    Dr. Honk--Try the new Trap Shooting USA magazine. It isn't monthly but it is very nicely done and alot of good articles instead of just Shoot scores and winners. You can even browse the articles on their website for free.

    Trapshooting USA is a great read. Good informative and interesting ariticles.
    Trap&field has gone down hill. Good if you want to see what happened in the past.

    Appears to be a great magazine!

    I viewed some of it online just now and I really liked what I saw.

    I saved the url to my favorites and when I have more time I will look at it closer.

    The only thing that I find of any value in the magazine is the upcoming shoot dates. I find the Kiner and Hoppe articles are re-hashed from previous ones, but the writer's are knowledgeable. All the rest of the articles to me are of no value.

    As a new shooter I find much of it very useful and money well spent.

    Terry's last name is Heeg. And, yes, she is very nice.

    I've enjoyed working with Terry, and Sandy (Tidwell), and Elissa (Cronk). They are all very devoted to their jobs and enjoy helping trapshooters with any information they need about the sport.

    Well , the original post was about the quality of magazine and not how warm/approachable are the people behind it.

    I am a new ATA member myself and do agree that the magazine does not have any content in it. It is more of shoot/results reporting digest.

    It's a shooter's magazine. If you don't compete or you don't care about your friends that do then maybe Better Homes and Garden would be a better choice.

    I have to agree with the fact that T&F is getting to be a poor mag. I have noticed how thin it has gottn. It taked me about 5 or so min to go through it. The sad part is when the clubs send in their ATA score it taked them 3 to 4 months to list them in the mag. But yet The Grand, Southern Grand and so on are either in the next mag or the one after.

    As always I see Bigdon the Moron is at his finest.

    Lets not make any assumptions about folks not being competitive or not caring about our friends.

    Lets be objective in our posts here, rather leting our emotions rule the keyboard. The T&F team is group of professionals producing an end project. What I and the rest of the folks here are trying to say is that the end quality of their product is not upto the mark with some of the other competing magazines. Lets keep the price point argument out for now.

    Thanks,
    JB

    I use to take shotgunsports magazine , I always liked the ALOOF guys , I think a lot of us older shooters can picture ourselves in some of those settings and drinking the strong aloof coffee..

    Buck you just have consider the source. You have an adult body with the brain of 10 yr old and a key board trying to impress somebody. Don't tell him as he thinks he is being clever. If you read what he wrote and how he wrote it you can understand the 10 yr old thing.

    Have a good day and enjoy it to the fullest.
