    Wow... I'm floored. Extremely sad news. Thoughts go out to his family and friends. I'm sure he's up there shooting the mighty 10mm in the big gun range in the sky.

    RIP, bro.

    I just realized Mike and I share the same birthday (Oct 10)... Of course he was a little older. I was born in 1969.

    Wow! Not what I expected to read when stopping by the 10 Ring this morning. Definitely saddened by the news, as I also am one of those who really appreciated the extra time Mike always took to make sure I was getting what I needed and would work best for my applications. Rest in peace, Mike. You will be sorely missed.

    Very sad news. Condolences to family and friends. Mike, rest in peace knowing that you were the best at what you did.

    edit: Dang, Mike was only 1.5 hours North of me. I wish we could have met.

    I purchased a box from Mike. I was planning to purchase more ammo, but alas it won't be happening. Although I knew him briefly, he was always very professional and very willing to provide advice on the best ammo for my pistol.

    Rest in Peace.

    Very very sad, RIP. My last 2 boxes of 200gr xtp HV will represent for him when I eventually fire them off. I'm glad I got a chance to own and experience his exceptional work before he passed.
