Made me very sad. I did not know him personally but his reputation as not only a world class shooter but a world class guy are well deserved.

I won't share my feelings about the sub humans using his death for political agendas.

Already under discussion.
Still happily answering to the call-sign Peetza.
The problem, as you so eloquently put it, is choice.
