On Saturday, Bruce and Steve shot the 28 gauge event with Brian Skeuse, owner of  Regent Chemical and Research, Inc, which owns White Flyer clay targets.  They asked Brian how many targets White Flyer produces each year, he only smiled and said the annual market in the USA is 1.2 billion targets (and White Flyer dominates the market).  So, one of the advantages of shooting in this tournament is the interesting people you have the opportunity meet.
