Folks, let me tell you a thing or three about my old friend "Puff".

We both used to belong to the Green River Mountain Men, and we both used to attend the "Monroe Gun Show" a huge event held annually in Monroe, Washington.
Our friend Puff and I were always busy passing out flyers, promoting the TMA......along with Beaverman and several other oldtimers from the TMA......going back as far as 2005.

Anyway, I think you folks are going to enjoy Puffer's company, as he is one of the most knowledgeable folks I know in the field of the Fur Trade era.
He is also a good shot with his flinters, and he knows his guns. At least he was a good shot until his eyesight stared going south on him.
Still yet, I understand he was recently recertified for his NRA Range Officer and Instructor Certification.

He was, at one time, a top poster in the TMA.
Promoting a dialogue between other knowledgeable folks sure made for some great discussions on the Fur Trade Era.
There is one subject in particular that I think everyone will enjoy and that is the part played by Hawaiian natives during the Fur Trade Era....yep, they were there!

Anyway, welcome back home Puff, and we all wish you the best from here on out.

Uncle Russ...
