    Stuff like this is why I started the thread about non gun or BG self defense stuff. This is much more likely to happen to you or your family than a armed encounter.

    Sad, Sad News

    Yes, Mr. Cirillo was the real deal. He'll be missed.

    He rates an Inspector's Funeral, no doubt.

    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    IIRC this was a real old time guy who'd truly BTDT. A veteran NYPD cop and the survivor of countess gunfights. He was a firearms trainer for the NYPD and New York State, I think. What a career. RIP

    James Cirillo Dies in Vehicle Accident
    Gun expert dies in Brookfield accident

    July 13, 2007
    By Jennifer Fusco

    BROOKFIELD — A well-known gun expert and author was killed and another man injured in a tractor-trailer-car collision Thursday night, according to the Madison County Sheriff’s Office.

    James Cirillo, 76, of West Edmeston, was driving west on Welsh Road around 7 p.m. when his vehicle entered Route 8 into the path of an 18-wheel tractor-trailer driven by Christopher Madison, 36, of Richardson Avenue in Utica, deputies said.

    The tractor-trailer struck Cirillo’s vehicle on the driver’s side, deputies said.

    Cirillo died at the scene. Madison was treated for back injuries at St. Elizabeth Medical Center in Utica, deputies said.

    Cirillo taught numerous firearm classes and wrote several books, including “Guns, Bullets, and Gunfights: Lessons and Tales From a Modern-Day Gunfighter.” He also had several videos.

    Violet Jimenez, Cirillo’s partner of nine years who lived with him in West Edmeston, said he was a renowned firearms instructor and a retired New York City police officer.

    “If you check the Internet, you’ll find everything about him,” she said. “He was a very humorous man and loved his hunting and fishing. He was just a very vibrant person.”

    According to Amazon.com, Cirillo spent many years with the New York City Police Stakeout Unit and participated in more than 250 armed encounters. He also spent years as a firearms instructor at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center.

    Since retiring from law enforcement, Cirillo has conducted periodic firearms training courses, the site states.

    Witnesses to the accident told deputies that Cirillo’s car appeared to enter Route 8 to possibly make a U-turn. He apparently did not realize the tractor-trailer was rounding a curve near the intersection, deputies said.

    Guide rails prevented both vehicles from going over a steep embankment, deputies said.

    Deputies, along with the Sheriff’s Office accident reconstruction team and evidence specialists, are continuing their investigation today.

    No charges have been filed against Madison, deputies said

    I saw this earlier today , and imho its a huge loss ... up there with Cooper , and Skeeter Skeltin .
    Make sure you get full value out of today , Do something worthwhile, because what you do today will cost you one day off the rest of your life .

    Mr Cirillo earned his rest, the line has gotten thinner. While the line has gotten thinner because of him strengthening the line, it has not gotten weaker.
