The founding editor of Sporting Gun Magazine has sadly died at the age of 77. Mike George first published Sporting Gun in 1976 and continued to work in the industry for over 40 years.
The magazine’s current editor, Matthew Clark, described him as man who was “superb at picking out bargains and excellent value buys. Readers found his words very instructive and he had an unparalleled knowledge of gun and field sports.
“A true professional to the last, Mike always handed his copy in on time, despite suffering from the effects of a serious illness. He was a top reviewer and his contributions will be missed by all.”
