November 7th, 2017 marks one year since Mike Dillon passed. In that time the company that he built has continued to strive towards the goals and standards that Mike established. We frequently ask ourselves “What did Mike say about this?” or “How would Mike have handled that?” and those conversations have helped to guide and inform us as we move forward. We have also heard, and appreciated, the many condolences and tributes that fans of Mike’s work have communicated to us and we are thankful for your continued support.
In the November edition of The Blue Press, on page 5, there is a touching tribute to Mike Dillon written by his family. It is well worth reading as it reminds us all of Mike’s many achievements in life, his dedication to his family, and his lasting impact on several industries.
It seems trite to say that someone “touched so many lives”, because we’ve all heard it said so many times, but Mike truly did have an influence on the direction of an industry that has helped to make metallic cartridge reloading more accessible and more practical for a multitude of shooters. Mike liked to shoot and he wanted to find a way to do so without breaking the bank. I think we can all relate to that and we can all be glad that he had the drive and ingenuity to create something that we, as shooters, can all benefit from.
