I remember him mostly from an article he did for Shooting Sportsman, Sept/Oct 2002: "The Ubiquitous Screw Grip". I pulled out my file on British doubles, and his article is the first one I find. I remembered his article when I bought a Webley & Scott Model 400 Grade 1 from George Caswell and was looking for more information on the screw grip. A good friend still owns that gun.

Is he writing the Phantom comic books? Is he one of the four founders of FREW publications?

Anything is possible, but I cant imagine this is the case.

There are probably two Ron Forsyths who are authors in Austrailia, then. smile Google FREW Publications. Maybe a relative?

In this case, Ron Forsyth was his pen name.
Not sure if he ever publicly posted his given name.

I just brought it up because I saw it. That's why I had question marks after my statements. I figured someone might figure it out. Anyone here from Austrilia who might know? 🙂

"Ron Forsyth", I'm reasonably sure, was a nom de plume. I've not seen it used as a byline for a good while.
I always enjoyed his and Murray Mitchell's - Bwana Samaki - articles in the old ASJ when I was younger.
I think he may be still going strong under another name, writing of guns, planes, cars etc on a blog of his own.
