I wonder sometime who helped others along in their first few years? I know two who helped me a lot in the Game. I didn't realize how lucky I was at the time but ,I had the privilege of being Coached by one of the games Legends and All time GREATS. Rudy Etchen helped both my wife and I a great deal , and I gained a lot of incite from his wealth of Knowledge. By the time I met him in 1979 ,he had probably forgotten more about shooting than most will "ever" know. He wasn't about fancy tactics and theories, just straight forward helpful knowledge, and this he had learned in his many years of Championship shooting , Knowledge that he was willing to pass on to others. He helped hundreds ( if not thousands ) of shooters, and I often wonder how much that gentleman could have made if he had charged for his expertise but ,as far as I know he never got a dime for it and all his interviews in which he shared his knowledge , were given for free. --Another one I remember was dean DeBow. I met Dean when we were shooting in Western KY when we starting out in the game and had only been shooting a few years. At the time Dean was on top of his game and winning plenty in the sport . Dean took some time with me and I know he didn't have to but,he was more than willing to help others I also know he did that with a lot more people. Today he is still helping young people in the game. Not surprised because that is just how he is. Once again I don't think he ever made a dime for all his effort and time!
