It's with a heavy heart I write this, this morning. I found out last night that
Hunting / shooting advocate, supporter and the founder of Hnatiuks has passed away.
Sadly, Jim Hnatiuk passed on August 19th, 2018.
Jim always had a few minutes of his time to talk to you, no matter how busy he was. Helluva nice guy, always a strong supporter of the shooting industry, no matter if you hunted or not.
Over the years, he eagerly donated thousands of prizes to different clubs and organizations who are / were promoting the sport !
I remember going into the one little room in the old house that first became his "gun shop". way back when.
Back then, compared to now, it certainly was...small digs...lol, but still, a great place to go and handle and look at a few firearms. I walked outta there with a chessire cat smile 5 or 6 times with new firearms over the years. So did some of my friends. That was their "first gun shop" they ever visited !
My deepest condolences to Douglas, Carleen, their families, and the rest of the staff up there.
Jim will be sadly missed by a great many people.
