We usually have about 12 to 18 pistol shooters from Connecticut shoot the Nationals at Camp Perry each year. The pistol matches are usually fired the 2nd week of July followed by smallbore rifle and highpower rifle. Muzzleloaders preceed pistol. The matchs start in July and run into August. There are groups of shooters from CT who participate in smallbore and highpower. I'll see if I can dig up some more Camp Perry pictures

Here's a picture of the firing line at Camp Perry. There are 400 firing points arranged in four 100 firing point lines. The gentleman with the blue hat and Hawaiian shirt is gunsmith Ed Masaki.

Here's a picture of the Connecticut Team scoring targets.

I have more pictures but I'll have to scan them in when I get time.

That's a Ruger Old Army in stainless steel. It's a fun gun to shoot but I haven't had time to shoot it in years. It makes a lot of smoke and noise. I was shooting it at Blue Trail one time and I had people comming down from the other end of the range to see what I was shooting.
