    We recently had a trapshoot at Southgate Gun Club (Lavinia, TN). Here is a picture I put together of one of my buddies shooting his Model 12.

    Thanks for the compliments, guys. It's easy to make decent pictures of friends that love to shoot shotguns. Hey BigM-Perazzi, that is what I call the "Patented Jerry Hatchett Empty Shell Shuck".Ha!!! Jerry loves Model 12's and knows how to shoot them as well.

    Thanks Ed, well of course he hit the target. We "Tennesseans" always hit the target, don't you know?Ha!!! I just didn't get a picture of the target breaking (will try to do better next time).

    Yvonne, if I'm ever in Massachusetts, I'll be more than happy to take pictures of you shooting.

    What the heck..........Are you sure this guy is a real trap shooter, and not an imposter?

    The reason I ask, is that everyone knows trapshooters have big belly's and this guy doesn't have one. Maybe he's just a wannabe trapshooter. lol lol

    Hey Hauxfan,

    Yeah, he's a real trapshooter, he's just like myself, he doesn't get to shoot near as often as he would like. Maybe the hunger from not being able to shoot enough is keeping the weight off.Ha!!!

    Hey Foghorn,

    Yes, I remember meeting you a couple of years ago. Best I remember, alot of the guys I shoot with call you "Roho". Yes, Southgate has been having a small number of registered shoots for the last couple of years. June 16th. is the last one that E.V. has scheduled for this year. Come on down and shoot with us, I'm sure you will see some guys you haven't talked to in a long time.

    The montage is simple to do. Just pick out one picture for the main image and resize the additional images and paste them to the main using just about any kind of photo imaging software.

    If you come to Southgate in June, I'll take some pictures of you wearing out those targets and make a montage for you. Be sure and bring that "Skunk Grade" Model 12 with you. Talk to you later.

    Frank
