Well several years ago a friend gave me his copies of the first periodical about Ruger collecting....called the Faulk Collectors Report IIRC....well I read all of them and was amazed to see such magnificent "ART WORK" by our own Chad Hiddleson......seems Chad and father Dave (better known as the Hiddleson Clan) were "fueding" with author and collector Jeff Munnel. Well Chad drew a lovely portrait of Mr Munnel.......I do believe Chad was in his early TEENS when this was done.....

Now fast forward about 26 years and a NEW Hiddleson artist appears on the scene.....at the RCA awards banquet Chads daughter, Autumn, drew a picture of me (RR), Chad, and herself..... I think you can see who she inherited her considerable abilities from.....I am having my "portrait" framed......THANKS Autumn, I love it.....see ya RR.
