    Good job but you will even get a better feeling when you get the last 50 straight to make it an even 100.

    congrats on your first 50 strait. I still remember the first time I shot mine almost like yesterday. May you have many more. I hope you can put two of them together soon as well. Break-em all. Jeff

    Great! I just shot my first 50 last week...my hat now has a hole or two in it, but it was a great feeling. Next up is 100 (for both me and you), good luck!

    wait till you break 100 straight.

    worst feeling will be when you break 99 then fall apart for 100.

    I did that twice about a month apart last summer before I broke 100.

    Problem is... I havent broke 98 since. A bunch of 97's (not straight) but no 100's.

    That is pratice though... Can't break 96 in registered though. I can;t stop counting the losses. That damned counting just kills me and no matte how much I try to stop, the more I count.

    It like a kid with tourets. The more he trys not to cuss... the more he blurts cuss words.

    God Damned I Iove trap. Never, never has anything F'd with my mind more than the grind of a 100 bird event.

    Congrats I just recently shot my first 50 straight. Got a patch from ATA and I use winchester ammo so I e-mailed them and they sent me a set of 25 and 50 straight patches. Whiteflyer was suppose to send me a certificate but they never did. AGIN CONGRATS great shooting keep up the good work

    thanks everyone, recurvyarcher i am still doing the happy dance reguardless of who might be looking or how many people are around, and i know all about counting targets trap is a mind game its really easy until you start counting them stupid targets and thinking about things that aren't important, i kinda found a way to stop counting targets and that was right before it was my turn to repeat the keys to hitting a target, keep the head on the stock, keep your eye on target and follow through after the shot, it helped me, everytime you want to count targets just repeat those 3 steps to yourself.
