Early Days

The page has some classic shots from the 1983 U.S. IPSC National Championship, when the relatively unknown Rob Leatham rocked the house. (He continues to do so to this day.) As both total unknowns – Rob won the National Championship and I finished second. Rob recently won the IPSC Standard Division World Championship. [08.27.05]

Check out the distance on that Z-Combo!
How could I hit anything that far away?
(Now it looks like it’s “Weaver time.”)

Me and the “Tommy-gun” in the most innovative
shoot-off ever. (I’m lookin’ fairly “upright”—or,
can you say—Mr. Tension?)

The Great One himself, preparing to kick some
butt in the shoot-off.

I’ve “evolved” since this photo—these days
I can give Robbie a big hug and say things
like—”I love you man!”
