    Look at the old money we us to have. Say the twenty dallor gold coin. You could at that time take that coin and buy a GOOD SUIT. You can take that same coin and today buy a GOOD suit. What coin can you do that with today? NONE.

    With the two threads about the 1911 ATA Metal you can see back then how they had GOOD TROPHYS. Now look at todays trophies. What trophy today will someone ask $5000.00 for in the years to come? NONE. Why are the trophies so poor today. Why are there wine glasses, cheap trays and lamps as prizes? People here say be proud of your sport but why should we be proud when we work so hard to get cheap trophies.

    If I win them, I'll give them to you, Shootlow, but you have to come and visit Martin and me.

    BTW...I don't buy shells anymore, just reloading supplies. :)

    Just lay down, Shootlow. I'll walk on your back for you and straighten you right out. And for a true friend like you, I won't even charge you a dime.

    You might want to have a stick or something to bite on though, it could be a bit painful.

    Hauxfan!

    I thought amateur trapshooting was about sports and personal skill, not material rewards?

    zarathrusta, I have a small placque given me by the scouts for five years service as pack leader. It means more to me than all my trophies.

    The plaque I recieved for coaching a championship grade school fotball team back in the early 60's sits in the place of honor in my trophy case. Up front and center.

    My ex threw all of my awards and trophies in the Niagara river...even my high school letter jacket and class ring. Oh well, I got another class ring when I graduated from College in '97, and I'll get a trophy or two before I keel over.

    Well look at the KY Derby. Did anyone here watch the race? Here are rich people who spent a great deal of money just to get there and all they get is this little BS trophy? Hey look at he hockey trophy, that is a trophy worth winning. it takes two people to lift it. Look at the Super Bowl trophy, that is the right size and worth winning.

    Hi, Gordy...the shoot is July 15, so we would need it just before then. Your generosity is AMAZING, though!!!!

    Don't worry, if I'm still shooting my Perazzi in 2 years, I'm going to buy a blank from you and make my gun BEAUTIFUL. Right now, I just need it functional. I have a feeling, though, that this gun and I are going to grow old together.

    You can help me pick mine when it's time. I'll fly out and see you, and we can take that packing trip of yours at the same time. That will be the summer after next.
