Summer is here and I am reading a bit between planting and tilling gardens.
I was reading Alaskan Hunter by Roy F. Chandler who lived in Fairbanks in the late 1960's and early 1970's. It is an awesome book that dovetails nicely with the recent book about Slim Moore by Jim Rearden which was also an excellent book.
Chandler and his son write books and manufacture sniper rifles for government contracts mentions Bill Fuller who was Johnson's gunsmith and then branched off on his own.
I am wondering if Murphy or Brown Bear can regal us with a better profile of this story that resulted in the 450 Alaskan in model 71 winchester.
