    A very sad loss, my thoughts are with Mick’s family who can console themselves with the fact that a great many people will remember Mick with fondness and respect in the shooting community for many years to come.

    A great great man

    Mick was not only an airgun inventor/maker he was a great man

    He will be greatly missed, I have many many great memories of him. Getting drunk in his front room on some dodgy white spirit he was giving me or was it turps? I know not, but it was a night to remember if only I could!

    All the best to Pat and family

    I have just spoken to Pat, she would like to thank everyone who attended micks funeral yesterday, and also to thank everyone who donated to the cancer charity.

    RIP mate, you will be sadly missed
