Shotguns...


"What like guns that fire shot..." (Name the movie...)

Sorry for the lack of posts - work and some domestic duties have kept me from posting here - which is inexcusable because Jay Carillo has been kicking ass and taking names in a number of shotgun & 3-Gun tournaments!

At the Nordic Components Tactical Shotgun Championship, JC finished 4th in Semi-Auto behind pro-3Gunners like Mark Hanish (FN), Rob Romero (Noveske), and James Cassanova (Noveske).


Fast forward to Gateway 3-Gun's latest match where JC finished 2nd in TacOptics, 86% of James Cassanova's score... 


Lastly, Tony Altero, an avid shotgunner and former Collegiate clay competitor headed down to "The Grand" in Sparta, IL...

When we headed down for the IDPA Wounded Warrior match a year ago, I asked Tony why Sparta had miles of skeet and trap fields. He said that for the last ~100 years they been shooting "The Grand American Trapshooting Competition" which draws up to 3,000 competitors a day! Wow!*

While he was down there, he snapped a few pictures of the ammunition room - now I know where all the powder has gone!


(*If only USPSA had that much draw!)

One of these days, I get out there with the scattergun ...
