Shooting USA - Irlene Mandrell Celebrity Shoot
We're seeing stars at the annual Irlene Mandrell Celebrity Shoot.
Her game is sporting clays. Irlene Mandrell is the youngest of the Mandrell sisters and is a recognized country music star. And Irlene has been using her celebrity status, and her sport, for many years to raise money for charity. Most recently at the Seven Springs Resort just outside Pittsburgh.
In the winter, Seven Springs is the Western Pennsylvania Mecca for skiers and snow boarders. It’s a winter wonderland in Pennsylvania’s high country. And Seven Springs is growing into a summer resort as well. The newest attraction is a world class sporting clays course finished just in time for Irlene’s celebrity shoot.
More than 200 shooters have signed up for a sporting clays fundraiser benefiting Irlene’s selected charities, The Boy Scouts of America and Wish Upon a Star, a group granting the wishes of terminally ill children. The participants are matched up with a celebrity for two rounds of clays over two days of competition, with the funds generated going to the charities.

They simply updated the Mauser 98 to be the 98K that’s now one of History’s Guns.
