    Great story. But every time I hear or read the words Camp Perry I have to kick myself. Prior to my joining the department, the pistol team shot bullseye and had six or seven Camp Perry accurized Gold Cups. And I didn't have the money to buy one when they sold them.

    I hope you get the opportunity.......
    I shot in the DCM and NRA High Power Matches numerous times back years ago...
    Since I have taken up ATA Trapshooting I have been able to attend the Grand American Trap Shoot several times and hope to again this year. If I took the time to develop a bucket list, going back to Camp Perry, if for no other reason just to see it again, would be on it. I still have my High Power shooting "stuff" but nort sure my body and eyes could do it. Perry has changed a lot since the last time I attended. Still a lot of history and tradition there.
    I know what having the opportunity to attend those "World Series - Super Bowl" type events in my shooting sports meant to me, unforgettable. For any shooter who greatly enjoys their shooting discipline, attending those type events is just hard to describe.
