Coalfield Shooters Association (CSA) members now have a brand new, automatic trap machine to use in their monthly trap matches.
Members of the association traveled to Southridge to pick up the new machine at a greatly reduced price, thanks to the generosity of Cabela’s, on Thursday, September 20.
Cabela’s also donated three nice shooting vests, at a retail price of $99 each, two boxes of clays, and sold the club a Do-All automatic trap at cost.
“The $350 Do-All thrower cost the club only $220, so the CSA received well over $600 of goods for far less than half of that price,” said CSA member Jim Morrison. “This new automatic trap machine will replace the failing manually operated thrower the club has been using. The hand operated machine, lent to the club by Roger Ramey, wasn’t designed for the workload we place on it, and it just started coming apart, so this new automatic unit will serve our purpose much better.”
Chris Walls, Cabela’s Marketing Manager who is originally from McDowell County, worked closely with the CSA to make all this happen.
“We think it’s great you’ve (CSA) brought the shooting sport to this part of the state because it is something nobody else is doing,” said Walls.
