The West Texas Sportsman’s Club, (later named Abilene Gun Club and then Abilene Clay Sports) newly formed club Board of Directors in 1958 determined that club needed a day-to-day manager. One of the locals that was an active skeet shooter was Abilene sportsman Dan Daniels. Dan could be seen most weekends at the club wearing his trademark brown shooting vest emblazoned with “D and D Guns”, a local gun store that he operated. The Board decided that Dan was a great choice to handle the daily operations of the club and handle the registered NSSA and ATA shoots. Dan decided to cease the operation of his gun store and be the clubs full time manager. By all accounts, the relationship between Dan and the club was excellent, and his operational skills and personality was credited with the growth the club experienced of the next few years. Shown here is Dan Daniels, along with his personal shooting vest that he wore at the club. The "Guns” portion of his vest embroidery was removed when he closed the business and became then full time club manager. Dan’s vest is from my personal collection.
