I always viewed Ron Flockhart as a gunner when he played for the Flyers, He would shoot from damn near anywhere, including beyond the blue line while on a rush. He was exciting to watch with his rushes, but at times i remember shaking my head wondering what the heck he was thinking with some of his long range bombs.
Although he was not a runner The Rifle was a shooter in the 1st degree.
