Our Portsmouth friend, Ray Carter, was a marksman on the 1984 Olympic team. Later he was a coach for the Olympic rifle team. Over the years he has continued to compete with SASS. We were fortunate to catch up with him at the 25th anniversary of "Winterrange" Cowboy shooting competitions this weekend in Cave Creek, Arizona.

Shooters tote their rifles, pistols, shot guns and amo from stage to stage with interesting and varied carts.
