Could this be true?

I was investigating a product made in Czechoslovakia and decided to call an old friend who was familiar with their Airgun-related products.

I was shocked and saddened to see an Obiturary saying Mr Boris M. Plesinger died November 4, 2016.

I'd known Boris for decades. It was he that intro'd me to the fine Brno and Tau airguns, as well as all of us to the fine JSB brand of pellets.

He was always cheerful and helpful, and I didn't talk to him often enough lately I guess. I bought some pellets from him seemingly just last spring, and some CZ hammer forged barrels the year before. One of the true gentlemen of Airgunning!

Perhaps there is some mixup in the name, but if not, I'll miss him.
