With great regret and sadness I share the announcment of the sudden and untimely passing of my friend, Dino Longueira.
Dino was the brilliant inventor, innovator, and proprietor of Majestic Arms, New York City’s lone full time, full-service Gunsmith. He invented, many products, among them the Speed Strip Kit for the Ruger .22 Auto Pistols. I met Dino and his wonderful wife Joanne at SHOT Show many years ago through my friends at AGI. Jack Landis introduced us and it became an annual event to gather for dinner and laughs. Dino possessed a sharp witt, was always friendly and fun to be around. Gunsmiths like to gather and share stories because we are a unique and relatively small fraternity, Dino will be missed from but never forgotten at our annual gatherings!
