    He was someone I always wanted to meet or at least listen to give a lecture. Now that will not happen. We have lost a great member of our community in Jim Cirillo.

    He will be missed.

    Wow, this has been a rough year. We have lost some great ones in the shooting/self defense community. RIP Jim.

    I hate it when someone that touches the lives of others and makes life better is taken away. Theres a great range up in heaven, enjoy Jim. We'll all see you sooner or later. Also feel bad for the trucker. Even if its not his fault, he has to live with this for the rest of his life.
    Be safe

    Jim Cirillo passes ... merged

    Our industry at lost a cornerstone this week. If you don't read the NRA Bullet Points, here is a direct clip...

    "CAR ACCIDENT CLAIMS CIRILLO'S LIFE . . . Jim Cirillo, 76, a renowned firearms instructor, was killed in a tractor trailer collision in Brookfield, N.Y., last Thursday. A member of NYPD's famed stakeout unit, Cirillo is said to have participated in more than 250 armed encounters, some of which he describes in his book, "Guns, Bullets and Gunfights: Lessons and Tales from a Modern Day Gunfighter." Cirillo was a friend to NSSF, helping to instruct mainstream media professionals at NSSF's Media Education Seminars. "Jim was the real deal, and because he was unassuming and had so many great stories to tell the media was drawn to him and that connection helped make him one of the most popular instructors at our media seminars," said Bill Brassard, NSSF's managing director of communications, safety and education. See today's Shooting Wire for a tribute to Cirillo."

    Good journey and good rest, Jim.
