    This is something that I've always struggled with. Just HOW and WHY some guys/gals are so popular at any given gun club can be a curiousity. Most of the time, these people can't even shoot worth a $hit, look hidious and have poor personaly hygene.

    Any tips? What am I doing wrong??

    Post several of your cartoons around the clubhouse. Their message will foster unity among the members and lighten the overall disposition.

    Let them all know you voted for and actively support El Presidente Obama. That should do it.

    Tron.

    I don't know you and I am not suggesting that you do not do this already, but my motto is, "if you want to have a friend, you must first be a friend."

    Good luck with the club.

    It sounds like a personal problem.

    Shoot new STS shells and leave the once fired hulls for anyone who wants them.

    Ask the Skeeters if they learned to cheat from the Sporters, or if it’s just a carryover from golfing. Do this while walking around with a high rib gun.

    We have the "Don't ask, don't tell" policy with Skeeters......I just don't want to know. I don't care what they do.

    Some years ago all you had to do is dump some one fired hulls on the ground. AAs were especially liked. Damn near caused a riot after the squad finished.

    How things have changed.

    Shoot there 20 years and be 65 or older, and you'll fit right in.

    Don't be young, don't shoot well, and definetly don't ruffle any feathers by getting involved, making sure things are done right, and trying to lead the club in a positive direction.

    Maybe it's the ruffling of feathers that I have had problems with. Some great answers so far.

    Don't worry about it, The more you get involved the more you will see it is like political B. S. then you'll wish you were not involved and cannot get away. The world at one time loved a winner and that is not the case anymore so lose some more they will start to like you.
