I just happened to notice that both Tom Knapp and Tim Bradley are going to be putting on daily shooting exhibitions (for Team Benelli) at the NRA convention.

If you have the opportunity to see these guys shoot, I suggest you do what you can to go watch it in person - they are simply AMAZING:
Knapp holds several distinctive world records. Already the holder of two world records for hand-thrown clay targets—9 clays with a Benelli M1 Super 90 in 1993 and 8 clays with a Benelli Nova Pump in 2000—Knapp set out to do it again on October 20, 2004, and achieved the unbelievable, shooting 10 clay targets out of the air in 2.2 seconds with a ComforTech®-fitted Benelli M2 Field. He broke each target with a single shot.
Today, Tim Bradley and world-record holder Tom Knapp make up Benelli’s Super Exhibition Team. The two have been featured on a mini-series on ESPN2 Outdoors. Each two-and-a-half minute show, produced and filmed in-house by Benelli Multimedia, showed a variety of the amazing shooting techniques Bradley uses in Benelli shooting exhibitions.

With the aid of their Benelli shotguns, Tim Bradley and Tom Knapp display their incredible shooting abilities and accomplish some of the most difficult shots ever performed.
You can find some of their videos here (including some in High Def):

POLITICIANS & DIAPERS NEED TO BE CHANGED OFTEN AND FOR THE SAME REASON

A person properly schooled in right and wrong is safe with any weapon. A person with no idea of good and evil is unsafe with a knitting needle, or the cap from a ballpoint pen.

I remain pessimistic given the way BATF and the anti gun crowd have become tape worms in the guts of the Republic. - toad

I have been trying to sign up. Can't seem to get past the submission. Get a message "one moment please" and nothing else happens.

Just tried to sign up and got the same thing as Rumpshot. No indication of success or failure of the registration submission.

Huh. They've had problems with the site being hacked so its entirely possible its not working properly. In fact, there's a note on the registration page to email Bitter with your information if you can't get through.
