    Feel free to add your things.

    So far my #1 thing was: the infamous "Jimmy Bowen" shooting a Beretta Auto. Apparently the pair of Bowens he owns are either broke or kick tooo much.

    Those kids in the shell house building, putting together those double-decker ribs. They looked like bridgework. They were selling too.

    If you look at the photos from the Grands "of old," almost everyone shot in what we would classify as formal wear today. Maybe I could lose weight that way...

    Some people............

    The Grand American Trapshoot is a place to renew old friendships and shoot.

    So, a guy goes there to enjoy himself, take an "old girlfriend", AKA Beretta 390, to the "dance" and ya catch flak for it. Go figure. The "old girl" did just fine and its back to the gun rack.....for awhile.

    The soft shooting, target crushing Bowen will be back on the line tomorrow....and hopefully I'll be able to hold on to the 98.25 average that it helped me get. Bowen #1 that is.

    For those of you not here.......you're missing the boat. Its fantastic, the weather is good and its a great facility. And I know there's boats that leave from Arizona.

    Jimmy Bowen
