Wow, this is sad news. I enjoyed his infectious exuberance for air gunning displayed over the years. A sad loss for the community for sure. My condolences to his wife and family.

"Infectious exuberance" for sure.  I was just thinking about what all he taught us about the Hatsan magnums.  He taught is the limits of the guns, with no b.s. 

He was one of a kind.

The Fang may be gone but his memory will live on in every gun build and helping hand he offered to others with his ever giving free knowledge.

What?  No way.  OC is gone?  Dang, he was young!  :(  I need to check this gate more often.
I was thinking of him and wanted to call him about working on an R1 that I think my neighbor is finally going to sell to me.

RIP Fang.
