Bryant Wallizer got swept up in his own version of March Madness. The West Virginia University redshirt junior stood at the line. He shot. He scored. And the Mountaineers won the NCAA national championship. No, it wasn't a dream. WVU lost in the first round of the NCAA men's basketball tournament, but Wallizer and the Mountaineers went all the way and pulled a mild upset to win the national rifle championship at Texas Christian University. Wallizer helped anchor WVU's huge second-day comeback with bull's-eyes on 51 of his 60 shots in the air rifle half of the competition on March 14 to lead the Mountaineers' climb from sixth place to the title.

Long shot: Man finds rifle his dad used in Korea DAVISON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - As gifts go, Jim Richardson's choice for his father's 79th birthday was a long shot. Virgil Richardson fondly remembered the .30-caliber M1 Garand rifle he carried during his time as a soldier during the Korean War. He even still had the weapon's serial number. Using that number, Jim Richardson went online and found the firearm at a Kentucky gun broker. "I couldn't even talk when he gave it to me," Virgil Richardson told The Flint Journal.

To the editor: Just as Kentucky and Tennessee had their Daniel Boon and Davy Crockett, Maryland had its Meshach Browning. Meshach's life remains somewhat unique because all his hunting adventures and life were centered in one area - Western Maryland. Hunting to Meshach was both a profession and hobby. With his flintlock rifle (on display at the Smithsonian in Washington) and hunting knife, Meshach harvested, by his own estimates, close to 2,000 deer, 400 bears, 50 cougars and panthers, and scores of wolves.
