Dick Cupka has been shooting for over 50 years. Beginning with shooting tin cans off a fence post on the family farm with his BB gun at the age of five, Dick has been a life long shooting enthusiast. Pellet guns and .22's soon followed and the addition of a Ruger Single Six in 1968 cemented his passion for all things ballistic! As with many kids growing up in the 60's, he was exposed to historical firearms through the popular westerns and military shows on broadcast television. From Winchester 94's to M1 Garand's and Carbines the allure of blued steel and walnut has continued to grow.
