Remembering Peter Martin (PCM)

Post by JimT »

One of the guys who was a regular on the old Sixgunner.Com website was Peter Martin. He was a husband, a father, and a sixgunner. He was also a member of the New York Fire Department and was in the World Trade Center on that awful day in 2001. Some of you old-timers who were part of the Sixgunner family remember him.

I received this sad message from his wife in December 2001 .. "Sat Dec 8, 2001

Greetings. I want you all to know that they have recovered Peter's body from the World Trade Center. I received official notification last night at 9:00 (NY time). We are all grateful for the opportunity for closure, but our hearts are heavy. I wanted all of you to know. Thank you again for all your prayers and support during the past three months. God bless you all. With warm regards, Alice Martin (Mrs. PCM) "

I kept in touch with his wife and kids until we moved to Mozambique but lost contact with so many. I have often wondered how she was doing. She was a strong lady and kept her family together.

Thanks for posting this Jim. I, too, hope she and her children are leading fulfilling, positive lives -- the best antidote to the extreme hate shown that day by the few in contrast to the great love and sacrifice by the many.

Peter Martin's Last Post on Sixgunner.Com (thanks to Drago)
Peter Martin's last post on 9.10.01:

PCM
I finally got it!!!!!!!!!!!..............
Mon Sep 10 19:34:16 2001

Been waiting FOREVER to find a .44 1950 S&W Target, well, I finally got one!

It was made in 1953, so it is a 5-screw pre-24 model with a 6 1/2" barrel. It has some honest blue-wear at the muzzle, cylinder, and front of the frame....but this gun is T-I-G-H-T!!! Also, it still has its original magna-diamond grips.

I am looking foward to putting many thousands of rounds through its barrel........................PETE

Pete and I were personal friends and we attended special matches and gun shows together……..I even straw purchased a couple of guns for him as he was from a communist state. 🤪. 😜
