    English Sporting Clays World Champion for 2019, Cory Kruse!
    My niece Catherine's husband Cory has been on fire the last two years, and especially this year. He just shot against 1,100 of the worlds top shooters, and took the Championship. My BIL was watching it live when Cory won, and almost swallowed his cigar. It was held in Northbrook, Ill this year, next year it will be back in Europe.
    The first time I met Cory, he was at the Vegas Shot Show with his Dad and my BIL. He was there to sign an $80K a year contract to shoot for Browning,...and he had just turned 16!
    Cat, Cory, and Claire (the vertically challenged that uses the dog to reach the sink)

    He earned it

    Browning hasn't paid me yet, and I have a Maxus

    He shoots for Blaser now, I don't know what the numbers are, but Browning couldn't beat it, their loss. Signed on with Aguila ammo as a sponsor too. Blaser gives him a $30K "gun allowance", but they supply what ever he wants to use? The $30K made for a nice African bow hunt safari/honeymoon for him and Cat. His "day job" is managing tender ships for the offshore drilling rigs. We're all pretty proud of him.
