Back in 1959 when Remington Arms Co. employed traveling salesmen who were crack shots, Tom Frye set an incredible record. The one-time highway patrol officer from Ohio shot more than 100,000 small wood blocks over the course of his two week vacation with a Remington .22. Remington didn’t want him to break the old record set in 1907 with a Winchester rifle fearing an ad war, and so ignored the accomplishment at first. But how can you not be impressed by such a shooting feat? Frye eventually moved to Billings before retiring. An exhibit honoring his feats is on display at the Yellowstone County Museum.
