    Hi Calvin
    It will be a while until it's warm enough for trap shooting.

    That being said I would hope to make the Inland Empire, May 16-19 in Spokane Washington.

    I don't worry to much about the winners circle. I am just there for a good time.

    Looks like Spokane on Feb 2nd for me. Guess that may not be a "big" shoot, but fun anyway! First "big" Shoot will probably be Camas Prairie.

    Same old guns Calvin nothing new planned in that regard.

    I'll start out the year in March at several weekend ATA shoots in the region leading up to the Delaware St. in May. Then my usual schedule: Colonial/PA State, Maryland St, Virginia St, WVA St, Eastern Zone, Grand Am., and finish with the MSSA Fall Hcp, Westy Hogan and VA Old Dominion.


    About 10k targets or so.


    I'm ready--I really don't like shooting in the winter.

    The Gauteng North Standard Championships, to be held at Centurion Gun Club, near Swartkop Air Force Base, about half way between Johannesburg and Pretoria, in Gauteng Province in South Africa.

    In two weeks.

    About a 25 minute drive from home.

    The Spring Grand at Tucson, Arizona. I like shooting with my friends, Gene Hapney, Phil and Nate Simms, of ProSoft fame. Plus seeing my other friends and talking about bird dogs and bird hunting.

    I'm sorta hanging on a limb myself...got the new Guerini to sort out but the fallback Brownings always at the ready...still the health issues though..not sure if I will ever be up to going 4 squads in a row without my heart taking a dump...50 targets and I need to sit, so I think spectating and socializing just to be out with friends might be more on my agenda

    As far as big shoots go, it's usually the Keystone Open at Elysburg.

    The first shoot I can shoot at will be a "big" one for me. Hope to get a few hundred targets shot before I get a new knee late this spring.

    Missouri State Shoot, May 13-19, 2013. About a 2 hr drive from my home. No new guns. In fact I probably should sell my Browning X-T and just keep my MX-8!! (Probably won't sell it however, just conversation--LOL).
