Has anyone ever heard of an exhibition shooter named Paul La Crosse? He also went by the name Mr. Winchester.

I'm shooting in the dark here, pun intended, but was he the one that traveled around to county fairs and community picnics, box socials and such back in the 1950's doing exhibition shooting with Model 12 and 42 shotguns. Drove a big car towing a trailer loaded with equipment. During the summer he had a son with him, boy about 10 or so, who also did some shooting.
I may be way off on this.

That's right, been a long time. Saw Herb P. once and have watched old films of him and his son. I miss him.
