Ricky Read has left the range

Gary Slawik News

The Benchrest community has lost another great competitor. Ricky Read passed away Saturday, 6/4/22, he was 68 years old. Rick had accumulated 4 Hall Of Fame points as well as a respectful 67.0 (Silver) Precision Rifleman Points, qualifying in 2002. His quiet demeanor and patience at the bench, made Ricky a tough competitor.

Rick retired in 2018 from Ingersoll Rand after 46 years, in his youth, Rick built muscle cars, was an avid rock climber and enjoyed hiking, including hundreds of miles on the Appalachian Trail.

I will miss his stern advice on my shooting skills, always trying to get me to calm down and focus on the important details.

Information regarding his services will be found on

With Respect and Sadness
