Trapshooting legend Leo Harrison III dies

It’s been a rough couple of months for shotgun legends. Tom Knapp died in April, and now Leo Harrison III has followed him:

Trapshooting legend Leo Harrison III died Thursday, Aug. 22 at age 56. The longtime Federal-sponsored shooter made the Amateur Trapshooting Association’s All American team 40 times and was named All American Team Captain 12 times. He won 27 Grand American Championships, two Australian National titles and three New Zealand National titles. Harrison was inducted to the ATA Hall of Fame in 1998 and holds a World Record for breaking 992 clays out of 1,000. He will be missed as a great ambassador of the shooting sports who was always willing to donate his time to help youth and new shooters.


May he rest in peace.
