of two friends, different as night and day and how they barged into the
life of an old, very old, gunsmith named Skeeter Hawkins. The dynamics
of the trio are as follows: Joey is used to thinking he has all the answers
and jabbers constantly. His friend Steve is quiet and thoughtful and is
deliberate about the decisions he makes. Skeeter is somewhat of a hermit
who thinks that Steve and Joey are the answers to his prayer. He's been
praying for a boy to come to replace the son who was killed while he was
in the army, 30 years ago. The friends come to appreciate each other's
differences despite their different styles.
