    Fairness in Trap Shooting, No, it should read The Death of Trapshooting.


    We should first define Fairness. That being free from bias,or dishonesty.
    Or to be proper under the rules. Fair and Square.

    Next we should attempt to define Trap. Lets see how about these, Trap a
    contrivance used for taking game or animals. A pitfall or snare. A device of
    sorts to catch one unaware. (It certainly does that) Enticement of the
    unassuming. Enticement of the unassuming, I like that definition, its fits
    most Trap shooters or does that imply ignorance. Iam not sure, I think its
    ignorance.

    The Game of Trap, by the name alone suggests and is loaded with ambiguity.
    But wait,wait, we have the ATA rule book, almost forgot about that little
    bity rule book, the ATA rule book set-up to define, clarify, correct and
    interpert, ah yes, difficult to read (tiny print) but loaded with information.
    All to create a level playing field, a guide to set targets and follow the
    rules. But than, how sad, the more I think about it, the little rule book
    rarely seen at shoots, that tiny tiny rule book, the guide that no one follows,
    subject to interpretationj by all, and it is, thats Ambiigous also, by design.

    Mercy on them,

    It doesn't matter what the ATA does it has little effect on 90-95% of the trapshooters and clubs in this country. Just my observation. JRM
