    To all those completed careers. Some we knew well, some we knew slightly and some we didn't know at all. But we all shared the love of our sport. God bless and you are all missed.

    David Cummings of Libby Mt. passed away in August of this year, according to a good Colorado shooter that shot with Dave whenever he got the chance. I only shot with Dave a few times. Years ago he could really tear em up.

    Lou,

    You will have to ask Ted, I have no idea and since I didn't get to shoot with them, never found out.

    Trevor, Rick & anyone interested. We are in the planning stages of a Bob Crist 60 bird memorial to be held at Melba Gun Club in Melba Idaho sometime early summer. We are waiting on the PITA & ATA schedules so we do not conflict with a local shoot. It could be a really big shoot & hopefully we will have all the "Rat Pack " guys there
