Robert Werner - aka CharlieDaTuna - Co-founder of our forum
« on: April 12, 2016, 07:22:19 PM »
I just received a phone call that sent my heart to my feet. My friend and our co-founder Bob Werner passed away this past Sunday evening. As many of you knew, Bob has been in severe pain for several years due to blood clots in his legs. He has undergone several very painful surgeries. This last bout was too much for his heart.
Bob was a true legend in the airgun world and will always be a hero of our sport. His contributions to our sport/hobby will live on. Think of him and say a prayer for him and Cheryl.

Man, that makes two of the best men I've ever know gone... My prayers sent. On the positive side we are all experiencing and enjoying things from both Gene and Bob. If it weren't for them I'd likely never experienced air guns or the great fellowship in this big family we all know as the GTA. Bob was a huge help to me and I'm sure many others. Thanks for all you've done for our community Bob.

May he rest in peace.  My condolences to his family.  He is greatly missed by many of us.

I'm a peaceful man and prefer the pursuit of peaceful sports.  Those involving teams and balls of any sort tend to be deleterious to one's body and promote violence by both spectators and participants.   The shooting sports, however, tend to promote self control and are peaceably participated in by those who know that their greatest challenge is their need to continually hone their own abilities.
