  1. My deepest sympathies go to “Doc” Meyers family. I knew Doc back in the mid 1970’s when I was in high school and a member of the Pueblo Municipal Shooters club at City Park. He was always there to make sure we were in a safe environment but allowing us enough leeway to have fun even though most of us were typical high schoolers. He always had great patience with all of us and I know everyone really respected him for that (and I know that some really tested his patience to the limit). And even though I have move away, and a lot of years have passed, I still think about those days with fondness as it was a great time in my life and it was a pleasure to have know such a great person as Doc. He will be sadly missed.
