    I want to say thanks to all the people that ran the event. As always well run.
    I bought a Kolar at last year's State Shoot. With all that's going on I haven't had a chance to shoot much. During the tournament I learned a lot from my squad members that helped me shoot better. Brad from Kolar was on a couple of my squads. I had a great time and won some awesome stuff. Better than that I made new friends and had a great time with old friends.

    Good for you! I m glad you were able to go to your state shoot and register some birds. So how did things go with the Kolar?

    Drove down Sat for the singles event, my first State shoot. Long drive almost 3hrs & really hot. Great experience & will definitely go again next year.

    The Kolar is definitely a great gun
    Like any gun getting used to it is important
    I feel it is one of the best shotgun I have ever shot
    It was well worth the money
    Placing first in my category in 4 out of 6 events says a lot me
    Another belt buckle in the mail soon
    The Kolar made a difference

    Good for you :) as you might have noticed there are a couple of threads going where a couple a blaming poor scores on the White Flyer Black Out target so hearing that you had a positive experience is good.

    One of the guys in my group mentioned he was dusting a lot of them But not breaking them
    I told him shoot for the center and they will break
    He hit the last 5 in a row
    We all gave him a bad time
    I had the right choke Kolar 3
    AA 1250 7 1/2

    all I can say is I had several good days
    Next shoot will be zone at Kingsburg Same clay
    Then Santa Maria both end of July
    Hope I have the same good luck

    Steve,

    Congrats! You did well. I did not make it down for the shoot this year. I certainly hope to be there next year.

    Were there many vendors there? Seems like CA is a neglected state when it comes to vendor participation at the bigger events. It certainly seems that way up my end of the state.

    Not a one.
    There were one or two spectators wearing masks.

    Hey, Steve12, what's that lion's head, medallion looking trophy? That's an impressive looking Singles buckle too!
