2013 Vintage Shotgun Championship


The inaugural America's Best Gun competition pitted the vintage L.C. Smith shooting team against the neo-classic CSMC team, with the CSMC team claiming the title. The 20-gauge HAA Title, sponsored by The Virginia Sportsman, was won by Carl Harlan of Michigan. Other winners included Rick Staples and Jeff Neumann of Kansas and Hal Hare of Ohio.

The Virginia Sportsman, along with Connecticut Shotgun Manufacturing Company (CSMC), Ithaca Gun Company and Claybuster Wads, sponsored the 2013 Vintage Shotgun Championship that took place June 27-30 at the Clinton County Farmers and Sportsmen's Club in Wilmington, Ohio. More than 200 participants attended  the four-day event, competing in the four traditional gauges.  In Addition, there were special events for exposed-hammer side-by-side shotguns, 16-gauge shotguns and light game guns. Additional side matches were offered in all gauges for the down-the-line trap and five-stand events.

The original rules used at the National Skeet Shooting Association's first World Skeet Shooting Championships in 1939 were enforced and only side-by-side or pump-action shotguns were allowed.  No superposed or semi-autos were permitted.  Vintage rules also state that the gun cannot be mounted until the target emerges from the house.  That was the way the game was shot in 1935.
