I liked him a lot, never did meet him in person, though he was invited to shoots often.

He was a good man, and one of the best machinists around, his FAL and AR fixes are legendary.

Gunplumber really liked him..

I used his rail modification on a Hesse reciever that had bolt carrier travel issues. Bloody thing ran like a chimp on fire afterwards.

I guess I missed the post of his passing.
He sure put a smile on my face when I read his post.
I think I will take out the Browning Buck Mark and do the
"ggiilliiee finger wiggle" in his honor tomorrow.
He will be missed.

Randy was a good guy. I only went to his place a couple times but I found him to be personable, helpful and genuinely fun to talk with. When I heard he had passed, I instantly felt like a schmuck for not making the effort to drive the mere 20 miles to visit with him more. He lived with some serious maladies daily and I wonder how any of US would be affected if we had the same issues to cope with.

Strange how a lying, libeling sack-of-shit fraud becomes a "good guy" by dying.

What a strange world.

So I cant say anything about the giggle, except he sure gave me some laughs about machinist work and gun smitting.

Well my grandma was a cantankerous old lady and she said "speak the truth and damn the consequences." Works for me.

Randy Nott was a fracking cockroach - a liar and a fraud. I've been asking myself if I am glad he's dead or merely ambivalent - so I went back and re-read some of his e-mails about my family and daughter in particular.

I'm ABSOLUTELY GLAD HE's DEAD (and hope it was a painful passing).

How's that for a reality check?

I was pretty sure this thread would soon come to this.

Randy was a character here.

Like so many persons with personal torments, he had two sides.

I banned him twice from this forum.

May I suggest that in his passing, there is no gain in reflecting on his shortcomings or errors.
I admired Mr. Nott for his mettle, although not for his methods.

Let's leave it at that.
I don't want to have to shut down threads because of things that are not now appropriate.

Ask JEN for permission if needed.

Well, I am truly saddened this evening to learn that Randy has passed. I'm sorry that I missed the news back in October. Thank you for posting the link to the original thread - it was nice to finally see a picture of the man.

RIP Randy.

WOW, unbelievable

I always thought gp was a bit abrasive but had NO idea he is the terrible human being he just proved to be.

Pathetic scum.

The only difference between me and my detractors is I'm not afraid to tell it like it is.


Any of you waxing poetic shed a tear when Ted Kennedy died? No - just the opposite, it was a bunch of joking and "good riddance".

If Diane Feinstein was being held hostage and the ransom that would save her life was $0.25, how many of you would be suddenly out of change?

Not all life has value. We all know this. Some pretend otherwise to project a false image their piety. I don't.

He lied about me here for years. He sent me disgusting e-mails about my daughter " ....hate ata see her servicing mexicans behind the bar for 3 bucks .... ".

Now he's dead, and I am glad. Some will think ill of me for saying so. So be it. I would not be upset if my tombstone read "Total asshole, but he always spoke the truth and nobody ever doubted where he stood."

And that will be all say on the subject.

The tragi-comic aspect of this is that, even in death, he caused you to make a total ass of yourself once again.

Wear it proudly, Arrogant Bastard.
