    Sitting here tonight thinking about shot prices, gas prices. These certainly are going to affect how I make my choices of how, and where, I'm going to shoot.
    But, isn't this still the greatest sport you've competed in? Think about the people you've met, the places you've shot, and seen!Some feedback please.

    Quality isnt cheap but can be affordable lolol, since january i have acquired 31 bags of homemade shot via buying outright or trading wheel weights and all total i have less than 400.00 invested in it, by just simply asking at local club i have been given all the once fired hulls i will ever use espically 12 guage. bargins still exsist but you sure have to look and work harder to find them.

    I too would like to know where in the rule book it says you can't used reclaimed shot. I think it is in the same section that says you can't use once fired hulls.

    I wasn't about to say he wasn't correct without scouring the rulebook.......Maybe figured that it might be one that snuck by me lately

    lgunlvr= To answer your question directly, yes, the places I've been and the characters I've met associated in some way to this sport/hobby/interest/avocation/vice....(ah, I guess you get the picture.), could, can and do fill volumes of remembrances in the short 38 years I've been around it. I just hope I can remember part of when I get too crotchety to still do it! Hopefully that is still a year or two away LOL.

    This trapshooting thing is a damn good sport to get into, getting more expensive, but (to me) still very much worth it. Sometimes who you meet at a shoot are as memorable as the score you shot.

    The rule that RogerC refers to is located in the chapter right after the rule about the use of illegal down riggers.

    I've shoot trap for thirty plus years and have always enjoyed the sport and the people. I cnan say the same for golf, but has gotten to be a bit elitest and expensive.

    It "could" be illegal in the sense that reclaimed shot usually is all sizes. I know the stuff I shoot for practice is not setting foot in a registered shoot. It was from my club around 25 years ago when they shot a lot of Calcutta's and Annies and the shot is about 50% #5's & 6's. I mix about half new #8 with it when I reload for practice.
