Sports Shooter "Store" Inquiry

->> OK, so you guys offer a t-shirt and a hat....what about something useful like a nice Sports Shooter fleece vest for those of us in not-so-warm Southern California? You know it gets cold up here in the Northeast :0)

But a fleece vest, yes-sir-eee-grover, I can see that!

Also, maybe we can get PhotoFax to put a Sports Shooter logo on the big lens raincoats. I need to get one of those anyway.

->> Because of the popular response, I'm now thinking that we need a Sports Shooter fleece that is really a photo vest that doesn't look like a photo vest. It will be the Sport Shooter fleece non-photo vest. It will keep warm things warm and cold things cold (kind of like the McDLT). A pocket to keep beverages cold for Mike Morones, another pocket for Doug Holleman's Speedo/camera strap, and a piece of velcro to stick the Sports Shooter chimp on your back. Any thoughts?

->> Gosen...you are absolutely KILLING me. Go back to grading papers and leave me alone.

We will take all suggestions into account and decide what I need to spend my own hard-earned money on next to stock the store.

What about sweatshirts? We are really reading all the posts and once I get real rich (which won't happen if there is a baseball strike or lockout) I will be looking to invest in some more high quality items with the Sports Shooter logo on them.

Gosen- howabout a productive suggestion for a change? Thanks.

In case you guys don't realize it- I am kidding...really- Joe can take it.

Just my 2¢.

I think the answer is
http://www.cafepress.com
You can upload the logo and sell caps, mousepads, bucket hats, etc...
There would be no need to stock on spec. Cafepress just produces the item as people order.

I told the person questioning me it was an arm of the NRA, he said "right on!" and moved on.

I fully support your right to carry a gun. I poke fun of everyone and every organization. I just could not believe this guy thought Sports Shooter was a hunting thing, when I was clearly standing there with my cameras aimed at the field.

I'm not a fan of using guns, I prefer using cameras. If I was using guns I'd stick with the Glock 19, nice weapon, well balanced, fits nicely in a leg holster, clip never jams......but I won't go into how I know.

Urbana | IL | USA | Posted: 10:45 PM on 09.02.02
->> Okay . . . here is my idea for new sports shooter product . . . knee pads. The right one would have the word "Sports" and the left "Shooter" just the thing for NFL games and cold northern football games! I'm think lime green tiger stripes on the elastic and logo on each pad under the words. Okay, so now you know why I shoot sports and not fashion.

Seriously. Count me in for the vest. Tan with interior pockets to keep batteries warm. I'm not sure I want the monkey - got too many on my back as it is =)

Steve - some target shooters like to refer to themselves as "Sports Shooters". The dude probably thought you were in to shooting holes into harmless targets.

David G. thanks for the tip on cafepress.

Ah well. We'll have to be content to be a 'secret society' of sorts. (lol)
