Who Is That Man in the White Hat

This is the first of a series of interviews documenting West Virginia shooters and their accomplishments. Our sport is evolving, competing with a myriad of other activities, with declining participation, and the rising cost of targets and shells, etc. I thought it would be interesting to get the shooters thoughts on the “Old Days” and new shooters perspective as well, so look for upcoming interviews.
