The Summer issue of the GCA Journal is at the printer and will mail out shortly. In addition to the magazine itself, two extra sheets about the Convention will be inserted into the envelope.

He is a contributor to the GCA Journal and also hosted and narrated "America's Rifle – The M1 Garand", GCA's program on DVD. But there is a lot more about him you probably didn’t know.
