This article presents information on the Nevada Paralyzed Veterans of America (PVA) Trapshoot that was held on October 14-15, 2005 at the Las Vegas Gun Club. The Las Vegas shoot offered the standard 100 Singles, 50 pair of Doubles, and 100 targets from Handicap yardage. Although the thermometer registered temps in the upper eighties, shooters did not have to contend with the gale-force winds they faced in Sioux Falls in September. As a result, scores were considerably higher in Nevada. Five-man teams represented Southeastern, Cal Diego, Colonial, North Central, and Nevada PVA chapters. Despite only 33 points separating first and third places, Southeastern PVA continued to dominate the Team competition. In second was Cal-Diego with 1,344. Colonial broke 1,328 birds to take third place.
