    What it seems like for the slow shooter on your squad to go through his shooting routine.

    I had one of those for my squad on the 200 singles this week. And Eric is spot on.

    I assume, though I could be wrong, that you want to show an analogy about how much money a trillion dollars are.

    At $30 per month to feed a hungry child, a trillion dollars could feed 278 million children for 10 years.

    Doug is correct, given that on average there are 365.25 days per year (remember Leap Year). If one uses a more precise calculation for leap years, on average there are 365.2425 days per year, so the number of years would be 31,688.74 years.

    The more precise calculation: In the Gregorian calendar a year is a Leap Year if it is divisible by 4 (example 2012), unless it is divisible by 100. Then it is a Leap Year only if it is divisible by 400. So for example, 2000 was a leap year, but 1800, 1900, and 2100 are not. So in a 400 year period, there are 97=3*24+1 Leap Years, and 303 non-Leap Years, for a total of 146,097=303*365+97*366 days. 146/097/400=365.2425

    Look at it this way.
    While laying on my back under a shade tree I was gazing at the blue sky and white clouds. Then I said GOD how long is a trillion seconds. GOD said to me about as long as a minute. Then I said go how much is a trillion dollars. GOD said to me about as much as a penny. Then I said GOD could I have a penny. GODS answer was, give me a minute. Wild Bill

    to eric, the literalist and ricky I say PATIENCE! IT IS A VIRTUE. What's your hurry? You are on the Trap Line to enjoy yourself are you not? Detemined and purposeful shooters are the coming thing. Didn't you know that? I would guess all of you to be at 60 or better.

    Moetack,

    I have no problem in letting the turtles, snails and creepy crawlers of trapshooting squad together. The rest of us like a nice predictable cadence and age has nothing to do with it.

    Glad to see a few recognize significant figures are significant along with some facts about our keeping of time.

    How long would it take me to shoot a trillion birds if I start tomorrow and I'm sixty years old?

    If you have a trillion dollars that needs to be spent, instead of having it take 31,430 years, you could give it to a member of Congress and it'd be gone by the time they were again up for re-election, or you could give it to my ex-wife in which case it would be gone by lunch time.
