Note the emhasis on the word, "style." We looked marvelous at the Shooting Industry Masters in Califonia last weekend! We had the cool guns, too. We smoked the cowboy stages in the event! On the tough Raahauge's sporting clays course...Team Outdoor Channel — me, Gene Burkhardt from the OC, "Lefty Longridge" (cowboy World Champion Joe Alessia) and "Tupelo Flash" (ace cowboy champion, clays shooters and top Elvis impersonator Ron Stein) — came apart like cheap suits.
Despite our sartorial splendor, we were smooked by teams from USA Shooting — yes, they slipped Olympians in on us! — DPMS, Ruger, Ellet Brothers and heaven knows who else/
NOTE TO MYSELF...remember to actually hit those orange things flying through the air, as opposed to annoying them.
BTW. the S&W M&P .45 was named Handgun of the Year by the SHOOTING INDUSTRY Academy of Excellence at last weekend's event. Shotgun of the Year was the amazing titanium/carbon fiber Remington 105CTi — that's what I needed!. Crimson Trace LaserGrips were once again the High-Tech Product of the year. The complete list of winners should be up in a couple of days on the SHOOTING INDUSTRY site.
