All Time Rifle Champ- Adolph Toepperwein [FONT=Arial, Verdana][SIZE=+2]All Time Rifle Champ (An Excerpt)[/SIZE][/FONT] By Charles Askins, Jr. American Rifleman, June 1950 ...A short time later-in 1894 to be exact-a long hungry six-foot Texan came drifting up out of Mexico. He had been down there with a circus for almost a year putting on rifle and pistol shooting exhibitions. Without fanfare or publicity the six-footer broke 955 out of 1,000 clay discs, 2 1/4 inches in diameter. This was in no way a record unless the mere fact that the shooting at clay discs constituted the establishment of a record. It is probably more worthy of note for the fact that this Texan went on to become the greatest shooter the world has ever known.
