The first meeting between Lones Wigger and Hap Rocketto in May of 1965 at the Third US International Rifle Championship at Parks range, Fort Benning, GA. The 28 year old Wigger was fresh off of his 1964 Gold medal performance at the Tokyo Olympics while 18 year old Rocketto was hoping he might scrape by in physics and graduate from high school. It was predicted that by the time 30 years had passed Wigger would become the greatest rifleman of the 20th century while Rocketto, if he were lucky, would be 48. The prophets were correct on both counts.
