    I have never been a great shot. I’ve broken some pretty good scores in my time, otherwise I would never have made the 27 but by and large my scores seem to have been pretty common over the years.

    Here is my dilemma. Can’t remember ANY bad scores. It’s like “the older I get, the better I was!” If I cannot remember those scores , then maybe they didn‘t happen. Is it possible that I’m just one hell of lot better than I thought?

    Ok im in the same boat as you I have never been a great shot anyone can look at my averages and see im no All American.

    But im sort of like the song jerry Reed used to sing.

    <object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/Bzewk-FMgS0&hl=en&fs=1&rel=0"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/Bzewk-FMgS0&hl=en&fs=1&rel=0" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed></object>

    If I was hot that day I could beat the best of them and if I wasn't then I probably couldn't even shoot myself because im not good only Lucky every once in awhile.

    Booger,
    An old Cowboy friend of mine told me that "He never met an old man that was not a hell of a young man."

    The older I get the truer this statement is.LOL

    "Here is my dilemma. Can’t remember ANY bad scores."

    Booger is not saying that he hasn't ever shot any "bad" scores, just that he can't "remember" any. Hell, at my age, I can't remember what shooting is.
