Ive shot alot at the new Izaac or down at Charles City and yes Ive met 1 or 2 of the boys you mentioned . I've heard there will not be a Great Eastern in Richmond this year . And Farmville you talking about the electricians place Robin ? If we are thinking the same person he shot some with people over at Arrowhead a few years ago , Mills and Mets .

Any of you guys go to the Grand when it was in Vandalia Ohio. It was something to see, 105 trap houses in a row, all pointed at one of the runways of the Dayton Airport. Some of the mfrs had permanent buildings there for use during the shoot. Perrazzi had a shop setup there and would build you a custom fitted shotgun.
