For many years the well known Texas benchrest shooter, Turk Takano, maintained a benchrest photo web site Wildshot.net. (Actually Turk gave credit to his son for much of this enjoyable site). Anyhoo, Turk is reopening the site at the address www.benchshot.com . This new site is under construction and hopefully Turk will have time to bring back a lot of old memories. At the current site I especially like photo #22 of 24 on the Super Shoot 2002 year.

There is a lot that can be learned from studying these old photos. For example, how NOT to set wind flags and even videos of how NOT to set up a rail.

Thanks Turk

Here is another way to search the site: http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://www.wildshot.net

www.archive.org is pretty handy for web pages from the past, but are no longer updated or are dead.

There must be more rail guns in Texas than any other state.
