    Just When I

    I like to pull the trigger. Just ask Tron. 250 skeet targets Thursday, another 200 sporting & skeet Saturday...."Coming back tomorrow?" "Yep." Annual pilgrimages to Argentina. 8500 shells in 3 1/2 days. Been chasing it hard for a number of years.

    Then age started happening. I was having recoil issues due to a shoulder injury. 1600 rounds a month did not help. It hurt. I flinched. I took a break...several months. Came back slow with the little pop guns. Worked back into the 12 ga. gas gun. So far so good...shot about 400 practice targets last week. The registered shoot was yesterday.

    I turned in what I thought was a fair performance. Recoil started to eat at me towards the end. I'm beginning to wonder if my 12 ga. days are over.

    Turn on the computer today. Turns it out was good enough for 4 punches and beat a big name by one target.

    Why do I do this????? The only winning move is to not play.
