A great guy I've been observing at the Oregon shoot.

This guy is one of the true gentlemen of airgun shooting sports. An accomplished marksman, and experienced FT shooter, yet he spent most of the weekend tirelessly helping out at the Western States Regional Championship, rather than competing!

Sadly he has been soured from AAFTA competition, when he was treated pretty poorly by some previous AAFTA board members, and prefers to not participate in the shooting itself anymore, yet he drove 16 hours round trip to help out with the signins, collections, and other organizational duties, thus taking a huge load off the Match director.

I am so impressed by the professionalism and generosity of this fine individual I'm truly humbled.

his name is Jim Benson.

Thanks Jim.
