    We are pleased to announce that we have selected the first recipient of our Bill Hunter Service to Trapshooting Award. This award is named in honor of Bill Hunter who has been not only elected to the ATA Hall of Fame but to over a dozen state Halls of Fame as well for his decades of support for trapshooting. If you don’t know about Bill, paste this link. http://www.traphof.org/Inductees/Hunter-Bill.html


    When we requested nominations, we pointed out that we really would like to honor a person who may have worked for years a bit below the radar and that the person didn’t have to be just a supporter of registered shooting but all forms of trapshooting would be considered. We wanted a person who had materially improved the sport though their individual effort and foresight. We believe that we have found such a person.


    Our recipient has been personally responsible for providing the opportunity for all types of trapshooters to advance their knowledge, trade information, form lifelong friendships, generate incredible publicity for thousands of shoots, facilitate the sales and trading of millions of dollars of guns, supplies, components, equipment and products of all kinds, allow the trapshooting community to create a national identity and to enable that community to focus its collective goodwill any time a fellow trapshooter has encountered life challenges.


    Congratulations, David Van Elgort, Founder, Owner and Operator of Trapshooters.com.


    David will be joining us in Las Vegas to receive his award personally presented by Bill Hunter at our Awards Dinner Friday night May 20th. If you live or will be in Las Vegas you don’t have to be a participant in the Las Vegas 1000 to attend the Dinner. Just call our 800 number to buy tickets. You can join with us in honoring two men who share the love of the game and have stepped up in their own ways to make it a better sport for the rest of us.


    Join with us in saying, “Thank you David”.


    Gary Bombalicki and Jim Tyner

    Excellent Choice, not only for the usefulness and quality of the service he has provided for us for so many years but for the unpretentious manner in which he does it.
