Josh - I met R. Lee Emery in an elevator in a Seattle Marriott overlooking Lake Washington.
I was there scoping out a Honeymoon Room for a very close associate who was getting married in about 2 weeks.
R Lee was in town shooting La Fontaine, which was a movie about a local boy from Oregon who made good. Good story.
This was BEFORE he started repping Glock and before I started my gunsmith career.
We had a good conversation for 8 floors. "How are you liking Seattle" "Fine" "I enjoyed your performance in Full metal Jacket" "Thank you, obviously you are a fan" "Yes sir, I enjoyed the movie, but not the director" "*laughing* Well, that's your priviledge"
Bottom line, I am bigger than R. Lee and I am a WHOLE lot more serious about my choice than he is about his. That said, I respect the man, but he isn't what I would consider an "imposing figure".
Now, if Robocop10mm or stalkingbear suddenly stepped up and told me I should consider a Glock, well, I would HAVE
to consider it out of respect for two guys who were bigger than me.
