    A great contributor, and knowledgable gentleman.
    A thread in the shotgun forum was never complete unless it interested Dave enough to contribute.
    We have all lost.

    I waited to add some words in this thread wanting to write something good knowing comments were being read to him, and clearly waited too long.
    That has reminded me not to take for granted the time we have with others.

    My sincere condolences to the family. I never had the pleasure of meeting Mr. McCracken in person, but his wonderful posts went a long way towards making me a better shotgunner.

    I didn't know Dave, but stand with those who did, praying for his family. Heaven now has a shotgun guy.

    And a finer instructor for their skeet team could never be found!

    Most of the knowledge I have in reloading shotshell, and shotshell construction/formulation/tolerances came from private discussions with Dave.

    Thats his legacy to me, and knowledge that I will cherish to the end of my days.

    Thanks, Dave. You will be sorely missed.

    Dave's legacy to many here is the advice that he gave in such a pleasant and non-judgmental way. In a thread a few months ago he told me "Shotguns have unmatched terminal performance. Please reconsider what your primary weapon will be...." and I listened. I've had a pistol and a shotgun by the bed ever since.

    My condolences to Dave's family. :(

    From Dave McCracken's wife

    Thank you all for being a part of Dave's life. As I said before, he felt enriched by being a part of this community.

    Dave passed peacefully at home. We were all together, our children and his dog were with him. He loved life and was loved. We will all cherish his memory.
