I actually "met" Phil several years ago on the Guns International website. He always seemed to have a large supply of left handed rifles
and I bought several from him. I've also spoke with him on the phone several times about guns, rifles, ammo, loads, hunting trips, etc. He was always really nice and fair and i had made the offer to him to stop by if he ever got out to Idaho. I didn't really know him like Joel did and Joel, I am truly sorry for your loss. It is extremely hard to lose a friend and hunting partner.
Take care and God bless.
