    had a great time at the shoot. shot poorly but had fun. the scorers were very pretty, accept the boy ones. the venders were great, my favorite was team adrenaline, as i'm sure it was for every other red blooded american male there. saw some great shooters shoot and met some really nice people. our new ata delegate gave me some helpful insites while i was talking to my new friend hauxfan who i yhink i converted to a cyclone fan. ha ha lol. if anyone had a bad time they take the game to seriuosly. i don't think it's just about the scores it's about seeing friends and making new ones to me. maybe i feel that way because i'm not to good. jack mitchell

    Jack......I too had a good time at the Iowa State shoot. I should have gotten with Hauxfan to meet new people from this site.

    Sat. I shot my lowest score in the first 100 and my highest in the 2nd 100. LOL.

    One of the things I like about the shoots like that is to watch some of the well known names shoot. They make it look easier than it really is. I did discover that it is easier to shoot a bad score than a good one. LOL

    likes to shoot i'm the true master of the low score and dumb things to do while shooting. today i forgot to shut off my cell phone and it wrang while i was shooting. i hope none of my squad mates heard it. i watched richard marshall and his squad shoot ahead of my squad saturday WOW he really smokes em and so did the rest of his squad. i must of been in awe i shot 89 and 94. if you ever get down to to ottumwa look me up i don't get to far from home to shoot so i'm kind of hard to find elsewhere. jack mitchell

    It was nice to meet you to, Jack.

    Glad you could make it your first state shoot. Being at the state shoot is always a great time.


    As for me becoming a psyclone fan, don't hold your breath........lol

    That will never happen.........But I do hope they win every game but one, and I think you know which one that game is.....lol

    Hauxfan!

    Jack....be sure to schedule this shoot every year. I know you met some of the best BSer's in trapshooting, but not all of them. Haukfan is the BS king, so at least you met the ruler to measure by. Glad you had fun.

    BS king???? I don't think so. Maltzie........If I'm not mistaken, Hugedick was always wearing his knee high waders when he was talking to you at the shoot. There had to be a reason for that.........

    Of course you guys could have been talking about the missing link..........Denny.......aka The Literalist.......

    harleypilot they must have stopped that before i started shooting but don't let that stop you from coming we still have pretty good food.
    maltzie i will definitely go back i really had fun.
    biged i think hauxfan will master the new iron shoot it well he seems to be a dedicated shooter and nice fellow too. i hope all of you can make it to our shoots since i don't get out of town much. i really enjoy seeing all you guys and shooting the sh#t i mean targets. jack
