Re: Ian McMurchy Has Passed Away!

I didn't know Ian either, but it was his writing that lead me to this site. It was also writing that secured my interest in shooting long range. He may have passed but his works will continue to breath life into something he clearly loved. My heart goes out to his family and friends.

Re: Ian McMurchy Has Passed Away!

I thoroughly enjoyed reading Ian's articles. They were both informative and entertaining. when he left us he took a lot of knowledge and experience with him not to mention being a great all around man and ambasador for the shooting and hunting communities. He will be missed, although I believe He knew the Lord and is in a much better place now.

My deepest sympathy and prayers for those who loved him.

I was very sad to hear of Ian's passing. As a fellow Canadian outdoor writer, I can tell you that he was admired by many and was always a gentleman. He will be missed.

Re: Ian McMurchy Has Passed Away!

Ian's passing was very sad for me as well but after reading alot of your posts I realized how lucky I was to have spent as many days with the man as I did. I met Ian when I took my daughter to his house so his wife could teach her piano. There was a large gun safe in the house and when I asked Ian what he had in there he told me to come on in his office and the rest is history. Ian was a kind, polite, caring, humble man that was easy to spend time with. He would always answer whatever question I had as soon as he could. I was fortunate to have his guidance in building my long range weapon which shoots 4 inch groups at 500 yds.

I had made it a resolution about 5 yrs ago to develope more quality friends in this life and Ian was definitely one of those. I miss him dearly.
