    Am I glad that the weather literally shined on us and allowed me to enjoy a relaxed and friendly introduction to the Hartford Gun Club and skeet shooting. As usual, Raffaele, through his hard work, saw to it that the event was well organized in every detail. We all had the opportunity to meet new members and through the friendly instruction of Hartford Club members and our own Bill G. we were introduced to the safe enjoyment of the sports of trap and skeet shooting. I had a great time.

We had a great group of people and were able to mingle and chat. Then there was the food!!!!!!! Raffeale realy did a nice job with lunch he realy put a lot into this day for everyone.......

    Very nice range. The staff was wonderful. Everyone had a great time. I shot better than I have ever shot before. Now I just have to figure out what I was doing right so i can do it again. Thanks as always Raffaele for putting this together with your beautiful and helpful assistant Cindy.

    Actually Karen, I at least, wasn't referring to you lol... It was rather, a reference to someone's good aim. But I'll have rear body armor on.
