This is sad news. Will walked me through so many AR issues via ******** messenger. He was a very busy guy who gave generously of his time and knowledge. We spoke recently about his upcoming class in Vermont.

I worked with Will at Camp Nowhere up in Kunduz.

Just an FYI, Gunz was art of the BW family. There is a fundraising link for him on the alum page

I can post it here however a quick google search should find it.

I only took his class once, and I almost certainly felt like I was drinking from a firehose. I was looking forward to taking it again to fill in the gaps that I had missed.

RIP brother, you taught us so much collectively. I, for one, will continue to preach the Gospel: State your Castle Nut!

I always enjoyed his insights on here, especially when dealing with weapons issues(as a fellow gun plumber, though nowhere near his caliber). Rest in Peace sir. Too young...

Wow. Rest in peace, brother. My condolences to his family and friends. Definitely a shocker and reminder of how much life is just a vapor.
