    Well, it actually comes from a dressage rider (the kind who ride in top hat and tails), but it applies equally well to trapshooting:

    Does this mean Martin will be showing up for the Mr. Buns Contest in dressage?

    I think the more important question is what will Martin be wearing to the Alaska state shoot, and will he wear red pumps to go with it...

    Martin needs to have a pair of Ruby Red slippers so he can click his heels together and do the "No Place Like Home " thing.

    And a blue-checkered dress. Bringing a bit of Kansas to Alaska. I think he needs bloomers to go with that. We need to cover that stuff up...

    Good friend and I started about the same time and one day when we had run about a 50 straight each, he turned to me and said "We might get pretty good at this if we don't run out of money" Boy was he ever right!!
