DOMIT he will be missed as long as any of us that knew him remain here at RFC.

He left a huge hole.

DOMIT, I am sure that Rusty left a real-world legacy that most RFCers know nothing about. I hope that all his family left behind also know that he left an on-line legacy that they may know nothing about.

I thank you for giving them that access and hope that you continue to remind all of them what a gift he was to so many people that they don't even know. He is still helping people. What an incredible gift! Having lost friends and family myself, I know how great it is to hear that a loved one affected people positively beyond our own knowledge. And Rusty sure did that.

Look forward to meeting him one day.
RIP my friend

I am new to guns and to this forum but I have read some of his contributions and I wished I had been fortunate enough to have met him. From what I have been able to discern, he was a fine man.

It's been a long time since I've visited this forum and I saw this thread out of the corner of my eye.

Here to pay my respects. RIP Rusty.

I am new to this forum and enjoyed having spent hours reading Cletus Hungwell's posts. I did not have the opportunity to get to know Cletus but from what I see, his contributions and participation to this forum has helped and still is helping others everyday. RIP

I may have posted this way way back...just want the new guys that click on this to understand whatta great innovator he was..he sadly never got to see this which was his idea..he PM'd me the idea and over a two month period got anxious to get me to do this..I was soooooo bizy I never did till after his passing...I still feel horrible about it and get a tear in my eye and a huge lump in my throat everytime I look at the gun this bolt is in..his Idea to "Heat Blue" this...came out straw yellow/gold...beautiful I loved Cletus..truly loved the guy.

If Rusty can get innerweb thingie in Heaven (and he is there) I hope he reads this...love ya Buddy.

Remembering Cletus in 2013.

Just this past weekend I went to my local range. Some guy was checking out my 10/22 build and noticed it didn't have a trigger return plunger. Made me think of Rusty.

Original, creative, innovative - above all a giver; a sharer of ideas, help and encouragement....and of course, maybe best of all, his humor!

Peace to all,
D.

I feel compelled to add my .22 cents.
I never knew Cletus nor had any interaction with him, but his legacy lives on through us.
Ive been a long time lurker of the RFC forum and have taken away lots of great information over the years. Cletus's name was a reoccuring feature on many of the most useful (to me) posts. Long after his passing, he continues to educate diyers and avid enthusiasts alike.
I truly appreciate his informative nature and seemingly endless need to share his wealth of knowledge with the members of this forum.
Though I never knew you, I consider you to be a friend.
May you continue to rest in peace.
