    Epilog to my earlier thread.

    Back fencers are good shots.

    Trapshooting is fun.

    No big dog will ever prevent me from signing in for a shoot. Unless Leo physically stands in my way. LOL

    Trapshooting is fun.

    The rulebook is fine just the way it is.

    Posting on TS.com is fun.

    The ATA is not perfect but it is pretty good.

    Skeet shooters are fun to tease.

    No big dog will ever win a dime of my added money.

    Shooting doubles is fun because you get to reload twice as many shells.

    No big dog will ever beat me for a class B trophy.

    Trapshooting is fun.

    Most trapshooters are scholars and gentlemen.

    Trolling for Bob Lawless is hilarious but as sportsmen we must remember to practice catch and release.

    Trapshooting is fun.

    "No big dog will ever beat me for a class B trophy."

    That's probably true but I lost a Class A trophy to a big dog once - and it was the runner-up trophy to boot!

    Skeet nis short yardage trap shooting with different angles.
    Now they got thig thing called 5-stand that looks like good trap practice, but don't be fooled. It is a conspiracy, a game devised to humble and screw up the mind of good trap shooters. All should beware!

    Now Now ladies, skeet is an excellent discipline in it's own right as is trap, cough cough, and let me say, not for the faint hearted. It's just that trap is just too easy, that's why there are so many shooting it. Now skeet that is a mans game.
    Regards Clutey.

    Whoa another troller. Is this pond big enough for the both of us? LOL

    That means laugh out loud. I am trying to be funny. Make a joke. Present humor. Please get it.

    The saying if you can't run with the big dogs stay on the porch, well I have not stayed on the porch, but seem to be always trailing the big dogs, but it is fun to be with the crowd.

    I used to watch the big dogs shoot at Vandalia whether it was the Grand or the Ohio Stae Shoot, trying to pick up shooting tips, Watching Britt Robinson was always my favorite, boy could he shoot fast, I got to watch the following, and shot with a few of them.

    Britt Robinson, Dan Orlich, Larry Gravestock, Bueford Bailey, Dan Bonillas, Ray Stafford, Brad Dysinger, Leo Harrison, Vic Reindeers, Hiram Bradley, Louie Morgan, and others, you could tell when they were shooting, always a big crowd on the walk-way.

    I picked up pointers and have used and modified some of them to shoot my style
    the best thing was a higher POI which came naturally to me.

    Have been on the back fence for 35+years, never refused a reduction, took them and earned it right back.

    I am a firm believer in mandatory yardage reductions, if you don't have the average you do not belong there.
