Notably, and rightfully so, his Father who flew the well known B-17 Bomber lovingly referred to as A Bit O’ Lace which flew 83 missions while she was attached to the 709th Bomb Squadron, 447th Bomb Group (Heavy) out of RAF Rattlesden England during World War II.

    Brian bought his first .22 from E.J. Griffiths in the mid-ninties and quit that "awful game called Golf " around the year 2000 when he started shooting Sporting Clays. He hasn't looked back, nor missed the irons since; though he is quick to note he "stinks at both of them".
