Stephen A. Camp passed away




Found this here: http://www.24hourcampfire.com/ubbthr...00#Post5281400

"Yesterday at around lunchtime Mr. Camp suffered a brain aneurism. He was lifelifted to Ft Worth.

The the life support was pulled last night, and nature is taking its course."


He has been THE Hi-Power guru for many many years and has never hesitated to extend help to others. This news is very very sad. My thoughts and prayers to all concerned.

Wow, that is truly upsetting news Let us hope it is some sort of mistake or that nature's course is more forgiving than anticipated.

This is so very sad to hear.

As a BHP enthusiast, Mr. Camp was a guiding light to me on many questions. He was always willing to offer his knowledge to help others, and do it in a respectful manner. Once Mr. Camp spoke on a BHP subject, pretty much that was it.

Thank you Mr. Camp!

Very sad...I considered Stephen a friend even though my friendship was based upon reading his writings, participating in his and Teddy Jacobson's Project Street Gun class and sharing some emails with him...my thoughts and prayers for Stephen and his Family...

This is incredibly sad news. Mr. Camp is irreplaceable. To say that he will be missed is an understatement. Prayers and condolences to his family, and to the entire gun community, for his loss. May God rest his soul.

Try not to fall into the common trap of wanting to replace everything on your new 1911 just to make it "better". Know what you're changing out, and why. You may spend a lot of money fixing things that weren't broken to begin with. Shoot it for at least 500 rounds, then decide what you don't like and want improved. Vintage 1911's should NEVER be refinished or modified because it ruins any value they had as a collectible firearm.
