As we come to the close of another summer of shooting here in Indiana, I hope everyone has achieved the goals that you set for yourself. I know I am already looking forward to next year and trying to set some new goals for myself as well as meeting some old goals I didn’t meet this past year. One thing I will be able to do this winter is catch up on reading all of my Trap and Field magazines that I didn’t have time to read this past summer. The winter also gives me time to reload a lot of shells and be ready to shoot when spring arrives.
I would like to congratulate the Indiana shooters who won trophies at the Heartland Grand.
I want to remind everyone if you would like to shoot this winter, most gun clubs are open for practice or shooting games. This is a good way to stay sharp for the coming summer. If nothing else, get your gun out and put it up to your shoulder 100 times every day or so. This helps to keep your arms and shoulders in shape through the cold months.
I hope everyone will have a wonderful Thanksgiving and remember to be thankful for the freedom we enjoy everyday. Also let’s remember our service men and women who are away from their families this Thanksgiving fighting for our freedom.
