    Anyone know how the shell inventory is at Tucson for the Spring Grand ? Would hate to fly out there and no shells available.

    Earl, Tucson T&S will have more than enough new shells for this and even more shoots.

    Zard, I gotta wait n see (feel) what the old neck/back says I can do. I'd love to shoot every target thrown if not for that lil irritating fact? I did shoot them all at year before lasts Autumn G. with the help of pain pills. I'm still not over that stupid mistake today! Looking forward to seeing you my friend!

    Okay, I called Tucson this morning and they told me they had a few boxes of Federal 8.5 shot. They had some Remington and Estate shells(7.5 shot). I called Sportsmans Warehouse and they have NO shells.

    I just got off the phone with Doug Sims a few minutes ago. He said he just received several pallets of new shells and even more are on the way.

    It's entirely possible he won't have every flavor of loads ascoss the spectrum of new shells but more than enough to hold a good shoot! If B&P is your monthly flavor, you probably should bring em.

    Shells have been in short supply in Tucson , I saw skids of shells being delivered today. They are being delivered daily. No one is trying to confuse you. I have been there everyday just lately and they had me confused.
    Hap & doug Sims are very truthful. See you in Tucson. The guy with the question about light 8's , There is new staff on the telephone . Next time you call first ask does 2 plus 2 = 4 , then go from there.
    There is a fellow at the practise ticket counter with a handle on the shells.
    He has no phone.!!!! He had Top Gun light 8s at 12:00 Noon today. He does have a credit card machine and provides you with a Tucson Target Card.
    Tucson has tried its best to resolve the shell issue.
    See you in Tucson !!!
