I have subscribed to Trap & Field for many years and the first thing I turn to when I get my new issue every month is read Mr. Hoppe's article. I have never met him but after reading "ALL" his articles, I feel I have got to know him as a shooter that talks in terms that I can understand and explains many things that I have experienced. I was lucky many years ago to take Frank Little's clinic and in many ways Mr. Hoppe mimics many of the things that Frank Little professed. I have signed up for the 2 day clinic at Slippery Rock and looking forward to meeting Mr. Hoppe a shooter/instructor that to me demonstrates his love of the sport and true willingness to help others. If any shooter can't make one of his clinics just read (REALLY READ AND UNDERSTAND) as many of his articles as you can get. Its like almost getting a clinic from him....FREE.
