Frank W. James Goes West

Frank W. James, 69, of Wolcott [Ind.], passed away at 7:34 p.m. Tuesday, September 15, 2015 at his home surrounded by his family.
Frank had a stroke early last year. For awhile, it seemed that he was improving and he had even blogged a couple of times.

He was a prolific gunwriter and a well-respected authority on submachine guns.

I had a couple of dealings with him, even though I never got to meet him. I thought he was a true gentleman.

Rest in peace, Frank.

(By the way, if somebody offers you the job of "shooting editor" at Shooting Times, run like hell. Frank James was named to that job a few months before his stroke. His predecessor was murdered.)

He was a true gentleman in the finest sense of the word.
