    Walter Birdsong (Black-T) has passed away...

    ...and the firearms world is poorer for it. I was just informed that Walter died this morning. For those not familiar with Walter Birdsong, he was the owner/inventor of Birdsong gun finishes, more commonly known as Blact-T and Green-T. Walter has truly "been there and done that", far beyond what most would have ever guessed. He was truly a patriot and a warrior. He was a great friend to law enforcement, the military, and gun owners everywhere. He was also an incredibly nice man and a true gentleman. If you ever had the pleasure of actually visiting him at his shop, he would literally talk your ear off. You had to set aside a couple of hours if you planned on dropping by. I am honored to have known him. Rest easy Walter.

    Gonzo,

    I'm terribly sorry to hear that news. Some of us were talking about him just recently. I wish I had gone to visit since he's in the same county.

    Do you know what happened? As far as I know, he was in good health.

    Don't know. Cliffy just posted the news on the Mississippi Gun Owners forum. I have not seen Walter in quite a while, so I don't know how his health has been. I kept saying I was going to drop by and visit to catch up and I kept putting it off. I wish I hadn't.

    I more fitting epitaph could not be said. Rest in Peace Mr. Walter sir, you will be missed.

    I never met the man personally, but I did enjoy my time with him on the telephone. I was amazed when I called and he answered his own phone. That's unheard of in this day and age.

    I had a few conversations with him, and enjoyed every one of them. I managed to learn something new each time too.
