    The GRAND AMERICAN HANDICAP should be shot from the max yardage, the 26 yards and less would just be a yardage win.

    Any shooter who wants to compete for the GRAND AMERICAN HANDICAP

    This wouldn't be fair for shooters who have not honed their skills to justify putting them all the way back. That's why it's called a handicap just like in golf. It allows everyone to compete fairly against each other. Just my 2cents. Joe

    It's also bullsh!t the 16 yard event is shot from the 16 yard line. All future 16 yard singles events should be required to be shot from the 19 yard line.

    The more posts I read by this jerk, the higher his stupidity goes. I don't think he has any concept of the meaning of handicap shooting. Where does he get this crap from???? .Woody Sullivan

    In golf tournaments, they have a winner for gross score and net score (with handicap). Much more prestigeous to win with the gross score. Let the big dogs play for the big money all the way back. Call it what you want, I'd watch. Mark

    This is what they do in the Golf U.S. Open...everything is played from scratch. Of course nobody but the professionals have a real chance of winning either.

    I think Dr. Dongshort MEANT to say that the Grand American Handicap should be shot from the 27 yard line by everybody but 27 yard shooters, who would have to shoot from the 30 to 35 yard line, depending on how fast their superfast handicap shells were, how many patterns high their guns shoot, and their known-ability, as divined by Dr. Dongshort - the guy who knows just about everything about nothing.

    You ever get the feeling that maybe Dr. Longlips only has one blade on his propeller?

    dr gary,s idea is sure to increase participation for the grand american hdcp.mention this to your ata delegate gary so he can get the ball rolling.surely this will lead to the good dr, telling all the non 27 yard shooters that have won the grand american hdcp that their wins mean less than those who have won from the 27. much like his feelings that those who have achieved their grand slam on 2 hole targets are lesser shooters than those who did it on the 3 hole targets.go get,m gary . your ideas are are sure to make you new friends & influence people. dwain

    Just when you think he has said the dumbest thing you have ever heard, he trumps himself with something even dumber. Kids this(Dr.Longshot) is your brain on drugs. Just say no.....

    If you really believe this please come to the
    Pacific North West and shoot some games with us.
    You will need to take lessons from BobHoulkOregon
    first. You could not carry his shells as it stands.

    I've been a member of several private country clubs in golf the club champion always is the winner of the championship flight the others are just winners of there flight. His concept is not that far off !!!!

    I try to stay out of the Dr's posts because I feel it is fine for everyone here to express their opinion.

    But lately with the advertising for a gal and the frequent off the wall ideas I am starting to wonder if the man should have access to firearms.

    Honestly, if you look at the evidence, in effect his posts here, you could make a case for him being a bit unbased.

    It used to be fun and games with his ideas, now I am just starting to feel pity.
