Chuck Taylor Passed Away May 5th

Didn't find out about it until this weekend.

Remember reading some of his articles in Combat Handguns and maybe SWAT years ago.

I hadn't heard, thanks. I read a lot of his stuff years ago. I disagreed with him on a few things, but overall enjoyed his writing.

he claimed a lot of bs, basically. He got fired as editor of 'gungho" magazine cause he got caught faking himself being shot with a 308 rifle, while wearing rifle-rated armor. he claimed that his MAC-10 would feed swc cast loads. Well, Bill Wilson and I witnessed him having constant failures to feed lrn ammo. during the 1977 US IPSC Nationals. He did have the integrity to always use a secure holster, didn't join cooper in the lies about the glock, quit cooper's employ when Jeff cheated on the smg, pistol, rifle shotgun comparison matches, but I'm pretty sure he made up all the stories he wrote about guys executing a "Mosambique". Hack thought so, too. He was never all that fast at getting hits. I never got the chance to see if he could print tight groups with a pistol. and such stuff means nothing anyway.
