In my short time here I've seen many posts by Rico and many references to him... and had no idea that he was no longer here until tonight. I've spent the last few hours getting to know him and what happened and starting to catch up a little.

What is wonderful inspite of this loss is that Rico lives on today and will for many, many tomorrows... sharing himself and helping people... through his posts on this wonderful forum. Few have the opportunity to influence so many, as Rico has through this forum. I'm toasting Rico as I write this and my condolences to those who were closest to him, especially you Vincent. I look forward to getting to know Rico ever better as I spend more time here.

God keep you blessed Rico.

DHart he was my friend but he was a good friend to a number of the SuperStock bunch and a few others outside of SuperStock. He was what used to be called a "cut up" meaning a fun lover who did not care if people were laughing with him or at him......as long as they were laughing he was happy.

He helped so many new people in SuperStock going out of his way to make them feel comfortable with all the joking and thread thieving pirates that might have been scared away if he had not held their hands for the first couple days

To this day I am still not quite sure how a Hawaiian ended up on a Sioux Indian Reservation in Montana Part of the mystery that was Doug/Ricochet. Of course he called it "On da Rez in Montanny"

Wow. I haven't been on these forums in a while (since early 09) but I've started back in since I have finally gotten some time and have begun kicking around the idea of a Super Stock and this is what I find.

I know just about everyone knew years ago .... but for this is a very sad day. I loved Rico's posts. he was always willing to help and share his ideas. The last few years have been rough on Rimfire Central and the old guard.

I hope Doug is at peace. His presence on earth is still remembered fondly by me even if only from interactions on an internet forum.

We all miss him. I ended up with what might be the last barrel he ever bought. I built a rifle around it in his honor, "Ricochet's Tribute":

Yeah I need to get onto the process of saving some or most of his pictures but time has been my enemy lately. Cars, computers, my wife gfetting sick just took so much time away.

I feel so crappy I have not gotten that started.

BAD

Big boomers after big boomers and now they are started to talk flood almost a a year after last year. Riverfront Park and other places already under 10 ft of water if I heard the news right..

Tornadoes every day for the last 3 or 4 it seems. The people here do not deserve another year like last years. I will be fine even though I am only 1/2 From the river I live at the very top of the highest hill in the area. EVERYTHING is down hill in all directions from my house.

Thanks for asking.
