Boge, I hope all is well with you.  I am attaching a writeup and pics of my friend Wayne Dennis' display at the recent (July 17-18, 2021) Ruger Owners & Collectors Society (ROCS) displays at the Ohio Gun Collectors Association (OGCA) Show.  "Its a Blast" was the display name, and it is in honor of Jeff.   Wayne had one of the Ruger GP100 .44 Special Tribute revolvers, JQ-101, displayed.  Thought you would enjoy seeing it.

 My display is to honor the late Jeff Quinn (1959-2020) who with his brother Boge started the internet firearms review site “Gunblast”.

The gun is a limited-edition Ruger GP-100 in .44 Special with serial numbers JQ-001 to JQ-500. The gun has a 4.2” barrel and a 5-shot unfluted cylinder with serial number, JQ-101. The gun has special laser engraved grips with a likeness of Jeff on the right panel along with his signature.

The display also has two framed items. One is the commemorative card for the gun and another with art print of Jeff done by Loren Michki.  Included in my display is a special Simply Rugged Holsters commemorative Eldorado holster, also with Jeff’s image on the front panel.  Both the art print and holster are numbered with the same serial number as the gun, JQ-101.  

Also included in and enhancing the display are many extra items that belonged to Jeff.
