    I shot more than ever. More skeet, more trap, and more sporting clays.

    I shot more; but I don't count. I am a new shooter (third year) and still full of piss and vinegar.

    When I get like the old pharts that shoot 0-2 rounds and spend their time playing cards I will lament how shooting has dropped off and the good old days are gone. I will tell the guys who support the club "They are killing this sport. Ammo used to be $80 a flat for the good stuff and you could get 11 rounds with a $40 shoot ticket. How can the club/sport survive when costs are out of sight"

    Should be another 10-15 years before that happens - I hope.

    Interesting question. I checked the Shooter Information center, and my records for ATA targets the last five years are:

    2004 - 4900

    2005 - 8500

    2006 - 6900

    2007 - 7000

    2008 - 7000

    So the last three years I've been pretty much the same, but I suspect my totals will be down for 2009. One reason is that I likely won't be going to the SW Grand this year, where I've gone the last five.

    I shot a lot less registered trap, but a little more sporting clays this year.

    I shot WAY less this past registered shooting season, primarily due to a reduction in discretionary income. My employer chose to hire "lower-wage ; no benefits" people to perform the majority of work that used to be overtime for us. The result was a loss of nearly 20K from the previous year.

    I guess that has become the way of the world, but it certainly caused me to re-think my priorities. I have never shot ALOT of targets, but I went from 6300 registered birds in 2007 to 2600 in the 2008 target year.

    18,000 registered for me thus far in 2008. However, that was when I was retired and living in the South. 2009 looks like 3 or 4 thousand working again in the cold Midwest. At least I'll save some $$.

    I too looked up my previous amount of targets:

    '08 2000 singles 1600 hdcp

    '07 1600 singles 1700 hdcp

    '06 1400 singles 1400 hdcp

    '05 700 singles 700 hdcp

    '04 1100 singles 1000 hdcp

    I guess I can technically say that I'm shooting a bit more registered targets (plus alot more sporting clays this winter) but not all that much more. I don't have much time during the shooting season to get out to other clubs since I'm busy running our club. Only 4 Sat. nights off from May to Oct. in '08. I'm glad to have shot as many targets as I did in '08. Maybe more in '09!
