    A lot of griping about the ATA and our sport goes on here, and I'm as guilty as anyone. So, I'm starting a thread where I want people to list what the ATA is doing right. Please, no fighting, and no bitching about what's wrong.

    I'll start off by saying the ATA did the right thing by going back to their old target year of September 1st through August 31st.

    I think that the SCTP and AIM programs which expose kids to the shooting sports is one of the ways to improve our sport. The ATA is committing to the future by involving more and more kids and it also involves the adults who support their children's activities. I believe that by exposing the kids and their families to the sport of shooting, we benefit as gun owners as well.

    When I joined, I figured I would have to play by their rules, and any rules they see fit to change. I guess I'll quit when I have to bitch about them. Same with the PITA. Great outfit, let's see one!

    For those of us that do not have other hobbies the ATA helps provide us with

    great fellowship, and many many places to enjoy our sport,our new friends, and

    the fun times that go along with it. Just my $.02 {E}

    I,'m positive I like to shoot trap and I'm positive I like the people with whom I regularly shoot with and I'm positive that the ATA may not be perfect and I'm positive I don't know how I could do a better job than the people who set the rules.
