    Congrads to Leo for shooting so well at Ohio. I read 1196x1200. WOW The man is a machine. And we all know he and family are such great people. You couldn't pick a better spokesman for our Sport.

    I was wondering if Leo has all the records yet. If not he will as he seams to get better even for his standards.
    I read that he has over 30 200's just at the grand.
    I met Arnold Reager at the Grand in 1962 an he had 1400 straight as the record at that time.
    I'm sure Trap & Field have those records and wonder if they would print them in an upcoming magazine.
    Always Allen

    longest run in singles - 2167 Earl Scripture
    longest run in doubles - Sean Hawley, not sure how many targets in a row around 1300
    longest run in handicap - 503 Daro Handy
    Highest HAA at a ATA sanctioned shoot - 400x400 Phil Kiner.

    From the record books it looks like Leo holds about 4 records.

    There are a lot of great trapshooters, but it appears that Leo has just shot to the top. Like George Digweed in sporting clays,( and Tiger Woods in golf) he has become a notch ahead of everyone else.

    He is still lacking that Grand American Handicap ring...maybe this year. Kay Ohye is the only shooter to hold a ring/championship in all five of the major events at the Grand. He waited until he was in his 60's to accomplish this, that gives Leo almost 10 more years.....
