    Hap,

    Great insight!

    I hadn't thought of that.

    I'm taking mine at the first shoot I make this year.

    The ECs intent was to make shooters more competitive with this gift! Ed, those turning it down are in for a tough row to hoe, southernly speaking? This year is going to be a very different handicap year for sure!!

    OK I have been hearing of and reading about this 2 yard reduction thing and gave it some serious thought over the past few days.The concensous by most is they dont believe the EC has thought this through and that it will make a mess of things. BUT most shooters will take the reduction because it's there and if they dont they will be shooting next to someone who has taken it. That's all well and good BUT here is the $100,000.00 question, How satisfied, or dis-satisfied will shooters be when an 18 yard shooter wins $10,000.00 at a State shoot or the top prizes at a Sattelite Grand OR the $100,000.00 (thank you Bill & Leann Martin) at The Grand American? After hearing the opinions on the reductions from many shooters here and abroad. The crying and belly aching will be heard around the world !!!

    Just my observation on the subject

    Take your 2 or 3 yard reduction and be happy. Shoot a lot of Big 50s and you might be able to get another yard off by the time the Grand rolls around. Just think, shooting from the 19 yard line for the big money, it doesn't get any better than that. Thank you ATA. HMB

    Everybody's situation is different... I use registered targets as a training aid to gauge the progress of my practice... and I don't play options when I register, so why would I want a couple yard reduction from 21 -> 19, while I am still improving my average at 21... I refused the reduction...

    I got 2 punches on my card one from last year and one from this year, and I will refuse any reduction, I don't want and I dont need it. Woody Sullivan

    I heard about this last night but I haven't seen my 2yd reduction.

    IS everyone getting a 2yd reduction or is just for some people that need the 2 yards?
