    We were lucky enough to have Tom Knapp come to Old Colony Sportsmens Club. What a show it was!!! He looks great ~ good performance ~ the club members and their guests really enjoyed seeing him. Tom was such a gentleman thru-out the whole day. He posed for EVERY picture everyone asked him to pose in. He held everyones attention and answered every question. Tom involved the youngters in his show and had them participate in the show. He signed autographs, hats, clay targets. I'm going to download some pictures this weekend to show you all. What a great day!!

    Tom puts on a terrific show but he is expensive. $5k + expenses for one performance.

    I don't believe that Tom is officially associated with either company anymore.

    Tom Knapp is a business man and did not show up at the club because he had nothing else to do ... He was there to make money which is why he poses for pictures, and signs things or he will never be invited back at any price ... That reality, get some ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

    Tom had to shoot some type of shotgun and use some brand of shotgun shells to put on his show. Just asking what equipment he used and was he promoting any particular guns/products?

    Doubleauto,

    If you click the hotlink above you'll see that he's wearing a Bennelli hat & holding a Benelli gun.

    What cool thing, Tom Knapp performs at your club.

    I'm envious and hope to see his show live someday.

    Tom Knapp is a shooting professional. $5K seems reasonable for an appearance.

    A-Rod gets $45K, per at-bat.

    Beretta and Benelli were both there and he was shooting Federal ammunition. He was sponsered by a club member's employer. Everyone had a great time and it was a pleasure to meet him and see his show. I put his website addy for you to click on if you'd like any information. You can also contact him at:
