    Is name is spelled Gerald Burkhart.

    Sorry to hear of his passing.

    I knew him from AJ Olivito and Geroge Levkovitz these guys have 3 in a half million targets between them. Shooting machines.

    Gerald was the shooter with the most ATA lifetime singles, over 1 1/2 million. I talked with him at many major shoots. Don't know his exact age? 50 some. His last address that I knew was Malvern,Ohio. He did not shoot for a high average near.82 but went for volume. He shot his caps from the 22 yd. line. He shot mostly 1oz. reclaimed shot loads.

    I had the honor of shooting with Jerry at the ACRC a few times last fall.

    He was a true gentleman.

    I am sorry to hear of his passing.

    The trapshooting world has a piece missing from now on.
