To old friends. Looks like he thought you would do the same for him if reversed.
One of my much older HP shooting friends tried to give me all his reloading equipment, I already have a factory and don't have room anyway. We called a club he was active in for decades and got name of a jr shooter and donated it all to the young fellow. He is going to self exfiltrate to a assisted living facility next year. I need to visit him when the rona dies out.
