SHOOTING — Tom Knapp, 62, a modern shotgun virtuoso who revived exhibition shooting in the 1980s, died on April 26 in Minnesota.
Knapp, who performed in Spokane several times sponsored by Benelli, was especially notable for being the first to throw 10 clay targets in the air and blast them all before they could hit the ground.
A modern-day shooter who displayed more than a hint of Buffalo Bill’s Wild West showmanship, he also was an easy-going spokesman for the shooting sports who could let his shotgun do the talking, whether holding it upside down or above his head.
He started exhibition shooting in 1987.
In 2010, he retired after 20 years of shooting with Benelli, but he picked up again with CZ-USA.
A tip of the hat to one of the good guys.
HUNTING — A landowner just emailed me photos of three toms strutting Wednesday morning.
The were about 10 feet where I plan to be sitting with my 12 gauge over my knees when Washington's wild turkey hunting season opens Friday at 5:31 a.m.
And now I'm starting to wonder if I have everything together. License? Yep. Ammo, camo and calls? Yep. Bottle of wine for the landowner? Yep.
My shotgun is camouflaged, but if yours isn't, check out the photo above of a gun covered with Mossy Oak Graphics® new vinyl camouflage graphics. Installation is easier than ever with the industry's first pre-cut shotgun camouflage kit.
Mossy Oak says the 3M™ premium cast vinyl eliminates shrinking, bubbling and peeling associated with conventional brands. You can even buy a kit to cover your pickup.
The company says the material has an industry leading seven-year durability rating.
These are the things I'm thinking about today. To heck with work.
