Eddie Rhodes 1954-2010

The world of 3Gun and competitive shooting lost one of the greats this week. Eddie Rhodes died of a heart attack while out on a jog.

I first met Eddie a couple of years ago at the local Pueblo Tactical Rifle matches. At the time, he was the match director, and had a talent for designing some of the most difficult rifle stages I’ve ever shot. Those stages, and his advice on how to shoot them had a direct and positive impact on my ability to shoot a rifle.

Eddie is a legend. He will be sorely missed, both for his knowledge and character.
