Default We Lost One Of The Best!!!

Thanks to a PM from Switchbarrel I found out my longtime friend and shooting mentor affectionately nicknamed "Dangerous Bob Dorton" had passed away.
He was a board member at Sacramento Valley for years and it was with tireless effort that he helped maintain and keep the various ranges in good order.
Bob was easy to spot in his bib overalls always working on a range project.
He was left-handed but shot left bolts right bolts and any ejection option available he just liked guns.
A visit to Bob's place would have him opening many safes and showing you over 50 different benchrest rifles before you left. Bob shot everything from air rifles to 22's to pistols and if course 100,200,300,600 and 1000 yard benchrest rifles. He couldn't find a Allen wrench one time so we drove down to a local supply house where Bib purchased a box of the correct size wrenches. He opened the box and sprinkled the wrenches all around his shop so he could always find one.
Bob gave his bank teller a 67 Corvette for her birthday one year because she liked cars.
Bob never did the internet but if he did he would be one of the best posters to listen to. He shot 4-5 days a week and easily owned over a hundred guns in just about every cartridge.
A truly nice guy who will be missed by all that knew him.
We are diminished.
