I 2nd Dean's sentiment. I haven't had that much fun in............well, I can't remember.

To begin with, glad you could make it to the shoot Edgar and also sharing your old photos and map of Meriden. Really interesting stuff! Lugging the big 5 frame is not so bad when you have electric powered carts driving you, ammo, and guns around.... Our squad consisted of Chris T, Chris' cousin, Mike from the Fox Collectors, Edgar, and myself. We didn't keep score.... just good people getting together to burn some powder, have a some laughs, and enjoy the day Mother Nature granted us this past weekend.

Halfway through the course, panic set in when we noticed the plug from Chris' Jostam pad came out on his newly acquired 34" DHE straight grip. Sure enough, Edgar, confident where he thought he saw it last still on the gun, recovered it from the third station in the dirt under the gun rack.

Anyway.... here are some pics with the few I took with the camera.

First pic - Chris T and Mike from the AH Fox Collectors Assoc.
Second pic - Edgar and Dave
Third pic - Chris' cousin shooting a gun with funny looking barrels....
Fourth and fifth pics - Chris T pulverizing some clays with his 34" DH
Last pic - Mike from the AHFCA cleaning the station with his Fox Sterlingworth.

I'm really glad to learn that Chris got his pad plug back. Good work Edgar!!

Chris, I would not change that pad. It is a very unusual Jostam pad that I'm certain must be original. Put that plug back in with a bit of adhesive and shoot the daylights out of it! That is a wonderful competition Parker.

BTW, that was one tough station!!
