World Side-by-Side Championships
Yes, that's an Ithaca 12 bore NID....that has been professionally modified for up close an personal bunny blasting and a woodcock hunting in thick cover (no kidding the stubby barrels were finished off quite nicely and it even has dual bead sights). The owner saw I was fascinated by it and keep bringing it by our booth. Needless to say he still owns it as I like a bit more barrel length on my doubles but it did take a nice picture.
For those of you who could not make the show...Here are some pictures to show what you missed. (Try to ignore the bad flash photography...lighting was less then ideal and my lens was constantly wet or fogged. Also, I did not venture to bring the camera to the shooting areas which were soaked and deep with mud)
Pintail Point Venue was largely under water this year and most shooters could have used at minimum hip waders and at certain times full scuba gear! I did snap a few caps on the stalking rifle course once again. Honestly, if it were not for shooters like me the other shooters would not realize how good they really are. I took the 28 bore Darne out on the clays course too....at least there weren't many people watching me miss targets...;-) It was challenging to shoot between the monsoon like rains which came and went all weekend.
