I only know Mike from reading here, but it's sad to hear someone who is an asset to the 10mm community leaves this world way too young. Perhaps the stress of trying to keep his business alive in these financial difficult times contributed to his unfortunate heart attack.

I never had the chance to buy any of his full power ammo since I live in Europe, and it's too bad all his recipes for full power 10mm ammo will most likely be lost forever.

Also a great loss for this forum as he was someone who really knew what he was talking about and was more than willing to give good advice. Maybe someone with a lot of time on his hands could bundle some of his wisdom that he wrote here in the past year in a sticky thread?

My sincere condolences to his family, dogs and friends. He really seemed to give a whole new generation of 10mm enthusiasts something worth shooting.

RIP Mike

I like the sticky idea. Guess I'm still in shock as I still can't believe Mike isn't with us anymore. At least for me, that's gonna take awhile to get used to.

RIP William Michael Willard. Condolences to his family and all who knew him.

RIP, Mike. I wish I had a chance to shoot that stuff. You will be missed.

I am very very saddened by this. I really admired and supported his initiative.

Great guy.

Saw this thread and it hit me like a bat to the head. I never bought any of his ammo. But I was very happy he was there to service the 10mm community and it's shooters.

felt like this thread needed a bump after seeing so many people posting in the other swampfox thread...

Wow, I haven't been on here in about two months . . .

Very sad news, indeed. I did not know him but he seem like a genuinely great guy.

He will be missed by many.
