Paul Gomez, R.I.P.

I was notified today of the passing of Paul Gomez, a fine trainer and at 41 years-old much much too young. Paul was the great master of the AK-47 platform, and an exceptional person to spend time with. He ran Gomez International Firearms Training. Details are sparse at this point, but I refer you to fellow trainer Andy Stanford's moving eulogy on the S&W Forums.

I understand that members of the training community are going to be putting together a Paul Gomez Memorial Conference, with all proceeds going to Paul's children. I will unconditionally support that project, and will keep you all informed.

Rest in peace, brother...
