    Bill, I was not privy to your conversation with Red. I can only say that Red had no pond in front of his house or one visible from the rear. I have never witnessed Red having a drink or using foul language.
    Not disputing anything, I just saw my side of Red.

    Red had a very large play shop behind and to the right of his house. His big barn was directly behind his home and to the left of his shop. The only way to shoot turtles was to walk around and behind his barn.
    Red owned a large engine rebuilding shop in Shawnee, Oklahoma. His primary work was on oilfield stationary engines. I do have a small one cyl. inboard engine that Red gave me. It is watercooled and is about the size of a lawn mower engine.

    I remember Red winning at the Cactus shooting his wood stocked Benchmaster in .23-40 when everyone else was shooting PPCís. My favorite Red story was him telling about a young shooter shooting next to him and heíd shoot every time Red did. He told Red ďI donít understand, I shot when you did and my group is big and yours is smallĒ. Redís response was ďSon, you werenít holding where I was!Ē I have Redís .23-40 reamers. Unfortunately, I donít know which one he was using last. When I started shooting benchrest at Luther, we loaded under oak trees on picnic tables. Iíd watch Red load his .23-40 cases by knocking out the primer, re prime and add powder and the put the bullet in place with his finger tips. No seating pressure at all. Just a slip fit sitting on the step inside the neck. If I did that, thereís no telling where the bullet would wind up before I got it in the rifle. Iíd probably throw it over my shoulder and half the powder. I also have his BR based reamers, unfortunately they will not work with Lapua brass as they are sized for Remington brass. Iím not sure, but I think Red had moved from one place to another in Seminole. Iím sure that the shop that Butch and I saw after Red passed away was the same one which would be the later house and shop. Bonnie passed away in February 2019. Rex would know. I never was at Redís house when he was still alive.

    Mike in the olden days I traveled with John Bunch to Luther a couple times. We stopped on the way at4 Red's house both times. Red was living in the house then that Bonnie was in after Red passed away. Bonnie did move into town a year or so after Red passed, but my memory for dates ain't good.
