    Thad, have you looked into the PVA? The above link might be worth your time. Check out the photo galleries to see what PVA shoots look like.

    I've been to a couple of their shoots in Green Bay, Wisconsin. They had about 150 shooters at the last one, and about half of the guys were chair shooters. Nice folks, worthy cause and everybody has a great time. I look forward to the next one.

    I see they have a couple of shoots in the south. There's one at Silver Dollar in Odessa, Florida in early March just before the Southern Grand, and another at Hephzlbah, GA in April (not sure it's not a typo on their website).

    Send me a PM if you're interested and I'll put you in touch with someone active in the PVA.

    Take a look at most recent Trap & Field. Phil Kiner, who is a chair shooter broke 99 from the 27yd. line at a shoot in FLA.

    go to PVA.org

    look for shooting sports

    bring up 15th circuit

    and see all the dates and locations of the shoots for the 2011 circuit (15th).

    Contact Andy Mc Donald at PVA in Washington D.C. and he can tell you if there is a chapter near you.

    It was not Phil Kiner but Morrie S who shot the 99 in FL

    Captain bud hit the nail on the head. Check out the P.V.A. at pva.org They put on several shoots all over the country and are a great bunch of people to shoot with. If you ever want to spend a couple days talking to, and shooting with some amazing Guys go to one of their shoots, they are open to everyone and You would be amazed at the level of competition. If you want to shoot competition and have an enjoyable,humbling experience, try to attend one of their shoots, You will not regret it. Just be ready to have some FUN, and for the $$$$ you can't beat the programs.

    Andy Mcdonald does a great job promoting these shoots and always has a super nice staff running them, (just watch out for Hilda hehehe)and there are always great prizes and food for everyone.

    One of the best, heads up, wheel chair or not, James Foster, from Texas. If many of you don't know, Jim has been in the VA hospital since June. He will be moving to rehab sometime this month. We look forward to having him back competeing in the near future. Jim is an inspiration to anyone who thinks their life is hard. Jimmy Borum
