AP shooter Barry Turner attended the Autumn Satellite Grand American at the Tucson Trap and Skeet Club in early November. Barry reports that this year’s shoot was a lot of fun with great weather and nice targets. The shoot also marks Barry’s graduation to competing as an ATA Senior Veteran. Barry first shot in Tucson Trap and Skeet Club some 42 years ago and reports that he has seen the club evolve from a small volunteer led operation into a very sophisticated, professionally run enterprise. Barry also considers the club a premiere shooting facility in North America and highly recommends their shoots. For Barry’s full shoot report check out the Atlantic Province’s APTA Abroad section on our webpage.
