    Shooters that have single barrel guns with strong ejectors and pop them as far over there shoulder as they can, yes that bothers me. I have seem them hit gun racks and people watching the shoot not to mention the scorekeeper. The people who do this seem to get a high from how far they shoot the empty, kind of like the guys who blow the smoke from the barrel

    in a regular practice day I will usually catch them and put them in my back pocket, unless it's a day that I feel like smacking shells, and will pick them up after the round or so.

    If you eject them on the ground you are causing someone to clean up after you. It makes additional work for volunteer help and added costs if paid help has to do it. So yes that bothers me.

    What if you go back and help them pick up the hulls? Does that bother you as well OleTymer?

    No because i don't run the club, but it does explain to me how most, who do just leave hulls on the ground, suffer from dunlap disease--belly dunlaped over their belt--

    Our club request that you pick up your empties. Some clubs forbid picking up.

    Must be a Red State-Blue State thing.

    Many clubs have volunteer help to keep shooting costs down, when this is the case, it is especially considerate to put them in your pouch, vest etc. and but them in a refuse container when done shooting your round. The majority of volunteers are of the AARP age group and bending over picking up empy hulls with an artheretic back is no fun! Help them out when possible, someday you;ll be a volunteer with a stiff back! incinerate em!

    Hey THE UNLOADER. Who's rules? The clubs or ATA's. I don't think ATA has a rule against this practice but as others have pointed out on other threads on other subjects Club rules don't mean anything.

    Only if it triggers the voice activated trap to throw an unwanted bird. It distracts me when I'm ready to call for a bird and one flies out due to an empty hitting the concrete.

    The main problem with an empty hitting the concrete is it means your to dang drunk to get it in the trashcan!
