    Check out the "pattern testing" on the back of the traphouse.

    Replace your divots, folks.

    Thanks Guys,

    Henderson Gun Club is a small two trap range with a "Port-a-Potty" and a huge oak tree for shade. Robin Smith is the owner, He and all of the people that shoot there treat everybody like family. They usually have a grill set up to keep you from going hungry while you're there. Yesterday there was 16 or 17 squads for singles and of course less for handicap and doubles. That's a big crowd for two trap fields. Robin has bought another pat trap and is fixing to add another trap field to help cut down on the time it takes for the events. It is a small place, but there is alot of good shooters there and they're all good people.

    Frank, that is a really nice picture with the insets inside the picture.

    Can I ask what program you use to get those effects?

    Thanks, Hauxfan!

    Hey Hauxfan,

    I use a combination of Nikon Capture NX and DXO Optics Pro to process my pictures, but I use the software that came with my flatbed scanner to resize and insert the smaller pictures into the large picture. I use the scanner software simply because I've had it for years and already know how to insert the pictures using it. I'm sure the Nikon Capture NX software (and most likely the DXO also) is capable of doing this, I just haven't bothered getting deep enough into the manual to learn those tasks with that particular software. I'm sure just about any kind of imaging software can do this with no problems. Talk to you later.

    Hi Guy,

    Bring yourself and your clan to either Lavinia or Henderson, TN and I'll take pictures of your bunch and give them to you. Now you can shop around and check, but I don't think you'll find a better deal than that.Ha!!! I don't get to shoot near as often as I would like, but I try to make it to all of the registered shoots at those two places. I only take these pictures as a hobby, it just makes me better at taking pictures of my grandkids. Talk to you later.

    Thanks, Frank, but I doubt I could ever learn all of that.

    It does do a really nice job I must say. Kudos to you.

    Hauxfan!

    A very generous offer Frank, and a great service to your fellow shooters. Many would gladly pay.

    I just wish we were closer to the Volunteer state!

    Is this club also known as "Tull Bottom Gun Club"? Or is Tull Bottom a different club?

    I like how the empty hull is caught in mid-air ... yep ... no shell catcher on that gun ... drives the shooter next to you insane. ;-)

    Where is the picture with the ink-spotted targets? That would be a great addition in one of the corners.

    The Henderson Gun Club and Tull Bottom Gun Club is the same place. And for what it is worth, Southgate Gun Club and Lavinia is the same place.

    Lumper,

    Here is a couple of pictures with better target breaks. These were taken at Corinth, MS. I only took a handful of pictures at Henderson in between the time I finished shooting singles and getting ready to shoot handicap. The way I was shooting that day, I should have left my gun in the case and just used the camera.
