    Default Smitty's Blakeslee Sport Shop

    It's with sad news that I just found out this morning that John "Smitty" Smith passed away this past Sunday. He suffered a heart attack, he was only 53. God Bless the Smith Family my thoughts and prayers are with all of you during these difficult times.

    Smitty will be missed by alot of folks.

    I just met him a little while ago. He was sitting in the shop watching reruns on his TV. Really nice guy.

    Genuinely good guy. My thoughts are with his family.

    I found both triggers to be terrible to me so the triggers are on a scale to me.. The Glock was a crisper suck and the XD was a more mushy suck. They are in the same family, SR9 (heavy suck), Glock (crisp heavy suck), XD( lighter mushy suck), M&P(heavy mushy suck).

    RIP Smitty. Used to swing by his shop on the way to the range to grab some small items on occasion as he was only a few minutes from my house. Good guy, had alot of wisdom to pass on.
