Mike & Dorianna Dobson
Former Calhoun resident and retired state trooper Mike Dobson, who now resides in
Rome, has been competing for 16 months – and has already proven to be a top
contender in the sport. His fastest time is 0.231, shooting from a distance of
eight feet at a 14-inch square target.
He owes much of his success with fast draw to Cartersville Booth Museum Director of
Special Projects Jim Dunham and longtime gunfighter Dennis “Smiley” Walton of
Tennessee. These two gentlemen really love this sport and don’t want to see it
die out. Both are members of the Rusty Guns Fast Draw Club, out of
Dobson's 12-year-old daughter, Dorianna, is also the women’s Ohio Fast Draw Association Southern Division Top Gun Champion for 2008.
C.W. Barrett Jr., owner of the Barrett’s Gun Store here, sponsors three contests in
Calhoun each year - two in April and one in October.
