    Man, this sucks - Chuck Karwan's book, The Gun Digest Book of Combat Handgunnery(3rd ed.) was a major influence on my early development as a shooter, and directly responsible for my predilections towards Glocks and S&W Centennials. I'm gonna miss his byline in the gun-mags...

    I used to like to read his stuff in the gun rags. Havn't seen much of him lately. R.I.P. sir

    Chuck Karwan was one of the great ones. I'm going to miss both the man and his work.

    I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Karwan at the Sahra in Vegas in 1997. We were there for the SOF convention. Coming around a corner I spotted Chuck and JR sitting at the bar. I walked up and asked if I could join them. They both said sure thing!

    Nice fellows, both.

    Chuck you will be missed!
