    Not an opinion - based on number of shooters. in 2004, nearly 33,000 shooters had a go at singles, less than 17,000 doubles shooters and about 28,000 handicap shooters. I doubt that much has changed since.

    If management was smart they would get rid of singles and handicap. If they would concentrate their efforts on throwing doubles targets they could throw twice as many targets and make a bigger profit. HMB

    HMB, it doesn't matter if they can be shot twice as fast if people don't want to shoot them. If gun clubs could make a lot of money throwing only doubles there would be a lot more doing it. If management is smart they throw what people want to shoot.

    People love to shoot doubles. Management usually has it as the last event of the day when people want to go home. HMB

    Some people do love to shoot doubles, including me, but many others do not shoot them. Doubles are often shot as the last event for the convince of the many shooters who skip this event.
