    I don't see the point. Our club is small space wise and there are many times a money or Annie shooter will miss a hard right and a shooter on the practice trap will get a hard left and get both of the birds. It's comical but it don't mean nothing beyond that.

    To answer your question - "etiquette" would seem to demand that "Annie" shooters not distract remaining shooters on the practice squad. I would consider the miss and subsequent shot "bad manners" to the shooter "on-deck".

    It is only practice, practice means nothing compared to a registered.

    This happens in doubles at many clubs all the time - and these are registered targets. As long as your annie game does not involve changing yardage I have no no issue with it.

    If you are shooting trap on two adjacent fields and the birds are trespassing on the adjoining fields, your traps must not be correctly set, or your fields are not spaced far enough apart. It is rather common to have the high house bird from a left hand adjacent skeet field trespass on an adjacent field if it isn't broken. Etiquette; playing Annie Oakley; who ever heard of such a terrible offense.

    The Annie Oakley shooters have the right of way and can shoot your pratice targets but you cannot and must not shoot their targets even if they are missed ... This is a "Man Law" and is universal the world over, I'm appauled that no one else has heard of this ... No wonder the Annie Oakley shoots are dropping off in attendence ... WPT ... (YAC) ... (former Annie Fanatic)

    yuck, yuck, yuck ...

    If ya'll are any good at shootin at all it wont be a problem cause the birds will never have a chance to make it to another field.

    This is really more of a legal question. We had this sort of thing happen at out club and we asked a few lawyers. Their answer was if someone would get hurt or killed when this was going on the club would be in the wrong and they could not win a lawsuit for the injury. Glenn

    I agree with the statement..."IF IT FLYS, IT DIES"..if you miss it, then fair game! However, my club does not throw registered targets. Our five stand is off to the left of the trap field..Trap Wobble, and Five stand birds OFTEN fly together...Our shooter stations are separated by a concrete fence, and the trap field is about 6 ft lower (side sloping hill) than the Five Stand..totally safe!.We also have RSO's at both fields entire time shooting is happening, just to keep an eye out..Check out www.P2Krange.com...(San Diego, Ca)..lb
