    For the ATA 99%er

    I am a member of trap shootings 99%. I shoot trap, but have not yet made it to the All American level. I have shot the game for more than 30 years but have not really put in the practice time and study to be the best. I also probably do not have the skills to really get there either. However, I now feel that I should be paid by the very successful trap shooters for trying. It isn't fair that those shooters who have worked harder, have studied the game, have better equipment and are stronger and more skilled should win often and take all the prize money. They should pay for my shooting, buy me new equipment and pay me some of their winnings. The whole system should be changed to accommodate people like me!! Let's occupy a trap club and demand that those who are better at what they do pay for us who aren't as good.

    Whining should get us something, like media attention and sympathy.

    Only thing wrong with that analogy is that in trap there are options. I keep giving over 30% of my paycheck, not optional.! Dan from Wis.

    If you don't want to be handicapped then don't shoot handicap.

    Of course, our dear friend Rick Barker either has reading comprehension issues or undiagnosed others. I just happen to have shot more AA averages than he has averages.

    I suppose you can aquire various ailments from too much exposure to rarified CO. air.

    Good luck on the 19 1/2. I'd love to join you there. Maybe you could petition the ATA and explain to them why they shouldn't have given me a three yard reduction this year and I really deserve six.

    Pour soul!!

    rmclaysports, Well said! I applaud you. Goes right along with fixing the broken handi-cap system. It's only broken for the whiners or is it spelled wieners? My spell check seems to be broken! :)

    To all the liberal retards out there, this should look familiar, its what
    the Big Eared, Muslim Loving Shit Head of yours is doing to the country. Taking from those that work for it, to give to those that refuse to work and just sit around on their asses and collect "Free" money from the gov't.

    So I worked two jobs including managing a small business, was President of a little 1,200 member multi-purpose gun club, put one son on 4 All-American teams and developed one wife into one of the finest lady shooters in the country.

    And your list of accomplishments include what!!

    "rmclaysports" - So, let me get this straight - you have been keeping score? Why can't you just shoot and enjoy the birds? The friendships? The smell of the gunpowder? When I shoot, everyone tells me how wonderful I shoot. That my sportsmanship is second to none. That I'm the best at moving from post to post. Who cares about scores? I'm a winner! (Actually, I don't use loaded shells yet, but everyone says I would have hit the birds anyway.) ;)

    Barker I think it's time to shut up. Rip the dawg but leave his wife and sons out of this. By the way if you think 4 1/2 yds are nothing then try it. Your name calling shows great maturity by the way.
