    Optimists say the glass is half full.

    Pessimists say the glass is half empty.

    Engineers say the glass is twice as big as it needs to be.

    But trap shooters are sure they missed because the glass was made out of plastic.

    A Pessimist is simply an Optimist with experience.

    Optimist goes to the shoot expecting to win.
    Pessimists hopes they might win something.

    George came the closest with the right answer.

    Optimist going to the shoot.

    Pessimist during the shoot.

    Realist with your head hanging low leaving the shoot.

    lol, Bill

    Pissedoffalotist seems to match a lot of the trap shooters I see these days.:{

    I'm trying to be a procrastinator but I keep putting it off.

    optimist!!!!
    Why else would we spend $5000+ on a gun "knowing" that it will help us shoot better.

    Or is is we need an optimistic ophthalmologist?

    If you think you can or can't, you may be an optimist or a pessimist and you are correct?
