    Well it is in your joy that I regret that I am going to have to be leaving this site. It is my decision to leave as a member tracked me down, as well as my coach and made a call to him saying that I had made anti-gun statements. I had made one anti-gun statement during my duration, near the very beginning of my stay at this site and it was me saying that "I don't believe that everyone should be able to walk around with an assault weapon." This quote is not direct, I don't have the exact message, I just know it was somewhere along these lines. Well that was a few years ago now, and views have changed. I was rather naive and ignorant to the reasoning behind assault weapons, but now I know. I was also accused of name calling. It is unfortunate as that is exactly what I stay away from, and try to keep my posts and constructive as possible. Though they are typically not looked upon in a good light, I do not make personal attacks, yet that was unfortunately said. I apologize to those I offended, it was definitely not my intent.

    All in all I have learned a lot, and appreciate those who gave me encouragement, as it is all a part of my learning process in life. I also appreciate those who did not give me encouragement, but made constructive posts none the less. I wish I didn't have to leave, but it is just my decision since I have now become a bit more public, and I do not want the attention.
    Thanks to all,
    -Trappy

    Young man, winners never quit they suck it up and press on. Many people are going to disagree with you on the road through life. Don't just go away, thats what they want. You walk, they win.

    Trappy, you've got it all wrong. Someday you will see that your name on something is what makes it count - to others of course, but most of all to yourself. Please come back when you "get" that; it's been fun having you here and I hope to someday see "ex-trappy" as a poster here again.

    Trappy,
    I for one am sorry to hear of your decision. I would suggest that you rethink that decision; taking into account that one or two ignorant people should not drive you away from the site. You like all of us, have a right to your opinion and any one that can't respect that is ignorant. From reading many of your post it's easy to see that your a nice young man, the shooting sports need to encourage people like you to enjoy the sport and the freedoms that we all enjoy. Including the freedom to express a view that may be contray to a few less than inteligent people that also frequent the site. Reconsider and stand fast by your views we each have that right. This is just one of many idiots that you will come into contact with duirng your life you need to face them and stand up for what yourself. As you may remember you and I have disagreed on a few of the post over the time you've been here and that's ok it is as it should be but it has never been personal and I for one would miss your post even if you are a Cubs fan Stay with us.

    Trappy, I understand you have a free moral choice but just to let you know I have enjoyed some of our good natured jousts. I have never said anything with an intention to hurt you or cause you ill feeling and if it was taken as such I apoligize. Unfortunately some folks have to find someone to pick on, for whatever reason and this time it was you. There may be some that I would like to see go but you are not one of them. Have a WONDERFUL LIFE and join back in anytime. Your friend, Jackie B.

    Trappy12, It is with great sorrow that I say good-bye to you. If you remember I once told you when you first started on this site, that I thought you were a smart kid with alot on the ball. I still do. I have seen you make some mistakes, but we all make mistakes, and it takes a big man to admit he is wrong about something he did or said. You still have a great deal to learn!! But you will learn from your mistakes. Remember that quiters never win and winners never quit. Be sure to engage brain BEFORE putting mouth into gear (I still do that from time to time). If you have to go for now. Remember what Neil posted above. Take care and good shooting. Oh-Yeh, don't forget to Break-em all. Jeff

    First it was a "member" who tracked you down, now it's a local SCTP coach. I smell a big load of BS. If you can't stand the heat, you definitely need to stay away from the kitchen. That being said, I don't believe for one minute that you are going away- you crave the attention to much to ever do that.

    Trappy, how would leaving the forum change anything? If your as close to your coach as you say he should see forthright as to your candor. Just move forward! Just say "I'm sorry JBrooks", and move on!!

    Hey Juno, I didn't go looking for him and he owes me no apology. I just don't think he is a 16 year old kid who shoots trap. While I hardly agree with his world view, if he is legit, he has just as much right to this forum as anyone else.

    Trappy, if you want to PM me and establish that you are what you claim to be, I will be more than willing to post an apology and vouch for you should anyone else ever question your credentials. I will also promise never to disclose any details about your identity here or to any other person.

    Reconsider your statement of leaving . You have more on the ball than some will give you credit for . I`ve been handling guns since I was 14 -- 53 years ago , and what you may have stated of the assault rifles not to be in the hands of most people is true in my belief . Trap and skeet guns haven`t been on the news much but just mention an assault rifle in a crime and all gun owners are to be held responsible in the eyes of the majority . I never held or shot one and don`t intend too either . I do have plenty of shot guns and pistols . Stick with what you believe in .

    Let me get this straight - you changed your mind on the hype over semi-automatic firearms?<br>
    <br>
    Congratulations, you've just taken your first step in casting off your liberal chains. Now start doing some more thinking for yourself and start questioning what the liberals have been serving up to you in school.

    While I do believe "Trappy12" is a 16 year old kid, I can't buy into the BS that it is him typing these recent political posts all on his own. I do believe it is most likely one of his parents posting these anti-conservative rantings and their love of socialism.

    Now that their son's identity is in question they are probably retiring the handle "Trappy12" so that the "members" that searched him out leave him alone. Rest assured they haven't left TS.com nor ever plan to, they will emerge as someone else or maybe they are already one of the well known leftwing nutcases we have abusing electrons here.

    Have a nice day and shoot well Trappy :)

    Please reconsider, Trappy. While I haven't always agreed with you, I haven't always disagreed with you either.

    That is what a forum is all about.

    If you want to leave on your own, that's one thing. But if you are being driven off, that's another. Only you can decide.

    I hope you decide to stay.

    Good luck with you life!

    Hauxfan!
