Old West RV Park: Sharp-Shooting Owner

We stopped for the night at The Old West RV Park. The owner, Jim Brandt, goes the extra mile for travelers. When we checked in he gave us an autographed DVD of himself shooting. Then that evening he put on a show for his guests. It was like being in the Old West. He is an amazing shot with his Ruger Vaquero. He dresses the part and he provided us with ear plugs.
