Denny Chapman at Gander Mountain!

Denny's mounted shooting firearms sponsor, Taylor's & Co, sent him to Gander Mountain in Ocala FL to make an appearance for their "re-grand opening" today. The shoppers were suprised to see one of Denny's horses, "Spanky", greeting them right in the front lobby! "The Pistolero", Deke Rivers, also entertained the crowd with his fancy gun handling and whip artistry. Denny will be at the Amarillo National Center, Amarillo TX, Tuesday through Saturday, providing announcing, color commentary and hosting video interviews during the Cowboy Mounted Shooting World Championships.
