Tom Knapp in Grand Island

Today I took my 12 year old boy to see Tom Knapp at a charity event in Grand Island Nebraska. He put on a great show and my son couldn't wait to go home and break out the 410. He may be a good shot and Beneliies add man, but he is also a good steward of the whole shooting sports in U.S.A.
My hat goes off to him and his sponcers.

If you get a chance to see him in person take it. I spoke to him in person before the show. I found him very aprochable and down to earth, the kind of role model we all want for our kids. He sighned his autograph to my "NOVA", but his show and personality left a bigger impression on me than the paint on my gun. We need more folks like him in the public eye.

Too bad I live 2 1/2 hours away, that would have been cool to see.

He is a great advocate for firearms.

I wish that he would come to the Pacific Northwest sometime.

He unfortunately does not seem to stray that far from the Midwest.

I wish I'd seen him, Tom Knapp is a great role model for our sport.

I enjoy his TV shows too.

My girlfriend and I saw him when he came though Ohio the last time.

We had to drive 4 1/2 hours round trip but it was well worth it.

Ive seen him shoot here in CA not too long ago. He did well. he missed a few, but he said "I shoot over 40k rounds a year and if i hit every one that i shot at it would get boring, so sometimes a see just how close i can get without actually hitting it"... so that my excuse when i miss now.
