Marlan Ingram ?
« on: July 14, 2022, 01:23:05 PM »
Although I only joined NCOWS last year, I bought a slew of back-issues of the Shootist and am very slowly working my way through them, mostly starting with the older issues.  I've enjoyed a number of authenticity articles by Marlan Ingram (alias O.T. Buchannan).  I notice that he was last active on CasCity ten years ago, and is not on the NCOWS member list.  Did he become inactive?  I hope he is still alive and well.

I may have more queries in the future regarding other names that seem to be folks that were very involved back then with the Shootist.

I used to look forward to his articles as well. I cut them out and started a reference file that I still go back to. Hope he is doing OK.

He is a life member, but has not been active recently.  He was/is in Law enforcement.

Marlin is alive and well, I am friends with him on Facebook. He does not post much and is busy as a firearms instructor.

Thanks for the replies.  People's interests and activities can change for a lot of reasons.  I'm glad he is still with us.  His contributions were significant in those early issues.  Yuma, if you would, please pass on to Marlan that his work is still being seen and appreciated for the first time.  Thanks.

Yep he's around and as far as I know doing well. He works and does firearms training at a local gun range in my hometown. I haven't seen him when I was at the range and have meant to reach out to him. If I see him I'll let him know everyone is thinking of him. I'm sure he'll really appreciate it.

It's funny because I had read and enjoyed some of his writing and a few years ago saw he was here local to me so I reached out to him to see if he was the same Marlan Ingram. Such a small world. Great guy.

Abilene, and all: Marlin wrote several articles on using original S&W revolvers and cartridge conversion in CAS that were published in The Backwoodsman magazine about 20 or so years ago.  I truly enjoyed those articles and still have them!  Please let him know from me as well, that he is missed!  Does he still have all of his old, original S&W's?

Regards,
Jake
