Dang.
 I suspected, but this is the first confirmation.
May I make a suggestion? Tomorrow night (Friday, the 20th of Sept), at the stroke of midnight, I suggest (depending on where you live) we all go outside and snap a cap in Steve's memory? Of course, if you live in the country, feel free to torch off a hot load. If you live in a duplex or apartment, this could get a bit hairy so don't do anything to get yourself in trouble.
Snapping a cap won't make much more noise than a toy cap gun, but it's the thought that counts. Then report back on this thread if you could contribute to our tiny 21 gun salute.

Whatever TZ you are in. Not like we'll be able to hear each other...LOL!

But like the ball dropping on New Year's Eve, do it whenever your midnight arrives. I'm ready...

Let's try to get at least 21 of us, huh?

Oh, and I fully intend to raise a toast to our fallen comrade as well. Semper Fi, Steve.

sober, Mine will be H2o on the rocks.. but it's on.. oh shit! IT'S not on... my loading ram broke as I was loading my cylinders, Me thinks they're all hot.... and that won't do my sub division well....

How about a cylinder less dry fire?

It's the thought that counts. Go for it.

You only got one BP revolver? This is a perfect example of why you need more!

In a salute that was surprisingly loud with no other sound besides the crickets, I snapped a cap in Steve's memory followed by a toast of very good Irish whiskey.
Farewell. You will be missed.
