No, Gene Keen did not have a brother named Ken. Gene was my father and passed in 2012.I always wanted a Seitz after meeting Tom when I was a kid in the mid/late 80's. I still might get one someday if the right opportunity presents itself, but I'm very satisfied with my Bowen's.
Jim R - #42 is Denzel's old gun...that's had some rounds down the pipe for sure! #22 has "Gene Keen" engraved on it; did he have a brother named Ken Keen (butcher maybe)? This is taking me back in the time machine..
