    Tom ... I'm actually thinking of taking Brets class later this spring but need your honest opinion on something first. I know that 2 days is far better than 1 day but with the expenses of our sport and such would you say day 1 or day 2 would be better if you were only to take 1 day of clinic with him?

    I have done a couple of things with Bret. Both a 2 day as well I spent a couple of days with him in Texas in 2006.

    Sportshot

    Typically we shoot somewhere near 200 targets a day. Cost is $250 a day plus targets. Targets are at our normal member rate so figure about $40-50 per day. Taping something like this is nearly impossible.

    Suggest you both dig out of the snow and come down.

    Tom ... have no snow on the ground now and Bret will be giving a class within 25 miles of me later this year ... so why not come on up and take same advance classes after you get done with him in Feb? :)))

    I think it has something to do with some apology for someone in San Diego verifying that somebody years ago shot 2 perfect rounds of bunker with a single shot trap gun ... but the person who said he remembers that it happened had no idea of who the person was and the person who supposedly did it originally had no idea of anyones name that could actually verify it.

    Somebody said it was done once and who knows if this person heard about it and wants to take credit for it since there was never any names mentioned or what but I think he is looking for some sort of apology for people who doubted him ... I would have and at this point its now after the fact ... I would only believe it if both parties had remembered names.

    Oh yea.... this is the one where my BS meter broke. Now I remember. There ain't no way some walk on with a single barrel can shoot a 50 straight. If someone really trust worthy said it happen I would still question the bunker set up. Were the targets up to speed? Properly set etc? This game is way TOO tough for such a thing to happen.

    Hatshooter...

    The weather can be nice or not so nice. Typically we get 65-75 degree days during February. Come on down. If not for the clinic then for the Southeast Regional Shoot that weekend.

    Lumper...

    Would be pleased to take note however it will cost you $250 per day. Why don't you come on down and do the notes for yourself.

    Tom

    Tom ... $250 for a day vs. less than that for a day in April 25 or so miles away from me ... yeah Florida would be nice and getting a chance to shoot with Walt, Macy and you would be nice as well but ... well ... even if Walt were to give me a big wet smoochie on the cheek it still not quite worth it ... if ya know what I mean. ;-)

    Ok... here is the deal... I will pay you $100 for a 25 in the single barrel final of any shoot you enter in this country this year.

    All you have to do is show up and do it.
