    Norm Flayderman

    Y'all may have already known this and discussed it while I was away but I didn't know the gun community lost Norm Flayderman.

    I remember getting my first copy of his most excellent guide to antique firearms way back in early marriage. Actually got to go through it in detail on an occasion when I was home, sick in bed with the flu. The immediate education on all things having to do with 19th century American firearms is still vivid in my memory for its startling impact. Later editions of Flayderman's guide have always graced the book shelves here.

    I called him on an occasion with a question of some sort. Don't remember if it was over a gun I had spied in a mail-out catalog he used to provide or if it was just a general question. Wish I could remember what it was now. He was very kindly over the phone and treated me as if my call was the most important thing on his agenda that day. A fine gentleman and an important gun personality for many years.

    People like that add something to our lives, in the way they treat us.

    Wow - I wondered what happened to him, as his was the definitive guide to antique arms. He was actually a "neighbor" of sorts; we lived just about a mile away from each other in New Milford, CT. Apparently he had his own shop there for a while but got out of that end of the business before I moved to town.

    RIP, Norman.
