You better hope the team doesn't find you

Ola! Welcome to San Antonio!

What a damn shame.
You wouldn't get John Wayne's gun.

Thieves derail college team's first trip to shooting competition

A college team’s first trip to the 40th Annual Intercollegiate Clay Target Championships in San Antonio this weekend is in limbo after their equipment was stolen Thursday night.

The Texas A&M-Corpus Christi Skeet & Trap team ended their first day at the competition Thursday with dinner at a restaurant in the 6100 block of NW Loop 410. When the students returned to their vehicle, team member Brandy Mondin said, they found their vehicle had been broken into and their equipment gone.

Mondin said five guns, ammunition and a laptop totaling about $20,000 were taken.
With three days left in the competition, the team was left scrambling to find other equipment to use. According to Mondin, the team had ended their first day at the competition in 31st place.
