    Congratulations. On a bad day you will have to think back and know that you can do it again. I haven't gotten past fifty straight myself but will keep trying. I long for the day that straights will be commonplace but haven't arrived yet. Here's hoping you reach your goal shortly. Again, congratulations. Jackie B.

    huntinfool, Congrats on your very first strait!!! This milestone is something that you will never forget, so take the time to enjoy it. I hope you had your favorite dinner, and everything was just so. I hope they shot many big holes in your favorite hat, as that is a trophy as well. Now then head down and eyes on target and get that 50. Break-em all. Jeff

    Feels good, doesn't it? I made my first 25 and 50 the same day, but still have to break 75.

    Grats on your first 25. My first 25 was all that it took to get me hooked for life.

    Congratulations! Also, congrats on the 39!! I can't tell you how many times I've seen someone shoot a 25 straight then miss the first bird on the next trap.

    I was in his squad when Huntinfool broke his first 25 last night and I he wouldn't let us shoot his hat. So much for tradition.

    huntinfool, sounds like to me to owe it to some people at your club to shoot your hat. Its fun for them and you get a trophy out of the deal. Then next time a new shooter gets their first 25 or more you can enjoy shootin their hat all to pieces as well. Remember what comes around goes around. Let them shoot your hat or you'll be sorry later down the road. Mark my words. Now Breakl-em all. Jeff

    Congrats man, I thought I'd pass out on my first one from the concentration on my last 5 or so targets. I've made it to a 47 straight but can't seem to make that darn 50 due to my mind finally getting the better of me.

    Let em shoot your hat too, mine hangs on top of my reloading machine when not in use. It's all in good fun.
