... Most recently, at the Northern NJ Zone State Trap Shooting Championship in May, he took first place in the A-class doubles and veteran (over 65) singles categories.His record of success has even caused Roman to be a bit jaded. “I’ve got a closet full of trophies,” he said. “When I first started out, that meant something. I’ve won state championships, local championships, regional championships…. Maybe at 66 my perspective has changed.
Roman also introduces us in passing to another Jewish Marksman at his club, Artie Goodman:
Roman also said, “You’d be surprised at the number of Jewish shooters.” He pointed out a few men on the range and identified them as such, calling over one elderly gentleman, 80-year-old Artie Goodman, a West Orange resident. Roman calls Goodman “the oldest living Jew shooting.” He took up shotguns when tennis elbow prevented him from shooting target pistols.
Mazal tov to Roman and Artie!
