    Those folks have higher averages from the 27 than probably 75% of the ata does from the 16.

    Guess I'll just stay on the porch.

    One of the things I realized after looking at all these numbers over the years is that there were very few handicap shooters before the late 80's that shot an average of 94. I think the advent of the voice release is the biggest reason for the increase of scores since then.

    Jim, the change to an easier angled target helped raise the averages tremendously also! Before the rule change, no one paid any attention to the setting rule and set the easier targets to attract more shooters wanting higher averages, which you now see. Hap

    So Hap did your scores increase during the 90's? I just remember in the early 80's you had to be very alert to what was a slow pull or a fast pull and make the decision whether or not to shoot the target. Now either it comes out or it doesn't. Trapshooting is mostly timing after you have the fundamentals down and yet I still see people turning targets down with voice release. It should be called lost target. But my poing of this post was to point out to everyone that to be the best, you have to be willing to work harder than everyone else.

    Jim, even today, the best shooter's won't budge till he sees the target. It was the same thing with people pullers, anticipate and your going the wrong way! I've never shot enough to even think about being competitive in trap. Old man "ritice" hinders me and has for several years from shooting good scores.

    Your absolutely right, if you want to bake a cake, you gotta break some eggs. Shooting trap and being competitive goes hand in hand with lots of targets under your belt! I also agree, with voice releases, if it's in the air, you bought it! Hap

    Hap the reason I broght up voice release is that last year I shot at a club that the voice releases were so bad that I requested that we go to hand pull. Well the short version is, I missed one due to a slow pull and it cost me a 100 straight. My decision. It add's a huge varible to the game that is missing from today.

    What might be interesting is to see a comparison of the top shooters today and before 1980 handicap scores. Give me a list of retired shooters.

    I too would like to see pre 1980 scores. Dan Bonillas was top dog when I started shooting. Another shooter that was always high in average was Bob Gilbertson. How about B. E Morrissey? Go to it OTNOT

    Someone start a ...What ever happened to thread.

    Regards Gerald
