Chuck Hawks Passes

For the past two and one half years Chuck has been battling stage four Pancreatic cancer. Early in the morning of August 23, 2021 he'd had enough and "slipped the surly bond of earth to touch the face of God."

Chuck Hawks was an avid recreational shooter for over 50 years. In addition, he was a noted researcher, writer and professional photographer. Many of his photos are still being sold as picture post cards!

Chuck's shooting career started when he was selected to join his high school rifle team in his freshman year. He sold guns and outdoor equipment at the retail level. When in the United States Air Force he qualified "Expert" with both rifle and pistol and was invited to try out for the USAF National Shooting Team. Later, he taught a guns and shooting seminar for the local community college. As a Benefactor member of the NRA (USA) and a Complementary member of the National Firearms Association (Canada) he always supported firearm rights.

Chuck began writing about guns and shooting during his college days and founded Guns and Shooting Online in 1997. The website was his passion and he poured tremendous energy into it. He was intent on providing the latest and most accurate information to his readers to help them understand and appreciate the subject he enjoyed so much. This enthusiasm brought readers from around the world.

In addition to the website Chuck was passionate about Oregon Duck football, cats, airplanes, motorcycles and fast cars. Growing up in California instilled in him a love for the water. He enjoyed going on cruises and sailing. At his request his ashes will be cast out to sea--"Fair winds and following seas" forever.

The web site will go on as it will be willed to one of the shooters that already writes for Guns & Shooting Online.

Thank you for your understanding as we transition.

Sincerely,

Suzie Patterson

Chuck's Tech Support Gal for about 25 years. I will miss him dearly.
