    prayers Budster aka: Buddy Sofos

    It is with great sadness that we report the passing of one of our members, Budster, or Buddy as we all know him here at M14BR forum. Buddy passed away on the 3rd of August.

    Buddy, was very active here on the forum and had his own sub-forum "Budster's Daily Firearms Tidbits". Buddy also was one of the admin on our M14BR facebook page along with Dennis Curtain and wrwindsor. Buddy was well respected in our community and will be sorely missed.

    Buddy, if you are looking down upon us, remember, you will not be forgotten!

    Prayers out for him and his family

    Rest Easy Brother, we got your fire watch from here.
    On my honor,
    I will never betray my badge,
    my integrity, my character,
    or the public trust.
    I will always have
    the courage to hold myself
    and others accountable for our actions.
    I will always uphold the constitution,
    my community, and the agency I serve.
