One of the fundamental truths of the universe is that there isn't anything that cannot be improved with the addition of pirates, ninjas, midgets or monkeys.

For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil. Romans 13:4

Holy crap. I was reading this and not believing what I was reading. Brother, your memory will live on as long as our collective memory of your contributions in here and outside of here live on.

I just spoke with him a few weeks ago. Fuck. What an opinionated asshole, thats why we got along so well. I learned so much from him over the years, he was truly a giant in the firearms industry.

I have a very small circle of friends, Will was one of them. I will miss our talks.

Damnit, just damn it all to hell. Will was a mentor to me and many others on this board as well as other big AR forums. Will has probably forgotten more than any of us will ever learn about the AR and its countless platforms. I met him back when he was part-time gun plumbing for BCM, and happy when he found a good place with Josh at Sionics. He had what seemed like endless patience with me in the beginning of my plunge into building guns, and all of the questions I would ask. Will could use the word "fuck" like it was the Swiss Army knife of the English language, and it was usually directed at me. The last time I saw him was at SHOT 2018, but we kept in touch every other month. I don't know what else to say other than I will miss you brother, and our annual drink at the Leatherneck in LVNV. Slainte!

First Ron Bellan in Feb, my nephew earlier this week, and now Will. WTF 2019?!?! I will be in a bottle for the rest of the day if anyone is looking for me.
