Does this 100 straight count?

    I shoot at a local trap club. For the last four trips to the club, I have shot one round of 25 per week. During each round I shot 25 straight. So, I have shot 100 straight with out missing a target over a three week period. Does this count for a 100 straight or do I need to do it all in one day?

    In your local club it might. But, in the ATA it doesn't. If I still shot at a local club I would have 125 staight, but my best as far as the ATA counts is still 75. Close but no cigar.

    You can get a patch for it, but, it's not a recognized ATA straight....

    Bud who cares what the ATA says about what is or isn't a 100 straight. You shot 100 targets in a row, without missing. That is the deffinition of a 100 straight! Congrats!

    Yeah, I kinda figured it didn't count. The best I have shot is 75 straight at one time. It just kind of snuck up on me this past week. Never the less, it is nice when things come together...

    Don't worry...your 100 straight all at once is coming soon. Just keep stringin' 'em together.

    I actually shot a 100 straight at the North East Grand in 2008 and it was consecutive but did not count because it was in 2 sessions of the 200 target event 24 25 25 25 then 25 24 24 25. Bummer eh no patch for me :-( . I'm still hunting for that elusive 100 straight.

    I would count it if I was you, but you really need to shoot more than 25 a day to get a 100 straight in a day!! lol

    good shooting!!

    It's no matter that it's "official" or not. In your head it is a very positive thing. You now know that you can do it so you'll do it again and soon. Don't put pressure on yourself, just stay smooth. Good Luck.

    HELL YES. It counts for you and don't let anyone take it away. You weren't shooting ATA, just club stuff. You did not miss one in 100 targets. Brag a little, what does it matter to anyone except you?

    Good shooting, good job.

    In registered Shooting be it ATA or PITA members of both organizations pay a association fee which is used to provide 100 straight pins for its registered members. In neither organization are shoot off targets recognize even though shoot offs may go to 500 targets or more in the sixteens. Breaking 100 targets in concession at practice is not the same as breaking 100 straight targets in competetion with registered birds. Some vendor may give you a patch or a gun club may give you a pin just for the asking but it is in no way the same. You have shown you have the physical ability to break 100 over a period of days so that should provide you with the confidence to shoot some registerd targets under the pressure of competition. Good luck and good shooting. Post-2

    So... if I drop target #6/100 but run the next 90 and miss target #98/100 for 98/100, do I get a 75 straight in ATA?! Just asking...

    regards,

    Jay
