    A sad loss

    Deepest sympathy to Dave's family - for BFTA I suspect he will be irreplaceable.

    Sad loss of a Gentleman.

    Only met the chap twice on this years GP rounds, but he quite obviously was a great chap and did loads for all us FT shooters, plus many other I am sure. A good bloke that will be missed, my feelings go out to his Family especially at this time of year, such a loss.

    He will be greatly missed by the sport and the sportsmen involved, but will never be forgotten.

    My thoughts are with his family and friends.

    I met and talked to Dave on quite a few occasions and he also put himself out for me when I needed some new ratchet straps for East Devon FTC late last year, Sadly I never got the chance to shoot with Dave. My condolences to pauline and family from all at East Devon FTC and SWEFTA. RIP Dave ,a true gent and a giant of the airgunning world.

    I can't believe I'm reading this. Dave is/was a true giant amongst men in airgun shooting. A great ambassador for airgunnning, I find it hard to think of him not being there

    Dave you'll be missed

    I can only add to what has already been written - deeply saddened by this news, its really knocked me for six; rest assured, when I see a target placed almost 40 foot in the air, I will be thinking of you Dave.

    A great man, a great sportsman and a great friend.
