  2. If it’s one thing I can say about him is the he always had that huge smile on his face. He is such a great time no matter the situation and his love for firearms is beyond amazing. There are so many great qualities but the love for his family is above all. He wouldn’t miss a beat for them and is truly awed. Until we meet again brotha, rock on my dude!!

  3. Zach you will be dearly missed. It was so amazing working with you. My thoughts and prayers are with your family and I will see you again, when Jesus calls for me.
    Until then my friend 🙏🏻


  4. Zack was always a knowledgeable person regarding any WW1-Cold War weaponry.
    He was also a good salesman at walmart or Damerons. You couldn’t say no to Zack.
    I am going to miss his history lessons about every AK. Yes even the Albanian or Cuban model. 😆 🤣 😂 . God Bless brother.

  5. I am so sorry to hear of the sudden passing of Zach. My heart goes out to Jeff, his wife, and all of Zach’s family. May fond memories help heal the pain of your loss.
