    Unhappy Sagebrush7 has died...

    My Father James Sage of Sage's Outdoors, known as Sagebrush7 on this forum died last week. Dad had been through a few cardio/vascular surgeries this year that where successful. So we were optimistic he could regain some normal life again. His heart was doing better than okay. He had been stuck in a wheelchair for the last couple months due to leg issues, so he was just moved into a rehab center. But, he only got one physical therapy session in. He gave out early in the morning of October 16th.

    He was very active till last summer, just started getting tired easily at first. Then it was hospital after hospital, we had to go to lager cities for the surgeries. Its scary to be seriously sick right now with the C19 lock downs, total nightmare trying to keep Dad positive while isolated in the hospitals and the rehab nursing home. We did home care for most of it though, so we did get some time with him near the end. Got him out of the house some, pushed him around outside at the local accessible mountain overlook. He was working on the gas check presses about three months ago trying to share his knowledge. He was a good husband and Father.

    1946-2020


    I've gotten behind on shipping orders, but Sage's Outdoors is going on. I'm catching up now best I can. Trying to get my mind back on gas checks.

    I'm sorry to hear of your loss. Your father found a group of fellow shooters in dire need of affordable gas checks ands then met their needs with an outstanding product and great customer service.

    My condolences Shamus. During the last great shortage of gas checks I bought 1K of your aluminum checks (for 7mm I believe) and was well pleased with price and service.

    Knowing you are going forward with Sages Outdoors, I will make it a point to buy from you when the occasion affords itself.

    In the meantime, thoughts and prayers to you and your family!
