Previously inducted into the California Trapshooting
Hall of Fame, the late George Reppas will join the
ranks of PITA Hall of Fame in 2009.
Respected and admired by shooters, his
accomplishments are numerous. He was known as the
“weekend warrior” to many for his determination and
persistence in shooting. His devotion to his family
and business didn’t always allow him to compete in
every shoot, but his records in singles and doubles
show his great talent.
Not only did George succeed in shooting, he also
devoted time to coaching and to mentoring many
shooters. He coached Scout troops, new and novice
shooters and hunters. He was always available to
answer questions, to solve shooting problems, to
look at a gun fit and vertical setups, and never
asked for payment.
An inspiration to many shooters who may have given
up because they were new or just starting in their
middle years, George was always there to support,
provide patience for those who were struggling.
A few of George’s accomplishments:
Shoot over 100,000 targets
PITA All Star – 5 years

To be admired for wins and also for selfless
devotion to the sport, George Reppas will be
remembered as a champion in all areas.
