What is the best trophy you ever won. I never won it but the one that I remember was a 5ft. Trophy that was in the middle of the Club House and you got your name engraved on it for winning the State Shoot.

No doubt about it, winning a buckle never gets old. Buckles, bags or money - why waste time or money on anything else for the wife to stick in the attic?

No hardware yet for winning in trap, though I did just win my first HOA Champion, got some money, but the memory of this first accomplishment in shooting will last as long as any trophy in my trophy room from my other hobbies.

The only good thing about a trophy is the check that comes with it. Most of us shoot for fun but covering your cost makes it more fun. Very few people make money but if you can have fun for free or only a small cost thats great

Third place, Prelim Thursday, 1977 Grand, first year there. 97 from the 24-1/2. One 98 and six of us with 97, shot off in front of the main grandstand.

Missed target #12, hard right from 5, and #23,shot down the right side of a straight away. You think I don't shoot those two over in my head now and then? lol

Still have the silverware under the bar downstairs.

2000, The lone 25 at the Warren Klinger Memorial Pigeon shoot, VV Gun club.

3259 shooters at the Trap shoot and around 90 at the flyer shoot. Tough to call which one was more exciting.

Won A new TMS Perazzi in 1983 in a handicap event it had fancy wood and some engraving on it.
It was listed for a lot more than I sold it for but I shot it a couple of months and didn't like it so I had a cousin to take it to the grand and told him bring me 3,000 back im sure he made some on it also but I got what I wanted for it.

Winning a new car at a Las Vegas car shoot in handicap. Most used/useful trophy I've ever won was at my first ATA shoot in 70, a set of loading scales, still using them today. Gold piece belt buckles along with other coin buckles are special trophy's, hard to come by too! Hap
