    If any of you guys were not yet aware, Barry Hutchins, (aka Airgunner on many many forums), sadly passed away late last Saturday night, after a short illness.

    Barry was at peace, comfortable, and surrounded by his family at the time he slipped away.


    Barry was well known for his involvement in HFT in the early days of it's inception, particularly with the photographic side of things.

    He generosity and willingness to help out anyone is legendary, both on the forums, and by inviting both new and seasoned shooters to join him on his permissions.

    He made many friends along the way, all of whom I'm sure will be very much saddened at the news of his passing.


    Goodbye my dear friend, and rest in peace.

    My sincere condolences go out to his family, and many friends.

    Very sad news :(

    I initially met 'Uncle Barry' via the UKAHFT Nationals a few years back and last met up with him about 2 years ago - I cant say I knew him well, but he was definatley; a very jovial guy, who had plenty of time for others and a great ambassador for our sport.

    If you speak with his family, please pass on my sincere condolences.

    R.I.P. Barry.

    Sincere condolences to his family and friends at this time. He was so passionate about the sport and air gunning. I'm sure he will be greatly missed.
