Results from "try it" at Gunsmoke
« on: September 18, 2017, 07:38:34 AM »
This past Thursday, the side match day at the Midwest Regional Gunsmoke, Shell Stuffer and I held a "try Wild Bunch" stage for those that always wanted to, but have never had the opportunity.   We had nearly 60 shooters, "try it"!    WOW, it was great to see their smiling faces after shooting a stoked '97 of Mod. 12 and usually 2 full 7 round mags of .45 ACP.  Over 800 rounds of .45's and over 300 12 ga. shotshells were expended down range.   I think it's safe to say we "set the hook" in a couple of folks.  Big thanks to the Gunsmoke committee for letting us do this.

Happy Jack

Thank y'all for the positive representation that y'all provided for the sport.
