The Passing of James D. Surdo Jr.

It is with much sadness I can report that Jimmy Surdo has passed away.

Jimmy was a fixture at Westside Range, as well as in the gun community in New York City’s five boroughs.

Jimmy was the force behind the Chelsea Gun Club as well as a resource and advocate for lawful gun ownership in the City.

During the course of his life he wore many hats. From Law Enforcement to civilian gun advocate to family man. But the one hat I shall always remember was the one of “friend”.

My condolences to the family that he leaves behind.

Details of his funeral arrangements as well as instructions on how to send flowers or have a tree planted in Jimmy’s memory can be found here.
