Retired Winchester Western Rep Don Sutton sent me the news about Jack Eller. We had the pleasure of pulling for him at the Pinehurst Gun Club. When Dan Johnson moved to Lexington we had the pleasure of seeing Jack again at the Rowan County Gun Club. He surely will be missed.....
He registered 60,900 singles - 41,200 handicap and 28,500 doubles. He registered his last 100 handicap targets in 2003.
