On my short list of Truly Good Guys in the blogosphere, Old NFO of Nobody Asked Me ranks near the top. Not only is the man kind and generous to a fault, he's got really sweet guns to play with, even if he does have this strange predilection for wheelguns with cylinders that turn the wrong way.
Those two sniper rifles are worth more than my truck.
I also have it on good authority that when Kevin Bacon has friends over to his house, they all play Six Degrees of Old NFO. Seriously, the guy knows everybody. When I put this Kilted to Kick Cancer fundraising challenge together, he was one of the first people I called. Within 48 hours, he had $650 worth of schwag donated, including the gun we're giving away as top prize. When I bashed in my Dakota by hitting a deer at Blogorado a couple of years ago, he's the guy who got me and KatyBeth back to Louisiana in time for me to catch my flight to Alaska the next day. Whenever a blog reader asks me to promote some charitable cause here on my blog, he's one of the first in line to kick in a few bucks. The guy has a heart bigger than Texas.
Plus, he's a pretty fair shot. Last year, I watched him dustroll a prairie dog at 850 yards with one of those .308 sniper rifles. I'd have congratulated him more at the time, but I was too busy staring in slack-jawed amazement.
He's a retired Naval Flight Officer, patriot, shooter, secret squirrel government consultant, philanthropist, and friend to many. You can support his fundraising efforts for the Prostate Cancer Foundation here, and LiveStrong here. Drop by his blog and tell him you support what he's doing, and drop a few bucks in the hat for cancer research while you're there. If even 20 people who read this donate only $10 each, you woudn't even touch half of what he's donated to other charities on this blog alone, and we'd be $200 toward a very worthy cause. Every little bit helps.
