    The first man to encourage me in muzzleloading 44 years ago, Fuller G. "Windy" McClung passed away on December 16th 2016. He was a veteran of WWII, a machine gunner in the 325th Glider Infantry Regt. of the 82nd AB Div. and a disabled coal miner. He was a premier gun builder, inventor and good friend.

    Condolences on the loss of your friend. Sounds like he was quite the Man, someone well worth knowing.

    Sorry to hear of your loss Ranger, and condolences to his family. Those glider troops were brave men, can't imagine a more difficult operation than a glider night assault, God bless Windy and all his comrades.

    Seems like I heard his name in certain circles at the Kate Carpenter club at Smoot. All the old time Muzzleloading gunsmiths will be missed for sure.

    Been doing some reading on the gliders used in WWII. I can only imagine what they went through.
