    Dick, how is that even possible? That's approx 300 per week for 50 YEARS!

    How do you guys have these ridiculous counts of registered targets plus who knows how many practice targets? I am trying to do this a hobby, but that only means Sunday morning at the range for 100 or so, and that's if I can make it. For any more I would need to take time off work so I just don't get it.

    Vpr80...Well, I started in 1958...Guess that is a shade over 50 years...Not shooting that much now, but did a lot in my younger years...You can check it out on the shooter information...By the way, there are others with many more targets.

    I just don't understand where everyone gets that much time to go to the range, I assume, at least 2 to 3 times per week CONSISTENTLY!

    I know Dick Betz and he does in fact shoot that much. Generally speaking, he and a squad of friends shoot registered targets whenever thrown at the Silver Dollar. I have personally shot with him- he is a gentleman and a good shooter (several 100's shot).

    Above is a link to the Shooter Information Center. Type in a name and targets and averages are there, broken down by year.

    47,500 since 1999. I hope to pick up the pace soon. Bill Malcolm

    FloridaTrapper do you shoot as many marathons now as you did before you went on loan.

    By the way does Ashley Jones still shoot? If he is still shooting he must be in the millions for lifetime targets.

    48,500 Handicap

    31,150 Dbls

    This years overall average was just barely under 95

    I am happy with that. And for the record.....I started shooting in 95. What with 4 kids to bring up it was tough to shoot before then.

    I think that's before Helena's 800 targets in Sept. Still haven't gotten a report on what was paid out, so I doubt they have sent the report in.

    Bill a few years back he used to come to our annual Marathon. The only trouble we had trying to satisfy him was we couldn't get enough participants to shoot with him so he could get all the targets he wanted for that day.

    You would ask him how many he wanted to shoot and he would say I'll start with a thousand!!!!! He has to be getting up there in age also. If he hadn't slowed down he would be in the millions. Thanks for the information Bill.

    Tony Olivito who passed away a few years ago had over a million and one hundred thousand. His shooting partner Jerry Burkhart has now far exceeded that. Olivito shot an 870 Rem. and did get some sponsoring from them.
    On holiday weekends I watched them shoot in 3 days 2 thousand or more for the weekend. Bulge.

    My good friend Don has a total of 276,000. I have a bit more than 100,000 more than he does, but he shoots better than I do. Something is wrong.
