    Welcome back to the greatest game on earth. Every year I have to purchase a new shooting vest because the material that is used today shrinks while on the hanger and is to small for me each year. After shooting for 40 years, I am on the 20 yard line, have spent a shade under $400,000.00 but have won over $800.00 to date. Yes, I have had a tremendous career, and I love it.

    My singles average for my last 1000 targets is right at 95, I am a 22 yard shooter having earned four punches last target year, my doubles game sucks and I have about quit shooting them.

    Go ahead and have fun. I started in 1970, quit until 1983, and started again. Now, at age 79, I'm still shooting, Singles avg 95, 22 yds,, and doubles for fun.
    Enjoy life. You don't need a new gun, unless you really want one.

    I stopped shooting in 1980. Started shooting again in 2010 just short of my 70th birthday. Just as much fun as ever. Now that I have given up on shooting left handed (so that I can shoot with two eyes open)and gone back to righty my scores are really starting to improve. Marc

    I am 61! I have not given up the sport, but just tapered down on the amount of shooting I can do because of disease of the wallet called fundsarelow. I was out of work for six months and that really hurt. I basically stopped shooting until I got back "into the money". I am a bit better not, but learned that shot is again on the up swing with a bag costing $30+. I don't know if it economically prudent to reload or just buy wallyworld shells. Any way my average sucks, but I still enjoy the game as much as ever. I am shooting in a winter trap league and am working on my game. I hope to improve my averages to where I was back in the 80s where I had a 95.5 singles average. We shall see!If my financials are up to par, I may do some registered in the Spring.

    Good shooting to all;
