George Reppas, who once owned a sporting and shooting goods store in northern California, has been active in both ATA and PITA competition.

His first major ATA victory was top honors in a preliminary handicap at the 1969 Golden West Grand. He broke 100 from 25.5 in the first half of the race and 97 from the back marker in the second half. He was the only competitor to post a perfect handicap score while shooting in windy conditions during the tournament.

At the 1972 California State Shoot, George captured the all-around title with 388X400 and AA high-over-all honors with 714X150, and he has won 13 state shoot trophies since then. Ten have been in age-group categories, including three senior vet HOA awards.

George was named to several state zone teams. He was a member of the winning zone squad at the 1977 state shoot, and his 200 tied for the singles title. Reppas also tied for the 1972 doubles crown with 96, ending with the A trophy.

George's 1969 doubles average of .9287 placed third among California shooters in that discipline. His high twin-bird average was .9476 in 1983, ranking 14th in the state that year.

Reppas served on the state board of directors in the '60s and early '70s.

He was well known for more than 40 years as a coach and instructor for any level of shooter.

Reppas has registered more than 44,000 singles, 62,000 handicap and 35,000 doubles targets during his shooting career.

George Reppas Sr. was inducted in to the California Trapshooting Hall of Fame in 2004.
