I am fairly new to the airgun world but today I was reading threads from 10 years ago where this man was already helping people on forums(tuning guns, writing guides, etc) and he was doing it all for free, there I saw that he was a good fella whose philosophy was to share knowledge


rest in peace.

Such sad news. Prayer sent to Bob and his family. I knew he was in bad health but still it's still painful news. Rest in peace Bob.

So sorry to hear this. 9 years ago or so, I got back into airguns and  Bob( and Gene) gave me a ton of advice  to make my Gamo Shadow 1000 a very shootable and accurate rifle. I was able to spend a lot of time on the old Gateway and continued to enjoy the postings Bob made and proved to myself that he really had a great handle on making a spring gun work. The tips, pointers and time he gave me was worth hundreds of dollars, but the best part was that he did it because he cared. He was a great guy and will be sorely missed. Prayers  and my deepest condolences to his family.
RIP Bob

Rest in peace Sir.

In search of a trigger I found a home full of brothers and sisters of such caliber that I can only hope to be worthy. He and Gene are together again to watch over their creation. I feel honored to be allowed to serve.
