Frank DeSomma was fatally injured last night in a car accident in Phoenix, Arizona.

Frank was a legend in the firearms industry. He was a trusted friend and partner of the Davidson's organization. Many of us have personal stories and memories of our time with Frank. So very many that knew him are hurting today.

SHOT Show, NASGW, NRA, Gallery of Guns TV ‐ Frank was always generous with his time and treated us with the utmost respect.

If you didn't know Frank, there aren't enough words to accurately describe the kind of man he was. The best we can do is let the man speak for himself:

Our sincere condolences go out to Frank's family. We in the industry, and we as people, are indeed lessened by the loss of Frank.

However, our lives were enriched because of him.

Go fly high on that mountain...
