    Missing Va OCer reports

    Some of our Virgina friends have simply disappeared, poof gone. Would really appreciate it if anyone can shed some light on where these good people are.

    MSC 45ACP - Mike, retired Coast Guard, moved to Yorktown from Newport News, had health issues, two lovely daughters in college. Last posted July 2012.

    curtiswr / Curtis - was very active young man, lived and worked in apt complex in the West End of Richmond last I heard, had health issues. Last posted March 2013.

    Please use this thread as a bulletin board for your own lost and missing friends.

    Note that any seriously off topic replies will be deleted. Want to keep the thread clean and will take steps to insure that it does.

    Conveniently short memory, especially since you were following him closely back then.

    He demanded that he be banned - his wish was granted.

    Note that thread title clearly indicated this was about Virginians with whom we have lost contact.

    Yep Infidel was quite active. Name was Richard/Dick if I remember right. Last posted 9/6/14, one day before the VCDL picnic in NN.

    Perhaps some grow out of it, or vacate for several months to focus on more important things, like sanity.

    Circumstances do change for people, not always for the better.

    Anyone remember sitedzn - lost his job, then was working at Home Depot while he prepared to get on with Chesterfield PD. Last posted 3/2/10.

    I've been under the weather a bit lately…,

    have wondered about thedevilrobyjohn and how he and his family are doing. He got to be a fairly regular poster on here, enjoyed seeing him and his family at some of the breakfasts and dinners. Had some informative post on OC in the Richmond areas too.

    Thedevilrobyjohn said someone told him that Nick's Roman Terrace would cause someone with a crying child to leave w/o further ado. Then he apparently expanded that to if children were not welcome at our events then he was gone - neither was true. Think he lost his mother about the same time. His last intended post was 10/31/14 wherein he said he would work to get banned since he could not delete his account.

    Then he posted about gun shows 9/14/15 - guess he forgot.......silent since then.

    I miss Longwatch and Tomahawk (and I don't know how to make them show up as links, but I wish I did).

    I emailed Tomahawk a few months ago, and he replied that due to life changes he wasn't able to devote himself to activism at present, but gave me no details. He is (or was at the time) well.

    I used to see Longwatch now and then at Guns and Ammo Warehouse where he worked even after he stopped being an active poster. Then he disappeared from there too. The shop closed and a new gun shop has openned in the same location.

    After a hiatus of 2 1/2 years, he posted a single reply on 7-21-2015 then slipped back into the woods.

    Thank you very much for the concern. I've been dealing with health & family issues for a while. A couple trips to the ER and a few days in the hospital over the last year, but I'm doing ok now.

    I really appreciate y'all being here and worrying about me. Oldest and 3rd children have turned into accomplished marksmen, especially the younger of the two. I got her an old Anschutz/Savage Model 10 a few years ago and she can print a group the size of my thumbnail at the 25 yard line. Her group with a 1911 grows a little bigger: About a fist-sized group using some old TZZ (Israeli HARDBALL ammo made for their military) on a TransTar II (human sized silhouette). Oldest still likes her Combat Tupperware (Glock) 21, but got something a bit smaller for carrying (CC). I think its a S&W Shield of some sort. Traitor went to 9mm, too!

    My back has gotten a little worse, so I haven't been carrying either .45 for a while. Usually have a Ruger LCR-357 nowadays with a few speed-loaders for travelling Downtown. It is DEFINITELY not a range gun. It stops being fun after the first 5 full-load .357 defense rounds. It sure spits a lot of fire, too. I've heard they make special rounds for short-barreled pistols that have less recoil and more complete burning powder.

    I'll try to check in here more often in the future and avoid being an MIA Poster-Child! Thanks once again for "missing" me.

    Fondest Regards;

    Mike
