A L.C. Smith fella, James Deemer, sent me this pic of the 1935 Remington Shooting Stars; unfortunately not captioned. It likely also includes some Remington - Peters and DuPont executives.



I found this 1935 Remington Skeet & Trap Equipment catalog page, but it is very small and not of adequate resolution to read the names; some no doubt are in the picture.



Can anyone ID any of the "Stars"?

Didn't Remington have tv show called shooting stars, as I Remember they had a big circle And shooters had to break the bird before it left the circle.

I remember that, sort of. Wasn't there a different movie start shooting with a pro each week ? The quicker you broke a target, the more points.

Ian Peel went on to win the Silver Medal for Olympic trap in the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games. He still shoots to a very high standard.
