    Unhappy Tony Tyrer. Gone but not forgotten.

    Morning.



    Today marks the first anniversary of the passing of my Good Friend Tony Tyrer also known on the BBS as Sniper22.




    Still missing you mate.

    Definitely not forgotten.

    I'll be getting the Mk3 out and whacking some spinners in remembrance of da big man. I think he'd prefer that over any oversentimentalising...

    RIP Tony

    I am sure that he is out shooting in perfect conditions without a care in the world.
    You can spend thousands and still miss a barn door or spend just enough and enjoy yourself. If you haven't got the talent to start with a million pound won't fix it. Whippet, Russell, a few bang sticks and a flat cap. http://www.smart-tech1st.co.uk

    I met Tony a couple of times - once at the midland game fair at Weston Park where we were having a chat about bullpupped Daystate Mk3s - he was doing one as a project and we had one of the A models shoehorned into a modified CR92 stock.

    A true gent.

    I still have a MK3 with a stock he made! He had a few tales to tell. He took me on one of his shoots one day and was aghast when I turned up in a nice red gilet! The air was blue! Fortunately I had a camo jacket in the car. Still didn't get a rabbit!

    RIP Tony

    I met Tony once or twice and he was one of the good guys with a keen, if vulgar sense of humour... I wonder how his daughter is doing now. She must be of University age, I hope she has done well for herself.

    Cheers
