    I am mostly a skeet shooter but I shoot a little unregistered trap too. Hope you all will let a fellow shotgunner on board? I have been reading for a few days and I see a lot of posts that apply to shooters and shotgunners in general.

    I have been shooting many years. I have a teenage son that shoots with me most all of the time. I have been a member on shooting forums since around 2001. I do a fair amount of INTERNET reading, not much on TV. Family comes first and then I love to shoot, and mostly shotguns. I have shot shell reloading experience,and some metallic shooting and reloading experience too.

    Welcome aboard......please take off your pink skirt and tutu before you read/comment on this forum. Trapshooters are a little leary of guys in those outfits..

    All joking aside, Welcome!

    Thanks.

    No need to explain so much because as far as im concerned you are more than welcomed on here but as I think you know most needs to be a little thicked skinned on here so if something someone reply's back to you don't sound as it should then don't worry about it because the next day the same poster might give you ellecent advice so jump right in and get your feet wet im sure some of the answers you want to know has ben answered before but we likem to answer them again also there is a search feature that might answer some questions.

    But anytime I can help then all you got to do is email me and if I can't then im sure I can find someone that can.

    My email address is above.

    foggy!

    Skeet, welcome aboard also. You will get ribbed over being a skeet shooter, i wont rib ya as i am an ex skeet shooter and my dad was a skeet world champ. I myself shoot sporting clays now. Alot of good info here and many helpful people if you have questions. I have met some in person and got to shoot with them. I even got to see and hold the Cole gun, NICE!!!!!!!!!! Enjoy, Bob in Mississippi....... P.S. be forewarned, if you post a picture, the first one has to be a boat.

    Skeet100, there are many here that focus on trap but dabble in skeet; kind of the opposite of you. I'm one of those and really like the sporting events as well. You certainly are welcome here but you must be willing to take some ribbing from the trap-only crowd. It really is in fun and I'm sure you can both learn and help folks from your experience....breakemall....Bob Dodd

    Welcome!!!!

    I have been active on TS for just over a year and yes a thick skin is sometimes needed. In person, (and I have fortunate to meet many of them), most of the guys/gals are great people as most shooters are.

    There are some guys here who really know what they are talking about and some idiots. You will learn who to heed over time.

    One warning, DO NOT follow load advice posted here - check the on line manuals to verify a recipe.

    Now for the important questions;
    Do you shoot 7 1/2's or 8's; 1 oz or 1 1/8 oz? LOL
