 I have learned that our long time friend and member, Gary Strand "Ol Gabe"
has passed away. When I first joined NCOWS he was always very friendly
and helpful. He was a talented painter and I have a couple of his paintings.
You will be missed my friend. Thoughts and prayers to his family.

There is posse brewing up yonder, and a major straight shooter just signed in  :(
I like to believe they have a golden range, where errant shots don't count.
"Ol Gabe" will be there along with the others we miss, another of the GOOD guy's has gone home.

God speed Gary it was a pleasure......

Sad news indeed.

He was a character, to be sure. Made an impression on my daughter the one time she camped with me at the Nationals at Ackley. That was the year of the inaugural Originals shooting as a category.

He often posted here in CAS City, and was a staunch supporter of NCOWS.

Sad news indeed  :'(

He was a strong supporter of the GAF as well. IIRC he was one of the original officers of the Department of the Missouri.

I met Gary at the 2005 NCOWS convention.
The picture below is Gary and Micah, AKA Runs With Scissors, at the 2006 NCOWS convention.
I got to know Gary more at the GAF Musters at Ackley.
I always enjoyed his posts here on CAS City.
