I got an unsigned e-mail a few minutes ago. Something daisy/crossman. No name. No signature. I have no idea who from. I must be out all day. In light of the fact that you recently posted about e-mailing you ... I went to your title webpage just to verify your e-mail address and crossreference with what came in. If your e-mail link is there ... I could not see it. Did a quick Google ... found no e-mail listing for you there.
Point is, if you mailed me, I could not verify it. The mail simply said send list of grievences ... anybody could have sent that to stir the pot. I replied that, as I've said here, I have no canned list of grievences. Am sending none out.
I'm well known for promptly answering my mail. If I can verify who things are from, I always answer. I must be out today.

maybe you should not use that little "hide the sender" service - I have answered them ALL

Send me a stupid real e-mail address and I'll send you a copy of what I've sent your silly second party e-mail services.
And, AGAIN ... don't you read this stuff? I have no stupid list and have not been sending one out as you suggest. Therefore, if you would have dealt with the several attempts I've made - FACE TO FACE with you, and thru e-mail, it would perhaps have been useful to your awareness that you've been lied to. I never had your gun Dennis ... I never took your gun apart Dennis. I never had it in my shop Dennis. I didn't break it Dennis.
All repeated, for the multiple time, 12 hours ago to your little masked e-mail. Also answered twice yesterday. And ... you post here to leave the impression that I'm snubbing you.,
Nor does it make it more interesting here. Look Gary, you guys are both talented contributers to a hobby i really love. Its been made clear you guys don't get along ... so what? Theres room in this world for everyone, friend, foe, or indifferent ... they don't NEED to bond.
I know some of whats happening, here, heck i been in them shoes a time or two myself, and hope i've (finally) learned by it.
I appreciate and admire your talents, but you are are bringing yourself down in airing this matter between Dennis and you, and so is he. Fact is we only see little bits and pieces of the big picture, and it seems petty. Mabe it IS petty, i dunno, but the parts we are seein are just needessly exposing feet of clay. We don't really NEED to know who is right or wrong, since we don't even truly know what its about, nor should we.
When Van Gogh cut off his ear and presented it to a prostitute, for some, it took away appreciation of his work, lending it ALL an air of infamy.
I am lost myself. I don't mind the posts on the OT page but I still would like to understand what it is all about if I am subjected to it. What's the beef? I have no clue. Maybe a chronological event itemized might help, for example:
1. March 1996 Dennis/or Gary told one of my customers my guns are not safe.
2. bla bla bla....
Not that 's going to solve anything mind you but it would get the rest of us out of the quackmire.
And, those pics of him were taken off of this forum where they were openly posted, so - this isn't just some misunderstanding I've made up or something.
Dennis doesn't even quit today - when everyone is dealing with Kathrina's aftermath. He's e-mailed me again thru this silly second party service that he directed me to use here the other night. He copies my mail back to me and signs it. Anyway, today he's saying that his rebuttal is hanging over me like the sword of Damocles. He asked how soon I wanted it to fall? His words - not mine. He took time out of cleaning up in Missouri to do that today?
I have all the copies and headers of the e-mails - all the while he tried to make it look as if I'd refused to respond to his e-mail diplomacy.
I came here simply to see what in the heck he was talking about today. I saw this question posted. I can provide but never make people look at the evidence. It's easier to believe it's just some childish sand box thing I won't let go of. It is childish and silly and evidently eternal ... but it's not me that won't let go. It's there - in black and white. He's been a monkey on my back for nine years. It's alittle different when it's you.
Also, if anyone could not care less ... that's fine. Steve asked. This is off-topic on an old thread. He won't consider that he's been lied too - all I ever hear is that I'm deeply twisted with lies. I have no idea how to get him to drop it.
And, I don't want to hear "Well, he started it" from you or anyone else. If everyone here were to put as much energy into coming up with airgun ideas as they do cutting each other down and nit picking, people here would revolutionize the air rifle as we know it.
I'm not taking sides, I don't care who did or said what.
Remember, were not here for a long time, just a good time. Enjoy Life!
This is the first time in five years that I've seen them chat with each other. We're making progress here, boys.
I have no interest in the proceedings except that I enjoy both men and believe that they are both technically superior to me. I've spent hours talking to Dennis and learning from him; and probably just as much time perusing the Barnes website. The feud must go back more than the 5 years of my association with adult airgunning.
Don't buy it. Face to face has not worked (Roanoke Show - with witnesses). E-mail has not worked - (been there tried that - and have been again yesterday and today). Forums have not worked (you agree?). Friends have not worked. (Ask some buddys of mine here) And still, I'm endlessly advised to work it out for the good of everyone ... just an endless reoccuring headache.
I don't know you from Adam. Don't think we've met. Certainly haven't done business. Any possibility you don't know all there is to know here?
Bottom line is ... we're Off-Topic here. If you don't want to read ... don't come seek it out.
As I say - don't know you. If you are a moderator or the forum ... e-mail me.
The impression left on this thread is that somehow I've refused to take this off forum to e-mail. Ooooh ... sounds bad doesn't it? But it's a blatant lie. I won't let it stand and allow myself to be painted as some barbarian while the other party is left looking like such the diplomat.
