    He just beamed after you did that - he told us that big guy that shoots good asked for my autograph. I think that was a highlight he will never forget. He is the one that originally helped me get started shooting - he and Charles my husband.

    I remember the first time I shot next to Mr. Snow. He was my partner in a buddy shoot. He moves kinda slow when you change stations, but man can he crush the birds. The guy is an incredible shot.

    My buddies and I could always tell from a distance when Jim was shooting, because his reloader was a little light on powder some times and Jim consistently shot bloopers.

    Happy Birthday Mr. Snow. I hope we get to shoot together again soon!

    Getting Miramar Shotgun Sports open again. I bet that's what Jim wants for his birthday, and I hope he can celebrate his 100th there with all his friends.

    Dianne and Bill Savage had red t-shirts made to mark the occasion of Jim's first 100 registered targets. I still have mine in the trophy cab, signed by Jim Snow and the trap and field magazine.

    For those that have never met Jim you can go to the Hall of fame on the ATA website under personalities and read about him incredible person.

    I've posted the link above to the Birthday card with messages from folks that have sent me a message for Jim. 99 and counting. His image is on that card. I've asked his daughter if she has some old pix of Jim I can add to that page.
