Default Terrible news.

It is with great sorrow that I have to inform you that Ray Ross passed away yesterday afternoon (Weds 27th) after a long battle with illness.
As soon as I hear any more details I will post them on here and the N.W.Assc forums.

Ray was a great personal friend and friends to many on the national airgun circuit. He will be sadly missed. Personally, the sport will never be the same again.

R.I.P. Ray.
