Rickey Broughton Loses His Battle with Cancer

Our Last Squirrel Hunt
September 2014
Today's post comes to you with sadness.  My Best Buddy Rickey Broughton lost his battle with Cancer on Saturday April 25, 2015, he was 52 years old.  

Many of you know him through our airgun community or seeing him posted here many times through out the years.  I was introduced to Rickey at a gun show some 30 years ago and we became instant friends. Over the years he became more like the brother I never had.

He was an avid hunter, shooter and knife collector.  We were of course like minded with our airgun passion. Many a weekend was spent out in the woods, attending an FT Event, plinking or simply talking airguns.
