    I'm very sorry to hear this.

    I don't post much here these days, and this was the first I've heard of that.

    RC was quite a man, and was always helpful to those that asked. RC was, and continues to be, a role model in many ways. The world is a lesser place without him.

    RIP RC.

    His great knowledge will be missed, but his willingness to share it with others will be remembered. I learned a whole lot from such a generous man. Requies in pace.

    Wow, like just Tuesday or something. Dang.

    I lost a buddy on the 10mm forum. Just stings.

    Both in heaven. Enjoy your time with friends people. Met two new fine fellows at the range yesterday. Hmmmm....

    I regularly use 'Tips' that RC Model so generously shared with me and others through THR.

    He Is Gone, But Not Forgotten!

    He was just one of those naturally likeable and good people. We all miss his post and he was a wealth of really good information. Yes, hard to believe 5 years have passed since his passing.

    Thought about RC just last week.
    Did a google search and an old THR thread popped up. RC posted on it, I felt a little sad when I saw his post.

    His wisdom is missed, and irreplaceable.

    May God be with you RC! This gentleman has helped me out many times in the past, and was a true knowledgeable and friend here on THR. He will be missed.

    Sad news to hear of a fellow forum member meet their untimely death. I know none of us are going to get out of this life alive but you still hate to hear when someone passes. My condolences to his family and friends.
