I cut my teeth on the wisdom of Mr. O'Connor...It is said that there are many painters, but few artists...Jack O'Connor was the shooter's Rembrandt.

I looked at and handled a .35 Newton. That gun was poorly designed. The bolt handle will fit perfectly into my seven year old hands. I can wax on... If you run across one. Look at the bolt and the extractor.

Trust Jack O'Connor to be ahead of his time. The .280 Ross (the early WW! Canadian battle rifle) caught his eye long ago. The rifle had its shortcomings but there was no doubt in his mind the cartridge was a winner.

I have several of Jack O'Connors's books and have read and reread various chapters over the years. Jack O'Connor was a good writer who set the benchmark high for those who followed. With hunting under assault from a variety of quarters we need people of a like stature to stand up. Take note, Jack managed to tell a tale of the hunt with warmth and humor while still addressing the technical stuff that is a modern fascination. He was a skilled word smith that could talk gun lingo with the best of them. People identified with Mr. O'Connor because he was a cosmopolitan man who was comfortable around the fire in the deserts of Arizona, the wilds of BC, the plains of Africa or the jungles of the Far East. I wish someone today could fill his shoes as the sport needs such a representative as never before.
