    I remember his posting as intuitive, respected, and respectful.

    I started missing him long ago when he backed off on his presence here.

    Heaven is a more secure place with him there - if that's possible ... knowing who the guardian is up there ...

    A class act. He'll be missed.

    Rest easy, sir.

    I was first aware of Standing Wolf way back on the forums at thefiringline.com.

    After graduating college and moving to Colorado, I got involved with a small group of guys that shot Bullseye pistol once a week. Standing Wolf was a man of the old school ways of pistol shooting, and as it turned out, we lived in the same town. A discussion between us led him to join that group for Bullseye practice.

    In person, Standing Wolf presented in a way that I could only describe as classic college professor, thin build, taught face, dressed in slacks, sometimes a vest, sometimes a sport coat, with the one difference being that he always had a revolver on his belt, more often than not a short-barreled, comped S&W .44 magnum.

    Personality wise, he could come across as a bit of a grump, and he had very little patience for useless people. However, for anyone who showed an interest, he could show a level of generosity and enthusiasm I have seen in only a vanishingly small number of people.

    As far as guns went, Standing Wolf was a man of the old school, and he had a keen interest in precision .22 target pistols, especially High Standards, and magnum revolvers made by Colt and Smith & Wesson.

    After a couple of years, I drifted away from Bullseye and into the action shooting sports, and Standing Wolf eventually relinquished his shooting practice due to health problems, but we did still correspond occasionally.

    I was truly saddened to hear of his passing, and I will always consider him a friend.

    I haven't been reading lately and am sorry to see this today. SW was a true gentleman, and I enjoyed our correspondence some time back when I purchased an old Colt DS from him that he carried during a brief stint as a corrections officer. Godspeed, sir.

    Wow, I just saw this. Sorry to hear this. I enjoyed reading his posts on all the forums I belonged to. He was a well spoken gentleman and very intelligent. Sad news indeed.
