    Monday the man that sold me my first "real trap gun" will be laid to rest,, He was a man I was proud to call a friend , my boss for many years , Founder and first President of the Long Island FireRiders MotorCycle Club,,, 10 years ago i tried trap shooting,, told him about it,,, He asked if I needed a gun,,,I said yes,,, He brought to work a new never fired 10 year old 686 Beretta and sold it to me for what I found out was a good price,,,Jack served in "South East Asia" 1961,2,3,, many decorations,,3 purple hearts , but most proud of his CIB,,He was Special Forces ,, and did not talk about it much,,, but many of his buddies visited the shop and did tell stories,,,He was a good man who helped get me started in trap shooting,,, and I will miss him thanks for letting me tell you about MSG Jack Diamondstein
