    Unloaded, thanks for the info.


    Lit, you can't believe anything that guy tells you. He used to be an upstanding school teacher but then he fell in with a bad crowd (skeeties I think). Lately he was seen wearing a tutu, carrying a short barrel gun while going to a Obama rally. I am afraid he has "gone over".

    They sent me a 2 yd reduction last year. This year they sent me a letter that said, "Just give up".

    If your getting ruduced to the 18 go shoot with kids. Nobody should be closer than the 20. It's handicap. ok I give, rant for the day!

    Jeez ! ! !

    Just when I had reclaimed me good reputation and had cast aside my tutus and the pantyhose and reclaimed my Ljutic from a bunch of no good skeeties, along comes a gang of beer-swilling, trash-talking, SW Iowegians who proceeded to clean my clock at the Fall Handicap. I had always thought that their thread handles were just pseudo-names . . but they really exist.

    I think I convinced them all to attend the 2013 Nebraska State Shoot and participate in a course of Advanced Target Management.

    Great guys. Had a lot of fun.

    Haven't shot a registered target since summer of 2010. Been "out of town" so to speak.

    But I've kept my ATA membership active.

    Will I be one of the glad recipients of a reduction?

    Hmmm...if I do this right, I could get 5 yds. off this year....

    See, you don't have to be from Kentucky to be good at Target Management...

    P.S. The ATA's EC needs to quit, go back to kindergarten and relearn the definition of competition!!!
