    There has been some discussion and opinions as to what trophies should be, presented at registered shoots. Personally, I would prefer trap shells or money to most of the trophies I've won. This sure would help with expenses. Hey, maybe a few gallons of gas!

    We went to a two day shoot two weeks ago, all cash and cartridges, again last weekend cash on all events and the wife won the raffle on the Saturday (case of shells) Buddy won the raffle on the Sunday ( plastic shell fuel card) we will attend both of these annual shoots again next year.

    I am with you money and shells does it for us, have won enough Microwave ovens-toasters-pie makes-electric kettles-coloured Teles and the like, money and shells can never win enough of either.

    Release Trigger, Often wondered why A.T.A. hasn't taken this approach for trophy's. With their finances and buying ability, they should be able to get ammo very reasonable, when buying at large quantities. Don't you think?

    Yes : Forget the trophies, I know if I won or lost and do not need a reminder. I would feel much better with new factory shells to shoot or cash. Sometimes it feels like trinkets at the fair for dumping the loud mouth in the water.

    I have yet to win a belt buckle or beautiful leather shell pouch and would be tickled to death to win one! I can, however, understand that you old pros have rooms full of this stuff and would prefer something else. I certainly would not be offended to win shells! (Or anything else!!!!) Jack
