    Just seems fitting that the last shot be taken by a 27 yarder.Is there anyway to get a reprint of this shot? Ray

    Right click on the picture and SAVE it to your computer. You can then print it or use it as a digital photo.

    Hey Ed,

    How did you manage to get the honor of being the last shot?

    Good thing you didn't miss :)


    EDIT - Nevermind, found the answer online...that was one expensive shot, but such a great memory!

    Might be the last registered target or last GA target, but definitely not THE last one.

    Depending on how you intend to use the photo you might want to check on the copyright for this photo and also the 2005 GA, "Vandalia - The last morning" photo.

    He outbid me on Ebay. Ed offered me a spot on the squad but i was a short yarder. Great guy. I think final bid was like $5000 for the honor.

    I bought this from HOF auction. It is framed along with two metals they handed out. This is a 1 of 1 item.

    Funny but that target looks a lot bigger in that picture than when I shot it.

    I beleive a soon to be famous artist painted a portrait of that photo. If I'm not mistaken it's hanging in an already famous trapshooters den. Hey Ed, maybe if we keep talking about it we can mass produce them and sell them. Ed, you keep talking on here, I'm going to buy more paint and then I'm going right to my old man's house to get him started. I may get that Super Scroll after all.

    That was the last shot at Vandalia, but Ed has a few more to go. Pleasure to know him.
