    They compared Olympic swimming pools, Tennis Courts, Football Fields, and they all measured the same, then came the Golf Courses, always different, in distance, sand traps, bends, water hazards, they made those courses harder.

    And we make TRAPSHOOTING EASIER FOR HIGH AVERAGES AND PERFECT SCORES.

    We let them DUMB up this SPORT, strictly for what? And for who?

    It is time we take this SPORT back to the way it is supposed to be.

    Max Shell shell limit on speed 1200 fps, targets 3 hole, minimum of 44 degree angles, and distance of 50-52 yards.

    Target height 10 ft minimum 10 yards from the level of the trap arm.

    You go to the racetrack all horses carry the same weight.

    Let's get this sport back the way it was and should be.

    Buy as expensive gun as you want and drive the most expensive motor home or the most expensive car in the parking lot.

    Just GIT ER DONE.

    I have to agree. They are doing the same thing as the school systems.

    They are lowering the standards so the dumb little lazy brats can grad but at the same taking the rest of the good smart students with them.

    I agree with Dr Longshot. When I started you had those hard targets and you learned to shoot those targets. If they want to keep this sport alive get rid of the sandbaggers. Bring back proper trophies and get rid of those unwanted trophies. In other words bring back the pride that was once in the sport.

    Shooting at a target. It's not a sport, it's a game, like darts bowling and golf. Bird hunting is a sport. Just my .02. gyrine

    No, no, we have to make it easier so more new shooters will come. If you leave it they wont hit as much and go home and not come back. Lee

    Gary,

    I would like to know one thing please.

    If these changes are made, would you get back to shooting the number of reg., targets you used to shoot years ago?

    Thank you for your answer,

    Matt Nicol
