    My friend and fine shooter Bill Young of West Virginia passed away early this morning. I will miss him very much. His wife passed away 30 days ago.

    Rick- Thank you, but trapshooting, not just me, lost a good friend. Bill was a Delegate for many years and the first West VA shooter to make the 27 yard line.

    Sympathy goes out to family and friends of Bill Young and the tragic loss of his wife just 30 days ago. Some situations only God understands.

    A great loss for trapshooting and for shooters. I first shot with Bill in 1964 when I was 11 years old and he has remained a friend since. Always someone I've looked up to both as a boy and as an adult. Just a sad, sad day. My prayers go out to his family.

    I hate to hear of the passing of Bill. I met him for the first time at a Phil Kiner clinic at the Buckhorn Gun Club in North Carolina.

    We also had the pleasure of parking beside him at the 2004 Grand American in Vandalia Ohio.

    Randy- I want, I very much want, copies of the photos you have of Bill and Ken. A personal story about the gun Ken is holding. It was my gun and I moved up to a more expensive gun and sold it to Bill. Then Bill started beating me with the gun. Then, Bill sold it to Ken and he started beating both of us with the gun. I have so many memories of Bill Young.

    Bill Young was a gentleman and good friend. We always refered to each other as "Cousin", eventhough we were not knowingly related. He will be missed by the entire trapshooting community.

    Easy way to get the picture of Bill & Buddy at GA 2004....or any pix on net. Right click on the image, save to a folder in your pictures in computer, put on CD, take to wally world or other to have picture made.

    checker- The best way for me to get copies is when I see Randy in Florida is to grab him by the neck and ask where it is. If he forgot, he could drive back to North Carolina and bring one the next day.
