Yes, Al Grundman, a longtime friend of mine and almost everyone else in Western U.S. trapshooting, passed away quite a few years ago (15 or so). He and his family had the best Sporting Goods store in Humboldt County, in the little town of Rio Dell, south of Eureka and Fortuna, California. Al was a stockmaker, including pretty decent checkering as well, taking up engraving in later years and became pretty darn good at that. He was a longtime PITA shooter as well as a regular Arizona ATA Winter Chain shooter along with his buddies Herb Bell, Pete Gonzalez, and many other prominent western states shooters.
The family store, Grundman's Sporting Goods, still exists operated by son's Paul and others. Al also originated a leather goods line of products including shell box holders, real nice shooting bags (I still have one of those) and anything else in leather he could sell. Now that I think of it, I believe he made and repaired saddles and other tack products as well.
Al was a craftsman, artist, and above all, a real gentleman. I hope he is looking down at us at this time. Anyone that add anything or corrections to this information is welcome to do so.
