...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.
