Rest In Peace – Michael Voigt

We have just learned that Pro Shooter Michael Voigt recently succumbed to cancer.

He was well known and highly regarded in the shooting community. Mike’s achievements are too numerous to list, but he was a multi-time IPSC National, International and World champion as ell as serving as President of the of the United States Practical Shooting Association for many years. He also worked for SureFire in an R&D role.

He will be missed, especially by his beloved wife, Maggie Voigt.

    I will tell what Mike wouldn’t, or couldn’t, while he was alive: he was instermental in preparing hundreds, if not thousands, of SMU operators develop the shooting skills needed to keep them alive in combat. He was a consummate professional and a true American patriot. RIP my friend and thank you for your honorable and selfless service to us over the years.

  4. That’s terrible news. He did so much for the community, that yes, “achievements are too numerous to list”. Mike was a patriot and did a lot of training with the military back in the day. Thank you Mike for supporting the military with your training and RIP!

    Sad news…I had the distinct privilege of competing against Mike on several occasions and never felt bad when he whooped my butt…Was an honor to see such a master at guncraft ply his trade….And always with a smile! Great man!

    He was and will remain a positive force in the shooting sports community.

    He was a true American icon and will be dearly missed.

    RIP Michael…Thank you for giving all of us something to “shoot” for.
