    SGT Hancock

    Just thought I would share a close up of the USAMU's latest hardware. SGT Hancock is taking a few well deserved leave days but if anyone has any questions for him about his gun/equipment/experience etc. I can easily ask him for you.

    Good luck to everyone in Sparta, I wish I was there...

    Vincent we are so proud of you for what you have accomplished. Better yet you represent your country in the most honorable way.

    Hope to see you at one of the sporting clays shoots soon.

    Well I would nap a quick shot of his setup for you but he took his gun with him on leave. Thats the kind of competitor he is, going to get some practice in while he's at his folks house on vacation......

    He's shooting a Beretta DT10, Beretta chokes .0015 both barrels, 28", custom grip German Ergosion (sp?), Winchester AA #9, Pilla eyewear, team vests (USA Shooting & USAMU) by Shoot the Moon.

    I would like to know how many practice rounds he shot per week in this last year leading to the Olympics.

    The specs on his gun would be neat too. How high does it shoot?

    Remember, it is the Indian and not the arrow.

    And a good bow would help the Archer put the arrow in the same spot time after time.

    If the Indians had a couple more winchester 1873-86's instead of those damn bows....

    UtahYork, I'll have to get a photo of the back when he comes back to work next week.

    Setterman, same thing, I'll ask him next week but the guys here in the office are guessing 1000-1250/week this year.

    His gun has got to shoot pretty flat because he doesn't even get it up all the way to his face when he mounts. I'll try and get a shot of that as well to show you what I mean.

    Our bows usually stem from whatever our parents put in our hands when we were young. When you do this for a job the main issue is whether the bow can handle the amount of arrows you put through it year after year...

    A shot of Hancock's mount. It is very light, he doesn't mash his face into the stock like many of us Trapshooters do....

    He agreed with the 1000-1250/week guesstament.

    The "light" mount that Jeff Holguin is favored by many of the top sporting clays shooters. Hancock is also a master class sporting clays shooter.
    With the light mount the stock just touches the stock, often the lower part of the cheek close to the jaw. Gebben Miles, the current World FITASC champion
    uses that mount.

    Hi Jeff,

    As a former USAMU member (1968-69 & 70), please give Vince my congratulations for his accomplishment. If he should happen to make it to the SHOTSHOW in January, I would like to invite him to be my guest at the Clark County Shooting Complex. We have field #3 set up for International Skeet should he be so inclined!
