Every now and then I realize I havenít noticed someone post for a while and today Ike popped in my head, his profile shows he hasnít been on here since October 2017. What happened to Ike?

Never met him, but do recall him being insulted pretty bad on here. Or maybe it was somebody joking with him. Don’t know.

He has been really busy growing his business. Great guy to deal with for sure! All of my cans and most of my lowers were purchased from him.

He's on the book of faces pretty regular. And i'll second (or third or whatever...) him being a good guy to deal with.

Hard to believe that some on TBH can be arseholes...

Agreed. It's really noticeable when an old thread pops up.

I always assumed Ike was too busy running his business. Bumped into him once and talked briefly at a gun show. Seemed like a good dude.

I figured it was his getting married and having a child? Am I thinking of the wrong person?

Since when do you actually work?
I see Ike all the time at work. We are in the same control room but different shifts. I've ordered from him and took the CC class from him when he still did that.
Him and his wife have two boys now.

I think it was Ike who do the Cerakote on my 1911. Good guy. Works at a chemical plant in Texas City and lives north of Houston, like Conroe. If he's still doing that plus all the gun stuff, he is busy indeed!

Thanks for all the kind words y'all! (Mike gave me the heads up on FB.)

I've just been busy with work and the family. We just had our 2nd boy in December and between that and everything else, I've just been swamped and haven't had much time. I'm mainly just on FB now so if anybody wants to keep up here's a link https://www.facebook.com/BigTexOutdoorsIke).

I'll try and pop on here now and again, if for nothing else just to say hi. I'm still in touch with a lot of y'all and I've definitely made a lot of friends on here over the years. It's kinda cool knowing y'all haven't forgot about me!

Well look who showed up! Good to hear you are doing well Ike. Yea just notice every now and then I havenít seen someone on here and noticed you werenít sent to the cooler, just hadnít been on in a while.

I myself have two kids now and I can totally see where your time is focused. Glad to hear all is well, congrats on getting married and the two kiddos! Keep coming around, at least show us some pictures of some projects you got going on. I enjoyed seeing a lot of it.
