MSTN is right on--Pat's writing is accurate, reliable, practical, and effective. It does not get any better.

David is emerging as a prolific writer on firearms related topics. He formerly and may currently log on to Assaultweb and AK47.net as 14.5. as far as I know. He seems like a good guy, FWTW. Jim

In his review of the .21 Ghangis in SGN, he (Fortier) quotes Dr Fackler word for word without giving credit.

Well I have read his most recent article in Rifle Shooter, he needs to research what Mils really are, he repeats the often cited error on what mils are and goes on state something about them that was totally false.

This aint recrimination - think one of his articles lauded SAI/Gary Gucciano. Got no dog in that fight, but damn how could you miss that one. Luck Alac

NO SCHIT !! (Lauding Gary Gucciano is kinda like nominating Hitler for the Nobel Peace Prize.)

I find his writing style curiously annoying.

He is your basic Gun Writer. Praising Gary Gucciano for nothing more then an internet reputation shows that research is not one of his strong points!

Maybe I'm just jealous, but how does get access to all those goodies that he puts in his articles. If they are personal firearms I envy him. If they are dealer samples I would like for a few of them to be thrown my way! A fellow with that kind of collection deserves to write articles. Its nice to see a younger guy get his foot in the door of these publications. No one else writes on the same subject manner that he does.

Not all the stuff is his, although quite a bit of it is. The AKSU and RPK that're seen quite a bit, along with the AKS-74 in Plum, belong to a friend of mine (and his) named Marco. Dave, Marc Krebs, and Marco took a trip to Russia about 2 years ago IIRC to meet MTK and folks in the the Nikonov and Kalashnikov Design Bureaus. From what I hear Fortier's a good guy. Most of the stuff he writes about Kalashnikovs is dead-on, so no complaints there. His article on the AN-94 was pretty damned awesome, and his photographer is also top notch. She's no Ichiro Nagata, but she's got plenty talent. -Cap'n

Most Gun Writers cater to special interest! Why, because a lot of their "Collections" come from such catering (Penny on the dollar deals after a stunning review or outright "Gifts" after said reviews). Not to say Mr. Fortier practices the same, but after posting concerns to SAI (Gary Gucciano, Over the Internet) why his Krink was not delivered after many months over due and the fact he wrote a stunning review months before his Krink was ever delivered, Kinda makes you wonder doesn’t it?
