Practical shooters and good guys everywhere lost a great friend and an amazingly versatile tactician/trainer with the unexpected loss of Paul Gomez of Gomez Training International. I knew Paul for years and the only thing that exceeded his encyclopedic knowledge of and innovations in firearms training was his love of life and his great good nature. Bob McEachern and I were with him just a few weeks ago and I am proud to say that he stayed at my home while teaching at the recent Northeast Summit. To those of us who knew him, his loss is devastating. The tiny glimpses of his skill, style and innovations already up on the internet are a heartrending reminder of the immeasurable talent we have lost. Rest in peace Paul.
