    The challenge of recruiting and retention of trapshooters is nothing new - it was a concern in 1912 and brought out the opinions of industry leaders and an iconic trapshooting personality...

    enjoy!

    I've seen 1000's of shooters come and go through my 37 years of trapshooting. Most because, when they start they see Sugar Plum's in their natural ability. Then they find out it takes years and lots of money to be any good----then they quit. There may be some other reasons, but they represent less than 10% in my opinion.

    Wow you mean its not because the grand moved to sparta like the boys from Ohio say, and then they put Jeff Wagner in. And we went to softer targets too, that is a real deal killer also. I am totally shocked. Thanks Stan

    I love the early opposition of class shooting at club shoots....to avoid sand bagging. Here I thought it was strictly a modern concept. Lol. Very neat article though. Thanks for sharing.
