    My 12 year old shot his first 25 straight at Fox Valley gun club in Oshkosh last night. He shot it in the club's 2 man winter league. He's been hammering lately but has always just fallen a little short. The best part is the hug i got after he was done. And the smile on his face. Priceless

    Congrats to the both of you!!! May you both see many, many more straits in the future as well. On a Interesting side note, I shot my first round of clay targets in Oshkosh about 40 years ago now. It was a very historic event from my past. Congrats again. break em all Jeff

    Congratulations!! Not priceless. Your son will continue to shoot so he will need a Perrazzi. Then you will need to reload for him and you. Clothing, glasses, travel time with him and family, new trophy case, interview with reporters, Colorado and qualifying for the U. S. Olympic Team... Not priceless, but worth every penney. Fred

    He got the 25 patch and he doesn't like to wear a hat. So it's something for us to work on. I'm very proud of both my kids. I also have a daughter that's pretty good too. There good kids and they like to go shooting with mom and dad still. So you can see i spend a lot of time making shot and reloading. And it doesn't bother my one bit. When i can spend time with my family it's worth every penny.
