, Ruth passed away Monday night, around 9 pm according to an email I got from Riceone. Doss told me many times, how Ruth was the driving force behind Banzai these last several years. I have no words.


Ruth White Obituary of sorts.

I don't think that it is possible to overstate what they have done for our hobby. RIP indeed
