I just wanted to say a few words about Will Hayden after the conversation we had while texting each other yesterday.
This has "nothing" to do with Sons Of Guns or Red Jacket Firearms.
It also has nothing to do with Will being guilty or innocent of the crime he has been accused of. That's not what this is about.
This is about the character of a man I had some dealings with a few years ago.
A while back I was given a very slim chance of living this long. I spent most of my time looking out the window and flipping though the T.V. channels.
One day I seen this new show about and thought I'd watch it. I seen a rifle they made and thought, man that's cool!
I still had a couple guns and thought I'd sell them and get me one of these rifles.
Long story short, Will and I did a trade. A week or so later I received a call from Will. He asked me if I'd be interested in working on a project. I told him I really didn't know much about what he wanted and maybe azhonkey would be a better choice, but he seemed to be more interested in my doing it.
I thought if I could do it and he decided to produce it, maybe it could help my wife after I was gone.
Will sent me funds (to a total stranger) to pay for all the R and D.
The project didn't pan out, but Will took the time for me whenever I needed anything, but mostly he listened when I just needed someone talk to and has still put up with me to this day.
People with this kind of character are almost nonexistent in this day and age, especially to a stranger.
That's why I'm proud to say know him.
