Very bad news. He was very knowledgeable and he was always more than willing to share his knowledge with other people. He was one of a kind and he will certainly be missed. R.I.P Mr. Stephen Camp.

Exchanged a couple of emails with him, seemed like a great guy. I saw his J-frame and 1911 books in my closet yesterday and thought "I need to read that again sometime", didn't know he had passed.
RIP and thanks for the knowledge, sir.

Certainly a sad day in the firearm community. I know he will be sorely missed. Great writer, sharing his knowledge with many people. He had a lot of fans.
My prayers go out to his family and friends.

Just heard about this - how very very sad and my thoughts go out to all family and friends.
I 'knew' Stephen over many years in the forums and have one or two of his books. A man with a passion for the Browning and a wealth of knowledge - as well as a staunch activist in the 2A arena. What a loss - I shall remember him very fondly for all that he brought to the second amendment and firearms ownership.

His death is a great loss to the online gun community... I was a big fan of Hi Powers and Handguns.

I love only that which they defend.

RIP Steve Camp
Learning of Steve's death greatly saddens me. My Father was Capt. Neal at the Denton Co. Sheriffs Office many moons ago. I can honestly say that Steve was one of the greatest men that my Father ever knew, worked with, and partied with after hours. He was a soft spoken man who always gave you as much respect as you gave him. Always willing to lend a helping hand if you needed it and could always be counted on in a pinch.
Even though it's been 25 plus years since I've seen the man myself I can still personally vouch for how good a friend he was to our family.
He was a great man and will be GREATLY missed!

He will be truly missed. I really enjoyed reading his evaluations of defensive pistols and ammunition. A firearm enthusiast's friend if there if ever was one.
God bless our troops!

I'm a little late to reply as I was away from my computer when this happened.
Thoughts and prayers to his family. I've enjoyed reading his writings in magazines and on forums.
You will be missed

I didn't know...
I am just now hearing that this incredible man has passed. It is a shame that there aren't more like him in this world. Incredibly knowledgeable and friendly. I e-mailed him once or twice with a question regarding my Hi Power and his reply was very prompt and helpful. He seemed like a very nice man. Every time I read his articles on his website, I always thought that it was a shame that some big gun magazine hadn't hired him to write for them. Mostly because he seemed to be a better writer and more knowledgeable than so many of the so-called experts that write for the magazines. R.I.P. Mr. Camp, and thank you for sharing your knowledge and insights with us.
