It's a sad thing. Blaine was one of the real good guys, actually one of the best people I ever knew. He did the concrete in my shop about 20yrs ago and we became good friends. A shooter who was always experimenting with stuff and really knew guns. I always thought Blaine could've been Jeremiah Johnson or Daniel Boone incarnate. He had the same spirit.....he explored wilderness. That youtube clip of "taliban being shot by snipers" but was actually pirated from a DAA video?......it was Blaine who found the place and told myself and Dave about it. Concrete work in Utah slows way down every winter. Blaine's greatest happiness was being out in some desolate remote part of Nevada nowhere during winter, with snow everywhere, living in a tent and shooting coyotes for a week. He'd tell me I had to try this, come on out, you'll love it.......I'd tell him he was nuts. A great guy, sorry he's gone.

I spent some time one week hunting with Blaine. We talked small calibers,guns and coyotes. It was a great week. He will be missed.

Yeah the man was a wealth of knowledge about small calibers and coyotes thats for damn sure. He was the biggest influence on me getting into the 17 calibers. He will be greatly missed. Rest in Peace Blaine

Very sorry to learn of his passing and condolences to his family. Did his plate concept ever catch on?

Blaine and I crossed paths a few times.
I still have some photo's he sent me with tons of extra prime coyote hides.
First chance I get, I am going to get them out and sip a couple of ounces of Glenlivet. I hope there are lots of coyotes and accurate rifles where his is now.

He was intelligent enough to leave some of that knowledge in the form of videos, I wish he had done more.
