Default Kim Rhode is NOT going to the Tokyo Games!!!!

BUMMER!!!

Laughter erupts from the other end of the phone line. It is not what one expects to hear from Kim Rhode.

“I know,” she said. “I lot of people thought I’d be crying.”

Those people know Rhode as an Olympian of historic proportions, a skeet shooter who won medals at six consecutive Summer Games. Her streak came to a shocking end Sunday when she failed to make the American team headed for Tokyo.

I wonder if there is any connection to the CA ammunition laws that make it more difficult to purchase practice ammunition in CA?

Doubtful. Range sales are exempt from the background BS - provided you use it all AT the range per the PC.

An olympic shooter probably doesnt have to buy ammo, her sponsors likely furnish it by the pallet to her range of choice.

She probably has a sponsor that drops of a pallet of ammo every month.

Already talking about it in the circles behind it as a given.

South by Southwest SXSW canceled on Monday, and Goldenvoice has moved Coachella to October.
