From Kent Harris – Boise, Idaho – October 18, 2014

Hi everyone, over the years I have come into possession of a large number of PITA yearbooks (average books).  I would like to share these with fellow shooters (or gun clubs) who might need certain years to complete (or add to) their collections.

I have a large number of some years and only a few of others so it is first come – first served.  Get what you want right away.  The yearbooks are free but I would appreciate it if you would repay the postage after you get them.

Here is the list of what I have:    1960-62-63-64-65-66-67-68-69-70-71-72-73-74-75-76-77-78-79-80-81-82-83-84-85-86-87-88-89-90-91-92-93-94-95-96-97-98-99-2000-01-02-03-04-05-07-12.

I also have a few ATA average books if anyone would like them:  67-71-72-73-74-84-85-86-87-90-91-93-95-96-97-98-05.

After this is posted on the PITA site I will wait about a month, and if I still have books, I will go on to Trapshooters.com to reach a different audience.  I would like to have everything given away by the first of the year.

 I would also hope that none of these items show up on the web for sale.

 If you would like any of these items, let me know right away.  I can be reached at:

Email:  kentdeadapair@cableone.net

Regular mail:  3717 W. Custer Dr.  Boise, Idaho.  83705

Phone:  1-208-345-0711

Remember, it is first come – first served, especially on the older yearbooks.  Hope you all winter well.  Break a target for me.

Best wishes, Kent Harris.
