    Hi,

    After talking with my investment counselor about various things, I became curious: So I thought I'd ask:

    At what stage in life did you take up shooting trap on a regular basis? Regular meaning at least three times per month or any registered targets once per month? We were just kicking around where we think consumers will spend bucks in the next few years. Thanks..

    Was it as a youth?

    Early 20's

    Early 30's

    Early 40's

    etc....and was it before or after you either retired or became an empty nester or both?

    Thanks...btw, we were kicking around the ideas of the economist *Mr. Harry S. Dent Jr. who predicts, and rather well, when and what people will spend their bucks on due to demographics.

    Thanks in advance,

    David

    Been shooting trap since 1978 and ATA since 1981. Up until this year was shooting almost once a week during decent weather. This year the fun meter stopped and I put away the guns, attending only the Grand for a couple days. Funny thing is I did not miss it? We shall see what next season brings....

    I started shooting trap in March 2003 at 50 years old.

    I've been shooting ATA since September 2005 and don't plan on giving that up any time soon. Just starting to get in the groove.
