    Right after Devon was handed that big check, Bill Martin and his wife announced that everyone who participated in the shoot out would also receive a check for $5,000. What a family. Gotta love it.

    Big time oilmen. Started as roughnecks. Everyone should thank them for what they are doing for our sport. True American generosity at the grassroots level.

    Awesome. Wish I'd been there to see it and I hope someone took pictures.

    Thanks Martins, look forward to next year in SPARTA, IL!

    All the Martins' want is for the ATA to prosper and to shoot whenever they can. Oh, and cold one once in a while.

    Hell that was nothing, their giving a total of $300,000. for next year's Grand. $200.000 is to be doled out in a high overall LEWIS CLASS! That'll bring in the shooters. Way to go Martins! The Main Entry Building should be renamed the MARTIN TRAPSHOOTING CENTER!

    He won with Federal paper 2 3/4 8's, that was the shell he was using. Devon told me "you don't need those big handicap loads".
