    A shooter I know plans to shoot every state shoot before he ends his shooting career. I'm curious how many state shoots you have attended and shot? Ben

    So far I have shot Virginia, West Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania, Florida, Tennessee, Arkansas, Kansas,Colorado, Montana, Ohio, Oklahoma and Texas. This year, it does not look like my list will get longer. I wish we could add more weeks to May, June and July and take out a few weeks from December, January and February.

    In this crowd, I'm a raw amateur. I've shot in the Pennsylvania (the biggest), Virginia (they have Pat), Delaware (they have Curt), New Jersey (got to shoot at skeeters), Maryland (really miss Thurmont) and Connecticut (best background ever) state shoots. But I did shoot on a squad with Jim Brown in New Jersey - that's even better than staying at a Holiday Inn Express!

    Jerry- I have shot the Southern Zone in Kentucky several times but I have not shot the KY State shoot. I do know where the Crawdad holes are at the club. The KY and the VA State are always on the same date. I would like to shoot Indiana but the time between Spring and the Grand just does not have enough weekends and I have to work sometime. Could you convince me to retire when we get to visit at the Southern Grand in 4 weeks?

    Pat...you have to get alaska in. I'm offering you half price targets (paid for out of my own pocket) if the temps aren't above 60 during the shoot. See the "got my Trap and Field" thread...

    Jeff- You just don't understand. A few weeks ago I shot in Florida and a couple of days it only made it into the low 60's. I had to wear an undershirt, a long sleeve shirt and a sweat shirt on those cold days. Now, if you could promise me temperatures in the mid 90's with at least 80% humidity, I could get very interested.

    G-12.

    I have not attended as many state shoots as some but have attended, Ohio State, Iowa State (7 times), PA. State, Virginia State (Hi Pat), The Grand (9 times), KCTA Anniverary shoot (4 times), plus a couple of small shoots in Janesville and Sauk Prairie Wisconsin, Freeport Illinois, Greenville PA.

    The down side is I have a 24-30 hour Flight from Australia to shoot with all my American shooting buddies, and with the wifes permission and god willing will be over this year for KCTA and then onto Sparta.

    I have been very fortunate and met some fantastic people along the way, at least this year our Dollar is the strongest it has been against the Greenback for the last 15 years.

    Pat,

    That's gonna be mighty hard to promise you...I think the 'all time' high for Anchorage is somplace around 86.

    How about if we set up one of those kerosene heaters like they have on the sideline at NFL games and blow hot air on you? Could you survive it then?

    If you want "warm" weather, come on out to Kingsburg for the California State Shoot. You won't be disappointed!

    Last year, I shot these state shoots: Maryland, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Alabama, Virginia, West Virginia, and Kansas. I will try to get to some more this year.

    Would have made the Alaska state shoot last year, had it not been for the hip. Also, the thought of seeing Jeff P. in a dress kinda scared me...
