    Can any one give me info on this buckle. It has the name Loren Hardy on it. I was wondering if he had won this or if he had something to do with the EC. Or did they put his name on all buckles that were won in that year. Thanks in advance. Not the best of pictures.

    Doug,
    If it's the same Loren that I knew, he was from NY at one time and a good friend of Chris Vendels, you might try Chris for the info.

    Looks like the buckles the Missouri Trapshooting Assn. buys for their state shoot and maybe others. I have one just like it but with the event name and class where the name is on the buckle pictured.

    I believe it was probably a purchased buckle and not a trophy.

    Loren Hardy was a shooter from New Hampshire who I believe is now deceased. He was a nice guy other than that I don't know more. I didn't know him real well.
