    Hadn't heard of it but sorry to hear of his passing.

    He left a legacy through his books, personal wisdom and Gunsite academy.

    A man who really "lived" his life. His contributions will be long remembered. Prayers and condolences to his family......

    Oh crap.

    I was tho I guess bracing for this - bless the man for all he gave so many and may he rest in peace and be remembered for the legend he became.
