    Does anyone have an idea of how many registered targets are shot at each year?

    Would be interesting to know this year's figure vs. years past such as the 1980's/early 90's when trap was at its peak.

    ATA should know but I've never seen it published.

    It would also be interesting to know how these numbers compare to the number of targets manufactured. Is it only the registered target shooting that has declined. This seems to be the trend in our area.
