My thoughts and prayers are with his family...
A fine pistol has lost a good friend and advocate and we have lost another fellow enthusiast. Requiescat in pace, sir.
My sincere condolences to those who mourn his loss at far too young an age.
It is regrettable to me that I never got to meet Steve in person. I feel (like many others, no doubt) that he was a mentor that helped me very much in the early phases of my shooting and heavy interest in the BHP. His books, especially Defensive Handguns, are unbelievably articulate, helpful, and informational, while being entertaining to boot.
I will miss him greatly, and the 2A community is greatly diminished with his passing.
Rest in peace, Steve.
The armed community lost a great ambassador and friend to thousands. It is truly a sad day in America. Steve was the epitome of class and dedication. All the best, Steve. You are in God's hands now.
Another good man gone, far too soon. Yet what a great legacy he leaves behind - would that we could all do so well. Condolences to his family and friends.
A true Gentleman...I called him friend but I only knew him through his writings, buying some of his books, email and my participation in his and Teddy Jacobson's Project Street Gun #1 Class...I finally bought a Hi Power in part because of him...Godspeed my friend...prayers for your Family...
I wish him many fireside chats with JMB...Thank you Mr Camp..
Mr Camp is already missed here on Earth, but he definitely left his legacy and many good memories. Prayers and best to his family and friends during these times.
You left many friends behind that thought highly of you, may we all follow that lead. RIP Sir...
I never read a post of his that put-down even the worst of opinions. Always polite, to the point. A class-act...
Mr. Camp was a huge benefit to the shooting community and a gentleman whose patience seemed to have no breaking point. I feel fortunate to have talked with him online and met him even once. He was a great asset to THR and will be sorely missed by supporters of the Second Amendment. While his life was shorter than it should have been, his accomplishments are enough to fill several lifetimes.
Always a gentleman.
Helpful, thoughtful, patient, kind.
We are diminished.
He was a good man with whom I had the honor of corresponding on several occasions. He was well-respected in his field and a true gentleman. He will be missed.
May God bless him and keep him.
He autographed his book "Paid in Full" for me. A very down to earth and all around nice guy...
Darn! Prayers sent...
RIP, sir. Thank you for all you do for the community.
What a loss to our community. Like many others here, I to corresponded with him about BHP issues. He was always cordial and professional. My condolences and prayers go out to his family.
A great loss to the firearms community.
I'd had the pleasure to correspond on BHPs with Mr. Camp and was always delighted to see anything he wrote.
A great loss.
Very bad news.
Stephen Camp was one of the finest gentlemen I ever "met" on the internet. He was universally respected and admired. I owe my interest in Hi Powers to him and will always be proud to have known him. I feel lucky to have copies, inscribed and autographed by S.A.C., of The Shooter's Guide to the Browning Hi Power, Hi Power Disassembly, and Defensive Handguns.
A terrible loss to his family and to all of us.
Though I was born before Mr. Camp, I always felt he was the elder and the wiser. When I had a question for him concerning a pistol, he would always take the time to reply either directly or via post. He treated me as an equal yet he was far more knowledgeable with experience to back it up. I will miss him.
So sorry to hear the news.
He was also a credit to the CZ community as well.
I admired and respected his generosity with the shooting community and his thorough firearm reviews. I wish Godspeed to Stephen, and my sincere condolences to his family and friends.
A reminder to all that yesterday is a canceled check; tomorrow is a promissory note; today is the only cash you have - so spend it wisely. Don’t delay spending time with family and friends, and express to them what they mean to you, for we know not what tomorrow will bring.
condolences to his family and (many) friends.
Always loved to read his writings on "our" national BHP.
Hope someone keeps his website up, so he will live "forever" trough his work.
Greetings from Belgium
A lost that can not be replaced for shooting enhusiasts...
May God bless his soul and his loved ones...
So sad to hear of his passing. May he rest in peace, and God Bless his family. I had just gotten his Hi Power book (which he most graciously autographed for me), and the disassembly guide just two weeks ago. I'm new to the Hi Power, but I'll cherish his work and think of him as I get more interested in these fine weapons.
